Here you can find a list of charities to consider for your acts of generosity. Of course charity does not address the much bigger problems that created the need, it only helps with a momentary symptom, so it cannot stand as much of a philosophy by itself. But “from each according to their ability”, yes? Some of us will find donating to charities easier, at the beginning, than other forms of outreach work. As this site grows we will add many more ways to put positive spirit action into the world.
We will update this list as we learn more about these groups and others; if you have any corrections, updates, or additions, let us know. We sometimes re-post short-term crowdfunding campaigns on Twitter, so check there regularly as well.

Do not give to the Red Cross as they have a terrible record of wasting and losing the majority of donated money instead of getting services to the people in need, especially after disasters. Also skip the Salvation Army as they push a homophobic, transphobic, theistic agenda.
