And yes, I mean it in both the old-fashioned “inspiring awe” and the modern “dude that is so cool that you’re doing that” way. Listed below are a couple of charities I believe in completely. They are all run by people who if you scratch them will bleed dedication, they act responsibly with money, and they all deal with issues that have personally touched my life in some way or another. (And it goes without saying that they’re worthwhile causes, eh?)
So if you have some money kicking around that you don’t know what to do with, these would all be good places to put it.
