Apart from MS, of course. smile

My favorite NGO is Sea Shepherd. They're pretty controversial, but I like best how they act in trying to protect the world's oceans. I haven't had the chance to volunteer in any of their campaigns yet (and I really want to), but I've made donations a number of times and I felt it left me with a sense of empowerment, of making a difference, of purpose and meaning.

Anybody have similar experiences?

I donate to Border Angels, an organization that provides food and clothing to undocumented immigrants at the U.S.-Mexico border.

I've also been a long time donator to RAINN (Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network), even more so after experiencing firsthand how helpful the organization is.

this is the charity we usually promote and support.


"Vancouver Adapted Music Society supports and promotes musicians with physical disabilities in the Metro Vancouver area.

We operate Western Canada's only fully-accessible recording studio, have our own choir, and run programs for people with a wide range of musical abilities
