I have never met her but learned of her through a client of ours that her mother worked for.  She is a young girl who is terminal with cancer.  Her name is Megan and her story is heart breaking.  Please take a moment to visit her website and consider a donation to help her mother pay for her medical bills.

Go to CharityNavigator.org and find out the full scope on the charity you are thinking of donating to.  They have a large database of charities and can tell you how much of every dollar you give is actually put to use vs. getting eaten up by management and fund raising expenses.  They rank each charity and provide a ton of useful data.  You can even use them as a charity search engine to find new charities to donate to.  Give it a try.
