    Ivanka Trump is credited with a $50,000 donation to a Plano, Texas church that helps those detained at the border. Let’s face it, it’s been a rough week with the press coverage of the situation on the border for illegal aliens and their children. While much of the overwrought reporting has been discredited and Barack Obama’s policies have come under a newly found scrutiny, First Daughter Ivanka quietly donated a chunk of change to help out those trying to come into our country the illegal way. A little good news story is welcomed.Naturally, the source of this feel-good story...

    The DNC has voted not to accept any donations from fossil fuel companies. From HuffPost: The resolution ― proposed by Christine Pelosi, a party activist and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s daughter ― bars the organization from accepting contributions from corporate political action committees tied to the oil, gas and coal industries. The executive committee voted unanimously to approve the motion. “We talk about how climate change is real and climate change is a planetary emergency, what we need to do is stop taking money from the institutions that have created this crisis,” said RL Miller, president of the super...

    A Seattle man who recently sought to end his monthly donation to a Hillary Clinton nonprofit group ran into a small roadblock: There was no way to cancel his contribution, according to a report. Corey Koscielniak, 29, wanted to stop his $10.48 recurring tithe to Onward Together, the politican action organization Clinton formed after her 2016 election defeat, because the group disclosed little information on how it spent the money, he told the Seattle Times. Onward Together (OT) accepts payment information, but provides no ability to alter or cancel donations once the initial donation is received, Koscielniak wrote in his...
  • Recommendations for car donations please

    Vanity
    I am considering donating my car to a charity. The internet is full of charities that want the car but there is very little on the money management "internals" that say how the money is distributed. The BBB says some give as little as 4% up to 44% but usually they don't name names at either end of the spectrum. Any Freepers out there with recommendations and positive experiences? My preference would be to donate to Disabled Veterans, Veterans or animal welfare organizations in that order.

    Dear FReepers and Lurkers; As you all know, we are in the midst of another Freep-a-thon. The going is slower than we would like, but we are getting there. FReepers have stood by this forum for decades now. That's because we use this as a major source of news here in the United States and from around the world. We know that we will read what was reported, and discuss it. If the MSM is trying to slip something by, one or more of our FReepers will catch it and address it. If something isn't reported, our FReepers will raise...

    Colin Kaepernick entered the home stretch of his Million Dollar Pledge last week with a donation to one of Democratic moneyman George Soross favorite left-wing resistance groups. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback announced Thursday that his foundation would give $10,000 to the Advancement Project as part of his commitment to donate $1 million to organizations working in oppressed communities. Advancement Project has another prominent funder: Mr. Soros, whose major philanthropies have given more than $9.5 million to the group since 1999, according to the conservative Capital Research Center.

    resident Trump may have thrown his support to GOP Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, but another Republican, Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, made it clear he does not think Moore should be elected to fill Jeff Sessions' former seat. He wrote a $100 check to Moore's opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, and tweeted a photo, with a simple caption, "Country over Party." The Arizona senator has also tweeted, "Just to be clear. If the choice is between Roy Moore and a Democrat, I would run to the polling place to vote for the Democrat." After the Washington Post reported that several women...

    I just received a call from the RNC in DC asking for a donation. Normally I don't pick up on these calls but this morning, after reading the Breitbart article on Session, I answered the call. Before the woman could continue her sales pitch, I said, "I'm not sending the Republican Party another dime until Sessions is replaced and the DOJ prosecutes the Clintons". The woman's started speaking, "Well, you know sir..." My response. "Click". Maybe if they get enough responses like this, they'll get the message. What can I say, I'm an optimist.

    NBC Meet the Press host Chuck Todd has a wife whos active in Democratic Party strategic communications, and sometimes donates to Democrats. In 2012, Kristian Denny Todd contributed $2,500 to Sen. Tim Kaine. Todd never felt any need to disclose this during his three recent Kaine interviews on NBC (August 7, September 18, and October 23). But Maverick Mail & Strategies, the firm Mrs. Todd founded in 2007 with fellow James Webb aides Steve Jarding and Jessica Vanden Berg, did heavy lifting for openly socialist Bernie Sanders for President this year. Open Secrets shows a bill for $1.992 million made...

Thiel's donation will be given through Super PACs and directly to Trump's campaign, according to the source. This is the first time Thiel will be donating to Trump. The donation was first...

That is what I would like to talk to you about, FReep-a-thons. Like some others, I was unable to donate to Free Republic in second quarter this year. I had the pleasure of turning 65 and this year that meant about seven of my accounts were affected. Each of them had the potential to change anywhere from $50 to as much as $200 dollars in my monthly budget. This left me unclear as to...
