Who's ready to do a good deed? This holiday season, be grateful for what you have and help those who are in need! Donating money and goods to charity will give you peace of mind and bring you joy. It's also a fantastic way to meet and support people who believe in the same causes as you. In some countries, even a small donation could result in a week's worth of meals for a poor child or animal.
Feel inspired? Check out some great places to donate money this holiday season:
Save the Children
Founded in 1919, Save the Children is one of the oldest charitable organizations out there. They are committed to helping children overcome disease, hunger, illiteracy, and other issues. Every day, they change children's lives for the better through their innovative, evidence-based programs. The team at Save the Children provides food, medications, and money to children worldwide.
The Smithsonian Institution is the largest museum, research, and education complex in the world. Established in 1846, it's dedicated to exploring next-generation technologies, preserving culture, and sustaining biodiversity. This is the place where your kids can see the Wright Brothers’ airplane, meet Kermit the Frog, and learn American history. According to the staff, donations keep this place admission free of charge.
Friends of Animals
If you love animals, free them from cruelty and exploitation around the world. Friends of Animals has been around since 1957. Their goal is to help animals in need and protect them from domination and abuse by humans. This non-profit organization also fights against cloning, modification, and use of animals in entertainment.

Partners in Health does most of its work in Haiti, Rwanda, Liberia, and other underdeveloped countries. Their mission is to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those who can’t afford it, and provide health-care services to the poor. In 2009, the doctors who work here treated over 75,000 cholera patients.
