YES YES YES

Never trust big organizations for animals such as: PETA, Humane Society, ASPCA, Bideawee, they are all bad and they euthanize pitbulls! I understand that there are some violent pits, but they never give them a chance! So fvck them!

Bad organizations for humans: Operation Smile, Locks for Love, Red Cross,  any organization that supposedly helped Haiti after the earthquake (I used to have a list of them, but lost it), pretty much any big organization that claims to help kids in South/Central American countries is fake. I don't care if they send you every month a pic of those kids, it does not mean there aren't another 10k people receiving the exact same pic.

Giving your change to supermarkets that ask you to help is not a smart choice, because they use your donations to make their donation and with that they are the ones getting a tax relief due to donations (and you don't even know how much was given to them to "donate" to those charities and how much they kept for themselves).


I like small charities and I always search for reviews because even the small ones can be bad.


Some that are good: One Tail at a Time (Chicago), Midnight Mission (skid row LA), Tiffany McBee's Broken Hearts (rescued pits that were used for fighting when there was a big breakdown of one a few years ago), Kidsave (helps L.A. foster children be adopted or to have a lifelong adult connection in their life to help them out with opening bank account, etc; helps Colombian and Russian kids be adopted).....

ahh for meaningful travel.   I do see value in seeing how others live, it can be eye opening and you learn so much about your grit

I pay school fees for a few kids with great potential and little means ... I pay the school through the bank directly because I didn't feel right about the charity that brought them to my attention

I've had my concerns too about how much goes to the people in need, which is why I focus on local giving/volunteering

I agree with local charities. These can also be more rewarding since they are in your own community.

I was right giddy when I finally weighed enough to donate blood. Until then I always worked the blood drives but couldn't donate.

Coco, I would suggest you try something a little closer to home before you embark on the international volunteer work.

The experience of volunteering from sunup til sundown in weather you're not used to, food you're not used to, and difficult conditions (no or limited access to running water, using an outhouse or worse, sleeping in stifling heat under mosquito nets,e tc) can be really really harsh. Exhaustion, undernourishment, and straight up stress will get you.

I'd try doing something outside of your comfort zone...like working all day at a farm or habitat for humanity but in a hot/humid place first.
