“In charity there is no excess.” Francis Bacon

Sometimes doing something nice can get you into real trouble. An example of this would be donating to a charity that turns out to b supporting the drug trade or some other equally unknown insidious act. The problem is that you still want to give money to a worthy cause but are they using the money for the intended purpose and how do you know? Give.Org is brought to you by the Better Business Bureau. They give guidance and suggestions to donors so they can make informed decisions. They have tips on giving and there is a place to make a complaint so that you can inform others as well. They show you how to watch out for scams and hoaxes. I believe if you are planning to donate you should check here first. Give it a try.
