How To Select A Charity
There are a lot of worthwhile charities. There are also many which have a disproportionately high amount of expenses and some which are even scams. Know the charity to which you're giving.
Do your homework. Don't select a charity blindly.
Make sure the group is the one you think it is. Many organizations have names that sound confusingly alike. Some are even scams.
