Charities & Causes

Over the years I’ve worked for, with and contributed to many different causes. Here are links to some which embody the true spirit of giving, learning, strength of character, commons sense, and/or respect for others and what I think should be the answer when each of us is asked our race: human.

First off... If you’re going to contribute to a cause, you should know how much of the money you donate actually goes to help, and how much is eaten up by “administrative” costs. Here’s the place to check out the folks who want YOUR money:
