    That's the main question for me. Several years ago there was peak of charity collectors ringing on your door and asking you to donate to their cause. They were offering a ticket back as a proof the hole thing is not a fraud. So I did on several occasions only to find out that it actually was a fraud.

    Since then, when I decide to donate anything I only do so with honorable organizations that have established their good name over a couple of decades.
    I always check out the charity on Charity Navigator before I donate:

      Sometimes you can not trust but you can donate to famous charities.

      I personally have a website for free donations and for example if someone visit it daily and if they click the buttons then they have to trust me. But at this point they dont give any money.

      So you must donate to registered good organizations if you are giving money and leave the rest to God.

        You are absolutely right. Its much better to give someone who really need, of course without make him ashamed but its really hard these days to find people who really need and i am also worried how they will spend the money. Because i dont want my money that i wanted to give someone to spend for some booze by an alcoholic father. Thats why i suggest if we have people around us who really needs our help we can buy food or clothes or stuff they really need and we can put those in a box leave at their door step, ring the bell and run away Thats my way

          Thank you Red Thunder Bird. I just want to do some good for people in need. Most of the people dont even notice how good their life is. Maybe they would notice it when they become poor. This world is enough for all of us. No need for anyone to suffer Have a great day my friend.

              Donate your time. Some charities don't have a problem raising money, but they have a problem getting enough volunteers to carry out their mission. For example, Meals On Wheels could always use delivery drivers.

                Your time is the most valuable gift of all - give often!

                  I recently spent some time at a care center for the elderly - had a nice time just meeting people and listening to the stories. One can learn a great deal just getting away from the everyday and spending an afternoon there.

                  Will take the family next.

                    i feel the same way, but I think we are always saying that, really we could probably downisize how we are living and would have more money to donate. the more we earn the more we spend

                      I feel bad as well. But I think everyone feels bad about not giving around this time of year (at least in America). I think the real key is to find a real, renewable way to give throughout the year. If anyone figures that out, let me know. LOL But seriously, I think you need to get your own finances together before you can worry about others.

                        Helping to charity is not all about giving money.
                        This Valentine's Day, we can express our love to people in need. Giving a card is enough to make them smile..

                          I want to give you a reference from all the sacred books which were reveled by God almighty that if you are suffering loss in your business than do charity .It means you are doing business with god and god never disappoints a man and returns back more than a person.

                            i agree with jeffrey ! you can sign in some projects that are "for free" and you help people just with your good will. Look for it!

                              Donate what you can. If you have time then give time, if you can drive then drive, if you can donate your time or talents another way then do that. If it helps donate more or gives you an excuse be sure to keep receipts and track mileage/etc because you will be able to write it off on your taxes (up to the yearly limit).

                                I'd love to one day have enough money and not be in debt so I can donate too. I do give what I can when I can. I try to give away books I've read, clothing that's still in good condition, and some household stuff as I get new things as gifts and what not.
