My local church and I have a friend who is a missionary in Tanzania, East Africa.  I send him stuff once in a while.  It costs more to mail the stuff then it is worth, but I know he enjoys getting it.

Oh, yea,  IHD.com   :2thumbsup;

I give to Katherine's Classroom. Yes that is right my own classroom gets a good bit of my money in order to provide prizes and treats, as well as curriculum and supplies for the kids.  They only gave us 150.00 for supplies this year.  It went really fast.  I had to buy copy paper this year just to begin the year.  I have to stingy with supplies.  I also purchase my own books and curriculum to supplement what I am teaching as needed. 

Anyone interested in a nontax free donation?  (Just kidding!)

OMG I have nightmares about Radio lollipop. It was playing constantly while I was in the childrens hospital. I was so unwell and I just wanted some quiet. I asked for it to be turned off in my room but they could only turn it down, which made it even more annoying. So I thought, well I'll request a song that I like. They didnt play it until the last song of the night lol Cant stand that song now.

I give to various charities if I happen to have some spare change at the time. If I am harrassed at the shops or on my home phone, they wont get a cent out of me. I only donate in my own time.
