Who/What/How to support?
Well, as Amylia said – any support is helpful.
This evening I spent some time on the site of Charity Navigator. The information presented is pretty thorough and easy to understand. I looked at their reports for ADA, JDRF and The Iacocca Foundation. I’m not going to summarize the reports shown. I think we should each check out any charity we plan to donate to, ourselves. The site also has many helpful tips on how to donate.
One of the charities we support is the Christian Foundation for Children and Aging. We support a young lady in India. She and I write to each other several times each year and I enjoy it. She should have “aged out” by now but is going to nursing school and so we continue our support of her.
In any case, our support of charities and for those of us with diabetes, diabetes research, is important – be it financial or volunteer help. So we should keep on walking, biking, writing, talking and giving when we can.
