Many people want to contribute to causes but with all the scams and inefficiencies of some bureaucratic behemoths, you can't be sure that your money is getting to the needy.
I was impressed by a recent tour of the Cleveland Foodbank.
They are able to provide 4 meals for every $1 they receive in donations. Give them $10 and they will make 40 meals. $100 turns into 400 meals and so on.
Currently the Harvest for Hunger campaign is going on. This is an opportunity to help feed hungry people in the community in an incredibly frugal and efficient way.
You can donate online right now.
