1. I don't have the spare cash to donate.

2. When I donate things instead of money, I know that item will actually help someone instead of line someone else's pocket without actually helping the needy.

Generally an animal or environmental charity. But not just any one, one that pays there CEO modestly and preferably is local. Also I like ones that get into the real issues with the environment such as encouraging vegetarianism, discouraging use of SUVs, and encouraging public transit, walking, and biking.

Exactly. They made a poll for all of the prominent general charities people are aware of... Who on Swagbucks can afford to donate to all? Yet you all are bit chi ng over 18% choosing "animals over children". First of all, I can almost guarantee they are not... If no person ever donated to animal welfare then what? Same with children in need. Our planet is overpopulated with both animals and humans, that is the only reason there are charities to begin with. All inhabitants of this planet are overpopulating the Earth and that's causing a problem. That's why we are eventually going to ruin the planet, that is why we euthanize animals, and that is why children AND adults (who actually can't always care for themselves as some of you say) are starving and without jobs. You all are arguing over nothing. We need a balance to keep the planet in balance. For those of you who are freaking out about some of the people choosing Animal Welfare, are being ridiculous.

Well, I wasn't necessarily talking about poor people and only "puppies and kittens". Plenty of NOT welfare people are having children... they are contributing to the overpopulation of humans. There are billions of us... babies are born all the time. Doesn't matter if your broke or rich. As for the animals, I meant animals. Not just dogs and cats. The lack of spaying and neutering of your pets isn't the deal here and is not the only problem lol. That's just people joining the bandwagon of saying "Gee animals die all the time, let's spay and neuter them all!". Might as well start sterilizing boys and girls as they are born because there are too many of us as well and we always die every day and get killed every day... My point was more broad, as a whole, there are too many species on the planet to fulfill the needs of them all.

Whatever happened to "someone has to do it". Do you hate the guy who picks up your trash every Thursday because he didn't become a doctor or a missionary who travels to poor countries to feed their population? Come on now. We are all going to die at some point. Why would we waste our time saying "everyone needs to donate to this instead of that" when there needs to be a balance. If no one donated to children in need, our species would probably die off quicker. If no one donated to animal welfare, they would die off quicker as a whole

As far as the military goes, the charity money goes to the families and often the service members themselves (for things like body armor, silly string for finding booby traps, beef jerky), not to go buy more tanks, guns, and planes.

Many military personnel come back with severe physical and psychological wounds as well, so there is a valid need.

Over the years I've probably donated to all of these causes from time to time, Disabled Veterans, because my late husband was a disabled vet, Humane Society,because of my love of animals,needy children etc, just to name a few. BUT, I don't donate like I used too because I'm on fixed income now,SS and pension. I can't a ford to donate any more and I get a little fed up with their phone calls asking for money(they won't take no for an answer), then there is all those address labels that are sent to you expecting a donation in return. I have enough address labels to last me a life time or wall paper my basement walls. I find it is probably best donate locally, at least that is helping those in need in your own area.

Sometimes I feel weird about the fact that I'd rather help animals than people. I mean, I know that I LIKE animals more than people (they're not judgmental-usually lol-and they'll love you even if you make a mistake etc.) but as for physically helping them? I volunteer at an animal shelter. I could volunteer at the local food pantry but I don't because I'm not interested. It occasionally makes me feel like I'm a weird person or even a bad one.

The people that assume I support PETA because I would donate to animal welfare/rights organizations are just gross. PETA is a horrible organization that use shock tactics, sexism, racism, and body-shaming in their advertisements, and also kill most of the animals put into their care. I'm vegan and do NOT support them. I would rather donate to organizations that help animals by actually rescuing them. The only good thing about PETA is that they have the most complete lists of what food items do not contain animal products on their website, lol!

Assuming that because I'm vegan I must support PETA is like saying that all Christians must support the Westboro Baptist church.

Next on my list of charities to donate to would be children in need, and I want to adopt a child when I'm older and financially stable.

FYI, the wait list to adopt a human infant usually takes a few years (probably because most "unwanted" children are aborted... not that birth moms consider their children unwanted, many just don't have the resources or skills to raise children), which is why so many folks resort to international adoption.

*PLEASE* consider adopting a child in foster care. They aren't all "broken" and most are in there through no fault of their own. If they're stuck in "the system" and shipped from home to home, it DOES damage them psychologically.

I'm glad that you don't support PeTA. Most vegans I know don't support them, either, due to hypocrisy. PeTA uses scare tactics to "convert" people to vegetarianism and then to "convert" them to veganism and hide the facts about the health risks/supplementation needs (such as B-12, which can cause dementia if one's chronically low) and back in the day, there were trans

Well, actually, the wait list is so long because there are more unwanted children in the system than there are foster families/adoptive families that want these kids. Not because they're being aborted.

But yeah, I am definitely considering being a foster parent anyway. I'm young and in high school so I can't do it now, obviously, but it's very important. There are many foster parents/families that do it for the money the government gives them for housing these kids, without caring about them, and even abusing them. I won't be one of those disgusting people.

