I've always held a strong belief that charity is important. Knowing that there are literally billions of people on this planet that would trade places with me (and you) in an instant has really helped me keep things in perspective, especially when days aren't going my way. I liken the fact that I was born in this country to winning some sort of cosmic lottery. Though my volunteer time has been limited, I try to give once during the summer months, then again around this time of year. It got me thinking about the charities I've supported over the years, both good and bad, and made me curious to hear about some of your favorites. Lets hear em!
