Choose a Charity to Support

Choosing a Charity

With thousands of charities to support, how do you choose which one or two are most deserving of your support?

Whilst circumstances, like natural disasters, can dictate the target of one-off donations, a little more thought needs to be given to any regular payments you might choose to make.

Sometimes choosing a charity occurs naturally. A medical charity has more meaning when you or a loved one has been affected by that particular illness. A love for a particular animal makes saving them and their habitat a priority. But sometimes the more deserving charities can be ignored in the media, considered less fashionable. Take a look through the following sites for ideas.
