This is a page you will wish to revisit frequently. As I find or hear about web sites that are truly helping others, I will add them to this page. When it’s too full, I will begin another page of the same title with the next number (i.e. #2 and so on). I only include sites that I am assured are legitimate charity sites.
The Hunger Site works to eradicate world hunger and is the leader in online activism in the hunger arena. They offer several methods of giving; but the most prominent is to visit daily and click the yellow “Click Here to Give” button. Each time this button is clicked by a daily unique visitor, the sponsors at this site pay for a cup of food for someone in need. So, even if you don’t want to donate money, you are still donating food at no cost to you! Please visit the web site to learn more.
Another site that helps to eradicate hunger is America’s Second Harvest web site. This group feeds the hungry of the USA through the nation’s Food Bank Network. One dollar can provide 16 meals. Please visit the web site to learn more.
Started by Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham and a minister in his own right, Samaritan’s Purse is a non-profit, international Christian relief organization, providing emergency relief and development assistance to suffering people around the world. The web site link below is especially important, something you can do with your children all year long — stuff shoe boxes to be given as gifts to children in need at Christmas. The program is called Operation Christmas Child. Please visit the web site to learn more.
This group is an international medical humanitarian organization, working in nearly 60 countries to assist people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect or catastrophe.
