...But I consider them rather faceless. I instead helped out people I know personally that needed assistance.
Amongst other things I helped some friends haul hay on New Years Day, and then volunteer assisting at their day camp in the summer when their father lost his job and the family lost their mother to cancer. For my brother I helped cover rent for a month until he could get a new job and a decent paycheck.
Do I ever expect or even ask to be repaid? Absolutely not! What many people fail to realize is that the people around you need your help just as much as these charities do. We go so far to save the world, but never think about our brother/neighbor.
