I'm Asking: What's Your Favorite Charity?

I'm sure your heart is full of gratitude as Thanksgiving is slowly creeping up upon us. I'm all about doing good this November, and I began the month with steps on how you can start your own volunteering initiative at the office. I then followed up with suggestions for the different activities like charity runs and petitions that you can implement at your company. But I'm wondering what nonprofit or volunteer activity appeals the most to readers.

One of my favorites is Room to Read, because I'm a bookworm and a big advocate of education being one of the key factors to eradicating poverty. This organization sets up libraries and builds schools in developing countries. Room to Read also publishes books in the local languages of the poverty-stricken areas and supports the secondary education for girls in third-world countries. What about you — what nonprofit inspires you to keep on giving?

The Canopy Center (it's run by my aunt--they work to prevent child abuse), United Way, and the Alzheimer's research fund.

I give to World Vision, Children International, and InnerChange (works with inner city/juvenile delinquent youth). All awesome non-profits. But one I don't give to and REALLY admire is International Justice Mission (IJM) - they do justice work to get women out of sex trafficking.

Room to read seems to be a great program. I also like Habitat for Humanity.
