Yesterday I gave to the Second Amendment Foundation and the NY State Rifle & Pistol Association.
In terms of giving to charities....I’ve given liberally to the Salvation Army for many reasons, not the least of which is the fact that the overwhelming majority of what you give actually goes to those you intend to help. Their overhead is ridiculously low; great organization.
Give to someone you know is in need. If you don’t know of someone then give to a local organization. The closer you keep it to home, the better for your area.
There’s a neighbor who is constantly asking for donations to fly to some foreign country to do charity work. I keep telling him he’s wasting good money buying plane tickets and hotel rooms when people on his own block need the help. His response is to get mad.