I know that we could only pick one but without the military we wouldn't be free to choose to give donations to other charities. I give donations to animal welfare orgs., children in need, research for medical purposes especially for children and cancer research since I've lost all my grandparents, my mother, & many family & friends to it, and even to organizations to plant trees. I think we neglect our military and veterans too much and should honor & support them more because they are leaving their families to fight for our freedom, risking their lives every day for us, and so many have laid down their lives so we can be free and continue to live in the best country in the world.

I do not and will not give to charities again.

I was a regular donator but have learned so much about the "charity industry." It is ugly.

When 80% of donations to the Susan Komen Foundation go to administrators' salaries, costs (dinners, contracts with "partner" organizations (who runs those???) and other non-cancer victim budget items, it is easy to decide to not donate.

Many of the management of these groups gets paid very handsomely for the amount of work they do.

I just finished reading the book Richism. It was interesting because in the book they mentioned a guy whose last name I think is Berber who has many millions and came to the same realizations about the big charities. Instead he went to Ethiopia and asked the people there what they wanted and realized it wasn't what they though-that they actually wanted wells. So he hired people to do this and did it in a much more stream line way. He also refused to accept 300 page reports as they are a waste of money and a waste of his time.

I think this is a much better idea than donating to these mega charities just to go and do something yourself.

You should look for charities that have low to no overhead/administrative costs. There are a lot. And simply because a charity has paid employees (which is completely legal and justified for the work they provide), doesn't mean that they don't do A LOT of good. To maintain their status as a charity, they have to apply a certain percentage to actual charitable work, and if their administrative costs become too high, they can lose that charitable status. So, on average, money you donate is much more likely to go toward the cause and not the people behind it. But again, research the charities carefully, and if you don't approve of people being compensated for devoting their life to a cause, then simply find charities that don't have administrative costs, and give 100% of what they receive. :)

I agree. Instead of sending money to a designated charity, my husband and I give to things local such as when there is a family in need due to fire or some other need. When you can go and purchase something tangible and literally clothing on their backs and food on their plates and you know that your dollars aren't being wasted in administrative fees it feels so much better.

That's a great point you make. You can still give to charities this way, however. Ask what they need. A homeless shelter may need toothbrushes. A refugee organization always needs the basics for an apartment (dishes, pots and pans, cheap bedding sets), It's called in-kind donations instead of cash donations, and it is just as helpful -- and that way you know exactly what you're providing!

There are more laws protecting animals than children, in a way. If you hit a child, few will say anything and if they do, you won't get in trouble because you can claim it's discipline. If you hit an animal and get reported, you can get charged with animal abuse and have the animal taken away. I saw someone kick a dog and have it taken away, but when I reported them smacking their child, it was "oh well."The child grew up to be a punk, but nobody blamed the parents. It's pretty disgusting when I think about it.

What a bunch of judgmental people!! Who are any of you to tell someone where to donate THEIR money?? How is it a bad thing to donate to ANY of these causes?? Ignorance is in full force in here tonight. Good job turning a light hearted poll question into a playground fight. Get over yourselves!!

Equal rights for LGBTQ individuals & families is close to my heart. I'd support non-profits who work toward this goal.

arguing over the reasons why you should choose one charity over another are pointless. we are all affected by different things in life that lead us to support one thing over another. i hope that each and every person arguing has actually contributed to the charity they feel deserves it the most. luckily there are many people in this world with enough different interests to keep all these charities going...

I'm surprised and pretty disappointed that more people would rather choose to help animals rather than veterans, homeless, or other people in need.

I'm disappointed that people are judging others over what charity they want to donate to. Donating to any of these causes is an admirable thing to do. How can you judge a charitable heart??? Where and how much someone donates to a worthy cause is up to them. It's their money. NOT yours or anyone else's here. Pretty ignorant to judge those who choose to help animals.

People can take care of themselves..animals cannot, they only have us to care for them. That's why.

Isn't that called a pet. Animals take care of themselves in the wild. They feed on anything they can hunt/find. Ex: Lions

Animals need us to care for them right? I wonder how animals survived before humans existed.

I live in a major city. Some people are not able to take care of themselves. They are as helpless as any other animal.

Animals have been taking care of themselves since the beginning of time.

And a human child can take care of his or herself? Really? If it was between an animal's life and a child's, you would seriously choose an animal of a human being?

That is picking a different side. Now children have schools and government offices to look out for them for animals not so much. Same with so many shelters that "humanely Euthanize" them. Who are they to decide who lives another day and who dies? If they are suffering that is different, but just to do it because no one wants them or they aren't perfect is wrong. Just my opinion that is all.

Some animals wind up in shelters because their owners need to move and the landlords either don't allow animals or only allow small animals or require a monstrous, non-refundable pet deposit... or the owner gets sick or are otherwise unable to properly care for the animal. It usually isn't because the animal "isn't perfect", though it annoys me when a parent will get their child(ren) a puppy or kitten to teach responsibility, the child(ren) get(s) tired of it or neglects the animal and the parent takes the pet to a shelter... or a dog isn't properly obedience trained and is sent to a shelter because it's a "bad dog" because it was being left alone all day and ignored at home and became destructive out of boredom.

That being sad, I'll choose a human over an animal any day of the week.

I'm more likely to donate to charities that help victims/survivors of domestic violence; those that directly help homeless people; and those that directly help victims of natural disasters.
