    every year I pick a charity to donate to last year it was the sally army but recently they have been getting bad press, so I chose the great north air ambulance, who will you donate to or not and why?

    I have donated to our local NPR station, can't afford much but I think they need to be supported.

    Donating to a charity is one way to show love for our neighbors. An even more personal way is to donate time to those organizations that help others every day. Choose wisely.

    Also, the word most often translated as "charity" in the King James Version of the New Testament is translated as "love" in the New International Version.

    Clearly, charity is love.

    I used to volunteer at a local Community Health Center. But, I've become rather lazy these past two years.
    I listen to NPR almost exclusively when traveling. So I agree Sonhouse, they're deserving of a few shekels.

    (NPR - National Public Radio: I believe they're the most objective news source still to be found in the U.S.)

    I give to a couple. Sponsoring a puppy to be trained as a guide dog for the blind is a favourite as I get emails with video pupdates and get to find out about who has been given the guide dog.

    I’ve also set up a walking group in my community. There are now 5 of us regularly covering 2 evenings a week but we’re expecting more interest once the winter is over. I’m hoping that more local people will join us to improve their physical and mental health or make new friends. In the spring we’ll get a poster put up in our GP surgery.

    I never say who I am donating to or how many charity's as I consider it bragging.

    I give monthly to different organisations. I'm not sure how much actually ends up where it should, but if I give nothing, nothing will.

    I love NPR.

    We support the local veterinary efforts for spaying feral cats and donate goods medicines as well as a little cash for homeless pets.
