Worth While Causes

In this season of giving, it's sometimes hard to find worthwhile organizations to donate to that really make a difference.

Unicef and some other large organizations are always good, but what are some others you can think of.

Here's links on how to help the children featured on Diane Sawyer's report on Children of the Plains - Pine Ridge.

Here's a link from the show regarding donating:
http://abcnews.go.com/US/organizatio...8#.TtO9V1bnsxI

And the link regarding donating to the individual children featured:
https://www.servicenetwork.com/olg/2020a/default.html

And here's a link to the Wounded Knee School District. Their paypal link doesn't seem to be working, but there's an address to send any donations.

I love the Southwest Indian Foundation's catalog they send out.

http://www.southwestindian.com/

And they seem to do some worthwhile projects, and you can specify if you want to donate to food baskets, scholarships, housing, etc...

I know St. Labre School in Montana and St. Joseph's in South Dakota provide much needed services for Native American kids beyond education, even.

http://www.stlabre.org/Giving/MainGiving.asp

http://www.stjo.org/site/PageServer?...=stjo_homepage

Much thanks to St. Jo's for providing my daughter with help with room, board, and books during her first year of college.

Both these schools are an alternative to foster care for younger students.

Does anyone know anything about whispernthunder.org EREZ ? My church was looking to donate to Pine Ridge to help with winter necessities. But I want to know if this is legit.

From their website it looks like they accept donations for a yearly scholarship.

It didn't say anything about winter necessities.

But here's a couple that do:

and the Red Cross... most think of the organization as an international aid group but the Red Cross is heading into a James Bay Reserve community to help out. Good to see them responding to domestic issues. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/story/...y.html?cmp=rss

In defense of the Southwest Indian Foundation's bad rating:
http://www.nytimes.com/1998/07/12/bu...ted=all&src=pm

While searching charity ratings, I saw one rating group that is doing away with a single rating, stating that people are looking for a quick answer and it's impossible to be fair and rate all the various charities on one set of criteria.

wyo,

I quit giving to charities after finding out the high percentage of money going to administrative and "overhead" costs.

So, I always give directly to the homeless. I don't know whether they use it for a good or bad purpose. But I do know they get cold and have to eat.

Yep, it's good to be able to donate directly to the person who really needs it. Although you have to watch out for that too. In Billings, they found that the guys that hang out at the high traffic corners clear between $100-200 a day.

I'm into giving food boxes...cuz everybody needs to eat. A few times we've given food to the guys sitting around soliciting. We really need a food bank on the reservation. There's only one in the whole county and only open two days a week for a couple hours, or until they run out of food.

Of course there's a need for clean water here too. Fort Washakie water is the BOMB, and won some prizes for best tasting water in the country, but on the rest of the reservation...DON'T drink the water!!!

And my other big push is housing renovation. The housing authorities work on houses under their program, the weatherization program services a few more houses a year, but the majority of folks can't keep their houses in repair due to many factors: mostly cost, and lack of repairmen willing to come out to the rez due to TERO regulations.

When my mom was a public health nurse, she visited a lot of homes and got to know which ones were in true need. It was fun doing a Christmas present roundup for those families.

As if it needs to be reiterated; but they need more training programs in areas like construction, building repair and even basic home maintenance for home owners. It would create both short and long term jobs. Otherwise the TERO regulations are going to need to make room for a few exceptions.

I don't usually give to a charity for the exact reason that @WhoMe doesn't. I either donate the items or my services directly. Like working on a Habitat For Humanity house.

I'm into giving food boxes...cuz everybody needs to eat.

wyo,

Thank you for posting this thread on giving. Everytime I think I have it bad ... I am always reminded there are many people who are worse off.

I am not above buying panhandlers a meal. One time one just looked at me puzzled, chucked the McDonald's meal I just bought him and continued to shake his change cup. *L
