Charity begins at home, but in our Global Economy we must recognize we are also a Global Community. Here are a few causes local to Sedona and the Verde Valley, the Grand Canyon State of Arizona, America and the world. Whether donating money or giving of our time, caring renews our spirits. Each of us have causes that speak to their hearts, and these are a few of mine.
If you ever wonder how much good your donation does (as opposed to how much is eaten up by the administrative costs of bloated organizations), visit Charity Navigator, an amazing resource for information on American charities. One note: just because a charity has not been evaluated by them does not mean they are not worthy - it may mean simply that they are too new or perhaps just too small/local.
