    To Tabbycat: You can also take old blankets, sheets, towels, and confetti to your pet shelter. The animals can use these discards that we no longer use and it's going for a good cause.

    I love National Public Radio.

    Hubby and I give 10% of our income (a tithe of sorts) to Brazos Feral Cat Allies.

    Brazos Feral Cat Allies

    We both love cats.

    Currently, I cannot afford to make monetary donations, though in the past, when i was making good money, i would regularly contribute quite a bit to:

    * Nature Conservancy
    * Audobon
    * World Wildlife Fund

    Since i don't have dependents and will lkely outlive my immediate family members, I am leaving at half my estate to these and other charitable groups.

    I have a lot of "stuff" to donate, and I found out that the one of the SPCAs I support has a thrift shop. They will be getting old clothes, etc from here on out.

    I never realized that Goodwill was not a nonprofit. As a tax preparer, I've had several clients write off "clothes to goodwill" as a noncash contribution.

    I've never been one to give old clothes to the Salvation Army because they are a church. I don't believe in organized religion, and I'd feel like a hypocrite supporting it (kinda like a pro-lifer giving to Planned Parenthood)

    Girl Scouts is my #1 organization. They had a huge impact in my life and they continue to impact the girls of today. I tend to just give time, when I can, but I ALWAYS buy cookies when they ask!

    Susan G. Komen- I've done Race for the Cure for several years.

    Goodwill- we usually donate our "stuff" here. Recently I've been rethinking this though. I don't like that they aren't non-profit. So maybe in the future I'll give it to the Salvation Army or a church.

    United Way
    Red Cross
    Northern Illinois Food Bank
    a local woman's/childrens shelter (household items)

    I used to donate to the Humane Society, but they were sending me crap every month to try and get more donations (key chains, calendars, address lables, etc) and felt that the money they spent on marketing should be going to the animals, not trying to get more money. It's fine to send the occasional letter as a reminder "hey, remember us?", but this was way over the top. I'm going to find a local shelter around here and donate directly to them.

    Oh, and I put change into the Salvation Army kettle during the holidays. Every one I see gets whatever change I have on me!

    I always support the SPCA, they can always use the funds to help shelter animals. I do it because I'm a dog lover, I can't stand to see dogs being put down because an owner neglects them.
