  • Reliable charities for Christmas donating

    12/03/2023 6:40:27 AM PST · by bluescape · 26 replies
    Our household usually gets some toys and takes them to the local fire station during Christmas. They distribute them to needy children. Our church use to have a similar event but not this year. I'd like to see a list from the Freepers of good and bad charities that they know of. There are plenty of places to donate if one looks around, but some have high overhead and less get to those in need. I know of other organizations that have become politicized and not in a good way. Also I'm interested in seeing a sort of update on...

    Religious organizations are no longer the most trusted charities, according to the released by the BBB Wise Giving Alliance ( Religious organizations topped the list from its inception in 2017 until 2022, but fell to third this year. Veterans organizations and not-for-profit hospitals now rank more highly as the most trusted charities for American donors. Religious groups are still the most highly trusted charity category by the “Mature” and “Boomer” generations. In all, 34.8% of Matures (age 76-93) ranked religious organizations as their most highly trusted charity in contrast to only 18.4% of Generation Z (age 18-24). Gen Z is...

    Even as Hamas continues to hold civilian hostages, including about 10 Americans, no less than 17 Hamas-linked charities are operating in the open, sending money to Hamas or Hamas proxies and sometimes spreading Hamas propaganda in return. A Middle East Forum investigation published in the Focus on Western Islam documents over $260 million donated to Hamas-aligned 501(c)3, tax-exempt charitable organizations. According to the report, "Donors include the foundation arms of household companies such as PayPal, Fidelity, Shell, J.P. Morgan, Bank of America, Schwab, along with major philanthropic charities such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation."When the FBI is making...

    When you give to your local food bank, make sure you're stocking their shelves with what they really need—and avoid what they don't.

    This investigation reveals the shocking true story of the Everybody Votes campaign—the largest and most corrupt “charitable” voter registration effort in American history—that may have decided the 2020 presidential election and could decide 2024. Commissioned by Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, funded by the Democratic Party’s biggest donors, and coordinated with cutthroat Democratic consultants, the Everybody Votes campaign used the guise of civic-minded charity to selectively register millions of “non-white” swing-state voters in the hopes of getting out the Democratic vote for a 2020 presidential win. It worked. The Voter Registration Project Our exclusive research reveals how a little-known organization...
  • Soros-funded charity accused in IRS complaint of illegally not disclosing lobbying

    A George Soros-backed immigration charity that pushes for open borders is being accused by a conservative watchdog in an IRS complaint of unlawfully failing to disclose how it lobbied Congress. Alianza Americas may have violated federal law in recent years by claiming on tax forms it had not lobbied despite engaging in activities that seemingly constitute formal advocacy, attorneys specializing in charity law say. Now the National Legal and Policy Center, a conservative watchdog, is calling on the IRS to "conduct a full investigation and audit" into the Chicago group's apparent 2021 lobbying, as well as impose fines and revoke...

    I recently picked up a copy of Pierre Toussaint: A Citizen of Old New York by Arthur and Elizabeth Odell Sheehan at a homeschool conference on Long Island. Truth be told, I knew next to nothing about Toussaint before I began reading, though I can honestly say I had wanted to know more about him. I especially wanted to know what heroic virtues this man possessed that has him on the path to canonization as a saint of the Catholic Church. Well, to start with, Venerable Pierre Toussaint's life story is anything but typical. It is a study in contrasts...

    A Washington state-based grocery chain is under scrutiny for asking customers to donate to diversity, equity and inclusion “awareness” with some online critics lobbing criticism at the company. A screenshot obtained by Fox News Digital shows a checkout kiosk at Haggen Grocery Store that asks shoppers whether they want to donate $1, $3, $5 or another amount to “help advocate for DEI Awareness” when they checkout. Customers can also decline if they want, the screenshot shows. Haggen is owned by mega-company Albertsons. Behind the kiosk, an advertisement for the Haggen Foundation tells patrons that from June 14 through mid-August, they...

    Customers checking out at Macy's this month have been surprised by a request during checkout to "round up" and make a donation to the controversial group, The Trevor Project, which has been accused of grooming children through its at-risk hotlines for LGBTQ youth. Macy's support of The Trevor Project is nothing new -- the relationship between the two organizations dates back more than ten years by now. It turns out that Macy's is, in fact, the largest funder of The Trevor Project, and a proud national Pride partner. This goes hand-in-hand with Macy's DEI commitment, of course, which has "become...

    At best, they have no idea what they're doing. At worst, they're supporting evil causes. wait in line for the self-checkout even when a line for an in-person cashier is unoccupied. It's not that I dislike human cashiers; it's just that I prefer being in control of the check-out process and the typical convenience of the self-checkout. There's another reason that I prefer the self-checkout: I never get solicited by a cashier at a self-checkout. It seems that retail, fast food, financial corporations, and the like are in the business these days of asking their customers to donate to one...

    America’s Sweetheart from the silent movie era, Mary Pickford, died, aged 87, on this day, 44 years ago, in 1979. “If you have made mistakes, even serious mistakes, there is always another chance for you.” she is renowned to have said, “And supposing you have tried and failed again and again, you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down, but the staying down.” On set, Pickford’s habit was to hang a bucket and ask everyone working to put some money for other film workers who were not...

    Ever since corrupt POTUS, Democrat Barack Obama, had his IRS assistant, Lois Lerner, hand out nonprofit and charity status to every radical leftist- the United States of America has had a shadow government problem with groups of Marxists acting as Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) because they have unimaginable wealth and power over voting Americans. One of the leading Marxists, Abrams, is in the headlines this week for being exposed to problems with her charity. Her latest tax filings alerted legal experts to push for the IRS to probe Abrams’s group called: New Georgia Project, whose mission is to turn Georgia blue....

    Hody Childress was a farmer living off his meager retirement savings in the small town of Geraldine, Ala. About 10 years ago, he walked into Geraldine Drugs and pulled aside owner Brooke Walker to ask if there were families in town who couldn't afford to pay for their medications. "I told him, 'Yes, unfortunately that happens often,'" recalled Walker, 38. "And he handed me a $100 bill, all folded up." He told her to use it for anyone who couldn't afford their prescriptions. "He said, 'Don't tell a soul where the money came from - if they ask, just tell...

    A coalition of Christian and interfaith leaders in Texas are calling on members of U.S. Congress to condemn "anti-Christian hate and bigotry" from a local nonprofit they say is raising funds to demolish churches in India. The Federation of Indian American Christian Organization in North America (FIACONA) held a news conference Tuesday, warning that the Texas-based Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) is raising money in the United States to level churches and forcibly convert Christians and Muslims in India to Hinduism. A Dec. 13 letter obtained by The Christian Post and addressed to U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz and John Cornyn,...
