Wondering how to help this season? Here are some worthy causes to help a lot of people around the world and could use your support.
Toys For Tots
Donating a Toy is one of the experiences that makes Marine Toys for Tots different from other programs.
When you place a toy in a Marine Toys for Tots collection box or donate it to one of the Local Campaigns, you experience the joy of knowing that toy will be under the tree in a families home and will bring a smile to a less fortunate child Christmas morning. This gives our supporters a unique personal connection to Marine Toys for Tots.
Over 97% of your donation goes directly to the mission of providing toys, books, and other gifts to less fortunate children. The 3% spent on support principally covers fundraising expenses — not one donated dollar goes to salaries or any other manpower costs.
Donate at a local toy drop off or online at www.toysfortots.org
The Salvation Army exists to meet human need wherever, whenever, and however we can.
First, they assess the needs of each community in which they serve. They work to understand the obstacles, hardships, and challenges native to the area’s particular population.
Next, they build local programs designed to offer immediate relief, short-term care, and long-term growth in the areas that will best benefit the community.
Then, they offer the local programs to the local community, working to continually optimize their efficacy via spiritual, physical, and emotional service.

The American Red Cross
Each day, thousands of people – people just like you – provide compassionate care to those in need. Our network of generous donors, volunteers and employees share a mission of preventing and relieving suffering, here at home and around the world.
We roll up our sleeves and donate time, money and blood. We learn or teach life-saving skills so our communities can be better prepared when the need arises. We do this every day because the Red Cross is needed – every day.

UNICEF has helped save more children’s lives than any other humanitarian organization.
Thousands of children under the age of 5 die every day because they lack proper nutrition, safe drinking water, affordable vaccines and other basic necessities that most people in the U.S. take for granted. UNICEF’s lifesaving interventions and programs around the world have helped reduce the number of child deaths by more than 50% since 1990.
Rated one of the best charities to donate to, 88.4% of every dollar spent goes directly to help children.
