We Donate to battered womens shelters and hospital patient support homes.
I give to a small group of charities we’ve vetted like Institute for Justice, Alliance Defending Freedom, our church. I somehow ended up on a ton of mailing lists for prior donations, because they share mailing lists. I don’t donate to any of the mailer solicitations anymore.
I donate items to the shelter and Operation Paperback. That does more for the troops than money to Wounded Warrior Project and other charities for vets.
After Chick-Fila’s betrayal, I took the very full small change jar and dumped it into the nearest Salvation Army kettle. My eldest daughter came with me, because I said that I meant I’d do that and had her see me do it. We’ve also stopped eating at Chick-Fila. We used to count that as charity, helping a Christian employer.
