Posted on 10/20/2011

We always knew you were kind-hearted, but our latest Twitter and Facebook poll proves it. As we enter the season of giving we wanted to know what charities you love supporting. While your answers varied from organizations educating women in Africa to nonprofits helping orphans here in America they all seem like great causes working to make the world a better place.


Facebook Christina Nicole Brooks: Pendleton Place Children's Home. Our church is very close with them and we do an art auction every year for them- we paint with the children and then sell the children's artwork to help Pendleton Place raise their yearly support.


Jen Spencer: My friend Tanyella Evans is running the New York City Marathon to raise money for Camfed educating women in Africa. SUCH a great cause, innovative and effective. I'm not running 26.2 miles, but I DID give Tanyella money for the brilliant cause!


Joel Fitch: A buddy of mine is in the band "The Museum" and has tuned me into Not For Sale (fights human trafficking).


April Gray: ‎Water of Life has a great view of the big picture for humanitarian aide: They provide both physical relief (clean water) and spiritual hope (Jesus!) around the world, and actually strive to work with indigenous partners for sustainable change to a village that will lead to growth, independence, and health.


Jack andTamara Harrison: I really like Gospel for Asia. I recently gave just a very small amount to them, and they sent me a postcard later thanking me and telling me they were praying for me personally. So sweet!


Anna Lindgren: March of Dimes, they do amazing things!
Beth Marshall: Compassion International- love the way they steward resources with integrity; and how a few dollars go a long way to reach kids all over the world.


Morgenne Basye: I am walking this Saturday to support the ALS Association.


Jeannie McCarragher Hodes: Operation Breakthrough here in Kansas City. Two nuns basically ditched the Catholic church to help inner city families after the church wanted to move to the suburbs 40 yrs ago. They provide free day care to hundreds of working poor families. These mostly single moms wouldn't be able to work without it because they don't make enough to pay for outrageous costs of childcare.


Tonya Kirk-Christopher: I.C.A.R.E DOG RESCUE! out of Orange County, CA!!!!


Kristan Geary: Opportunities Unlimited in Sioux City works with adults who were just like you or I and experienced a traumatic brain injury. Recently, we were awarded a contract through the department of Veterans Affairs to provide rehabilitation to veterans who have experienced a brain injury. We also work with 150 children affected by various disabilities. Our vocational program, Jumpy Monkey Coffee Roasting Company, also gives our individuals served a paycheck and the opportunity to produce a quality product that is now sold throughout the Midwest. It is so awesome to see little miracles happen every single day!


Twitter
@TJRum: Project Care (b/c I work there), @MiracleHill, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Serenity Place.


@jessekkramer: I support Earthchild Project, (http://www.earthchildproject.org/) if every child was taught by them, the world would be clean, happy, less stressed and respectful.


@LovelyOnTheGo: I am a huge supporter of Project Linus and @OurTimeStutter!


@Kimbankspr: Wounded Warriors, Greenville Humane Society and Shriner’s Hospital. Just gave to all three through FCPR's charitable efforts. :)


@JenDunaway: I love Open Hand (www.projectopenhand.org) in Atlanta. It’s an amazing organization that provides nutritious meals to those with medical issues and/or can’t afford them. They’re not only feeding the hungry, but ensuring they get the proper nutrition they need while doing so and in turn, bettering their health. It’s great to support financially, but I love seeing so many people from the community volunteer to help cook and deliver the meals.
