Giving

The King will reply, "I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."

A while back I posted a poll with several ideas for LJ posts that I had rolling around in my head, to see which my flist would most prefer to read. The topic of this post received the second-highest number of votes, and I think it an appropriate topic to bring up now, as we are entering the time of year when charitable giving is often on people's minds. Also, in hard times it's more important than ever to remember those who are in need—even if it's also more of a sacrifice to give.

Below is a brief description of three charitable organizations that I support and believe are worthy.

Of course, these are just a few of the organizations that do excellent charitable work. I hope you will consider carefully what you can do to help those in the world who are less fortunate.
