“Together we are powerful, inspiring & impossible to ignore.”
I wanted to research the charities that are most worthy of donations, where money given actually reaches the people in need and is not used for other purposes. It was fantastic to discover that there are expert groups out there that do just that!
If you are interested in learning more about this, here is an article written by Dylan Matthews from vox.com and below is some more specific information if you are interested in giving.
Recently I was contacted by Hannah Cox from CreditCards.com (US) and made aware of the option to donate air miles & points to charity. There is a great article here explaining how to do this, thanks Hannah!
