The end of the year is coming, are you searching for a place to maximize your charitable contributions before 2015 is over?
My husband introduced me to a place called Watsi where you can donate to help specific people with specific medical needs. We have given through them several times now over the last year or more, and I must say it is a really fun way to give!!! Not only do you feel connected because you get to know who you are helping, but they send you an email update to let you know when the persons treatment is complete! They also use 100% of the money to fund the procedures. There is a place where you can add an extra “tip” amount that they can use for the operating expenses if you want to. The other neat thing is you don’t have to be rich to donate and you don’t have to be able to fund an entire procedure! You can literally donate a small amount that covers a share of a person’s need. If you have a little extra to give this year, I’d encourage you to check it out.
It seems like it would go without saying, but: I was not compensated in any way for this post and all the opinions are my own and do not represent those of any other person or organization.
