Charity: How to Decide Where to Give This Year
I always wish I had more money to give to charity, especially around now when the wind gets colder and my mind goes to year-end holidays and taxes and how many people might have to sleep outside when it snows. And then I think about people I love who have or have had diseases that need research funding. And my pet interests: education and mental health awareness. How to decide where to give the small amount I do have?
It's hard to look at things like charitable giving objectively, which is why I really like these tips from The Conscious Perspective. She writes:

Or you can use the power of social media and your voice to spread the word to raise funds and awareness about the cause.
