Here are the top ten articles for the Charity Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!
1. No-Show Fundraisers
If non-profit organizations could host huge events with minimal expenses and a large profit, don’t you think they’d jump at the chance? It’s called a “no-show” fundraising event, and in today’s economy it should definitely be considered.
2. Kids Vote to Decide How Disney Donates $1 Million
Disney, no stranger to corporate philanthropy, is encouraging its young fans to believe they can make a difference in the world. With “Friends for Change,” Disney has even given kids the power to determine how its $1 million donation will be divided.
3. How to Help Haiti Best
Tragedy has struck again, and again the world is mobilizing to raise much-need funds to help the people of earthquake-ravaged Haiti. With so many charities rushing to help, make sure your dollars are going to legitimate organizations that have the infrastructure to truly make a difference.
4. Think Pink in October for Breast Cancer Awareness
It just wouldn’t be October without a little pink (well, a lot of pink, actually). October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, has become the time of year for breast cancer related charities to raise funds and awareness. Indeed, it’s almost as prevalent as Halloween.
5. Blind Side Movie Inspires Charity
The movie, “The Blind Side,” is a case study in how one family chose to turn a blind eye to those who simply could not understand their charitable nature.
6. Alex's Lemonade Stand
CBS 3 will be holding an on-air fundraiser in honor of Alexandra Scott to raise awareness of pediatric cancer.
7. Kindness, Pass it on!
Since this week is Random Acts of Kindness Week, I thought I'd pass along this list of suggestions from the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation.
8. The Envelope Please
Charity Navigator, the premier evaluator of charities, offers insight and accuracy about AIDS PROJECT Los Angeles.
9. Mercy Corps
Mercy Corps, an organization providing humanitarian aid and releif efforts in the Middle East and around the world, garnered a top rating from Charity Navigator.
10. Cheap Charity
This time of year, we always see headlines that help us buy gifts at reasonable prices. "20 gifts under $20," and so on. Why not a useful resource for how to be charitable, especially in the holiday season, without going broke?
