Recommended Charities

charity:  water
This is a great organization that is working to bring safe water to everyone on earth. Water is the best starting point for fixing a variety of problems in the word because when people have clean, safe water, a lot of other issues disappear.
I really like the concept they came up with of donating your birthday. I also like that 100% of your donation goes toward the cause.

This organization helps kids of various backgrounds from all over the country get into top universities, often with full scholarships, by creating a single application that is universally accepted. Beyond helping kids realize the opportunities that are out there, I love the efficiency of the universal application.

This may be the greatest radio station on earth. They have the perfect mix of talk and music with minimal advertising. The pledge drives are brutal, but even that was recently streamlined.

Your Favorite Local Charity
In addition to the charities above, we recommend everyone donate their time and money to worthy causes in their community. When you donate to a cause that is helping people halfway around the world, it's hard to see the impact you are making, but when you get involved close to home, there's no doubt your making a difference. There are lots of places to get involved, but if you don't know where to start, your local schools would probably be more than happy to have your help. Another option is your local chapter of the Salvation Army, and there are almost certainly many more. So get out there and get involved.
