I am looking to Donate some Money for good causes. And want to know
which Organization(s) do you think are doing the best Work now a days,
worthy of most support. FYI, I have close to $50,000 to Donate.
I like to Donate to Organization that spend at least 75% of the money
they collect on their Charitable purposes rather than on expenses. And
they should be located in Europe US, Canada or Australia. Said
Organization(s) can be dedicated to Animal or Human welfare.
Yes I agree, PETA is a great org to Donate too.
I also think this Anoox is another great org to Donate too, since they are the only non-profit search engine & social network that is enabling US people and small businesses on Main street unlike Google, Facebook, etc. Big Wall Street search engine & social net that are empowering Wall Street at the great determinent to the Main Street as best evident by election of Trump in USA that has done everything for Wall Street and Nothing for the People :(
PETA is cool but also a little misguided. Trump is a clown and a parasite I live in the usa but did not vote for him. If people were actually smart which they are not every one would donate their money to me and I would build a fleet of solar ships to clean that pile of plastic up in the ocean before it wipes out all life on this planet. the trickle down effect of that plastic will eventually kill every thing.
bls69, yes glad to hear that. And you are lucky you live in Canada than in USA which is infected by a right-wing Wall Street Media cabal, resulting in:
1- War after War after War
2- lacking most basic of Social services such as Universal Socialized Healthcare
3- Insane Gun laws resulting in 1 Mass shooting after another
resulting in Fake Obama Democrats whom are just as responsible as Republicans for these failures of USA and of course resulting in Trump Republican lunatics :(
I agree with Sarah. She has nailed it on the head. And if you really want to do something about these problems she listed, Donated to Anoox that as only non-Wall Street based Search engine & Social net, unlike the Wall Street tools of Google Facebook Linkedin, etc. is allowing us to the get the Truth out about these problems so we can do something about it.
LOl then your both stupid, time to listen to scientists. when they tell you plastic is being absorbed by micro organisms the reason why is that , that is what is happening. if you do not believe in pollution, climate change, or any thing else the environmental scientists say then really the world will be a better place once you and the rest of the ignorant humans die off. Oh BTW Obama was a screw up, his natural gas fracking plan pumped poisonous chemicals into ground water.
No argument about "Obama was a screw up". To be exact he was a tool of Wall Street Billionaire Cabal, the Military Industrial Complex & Israel lobby. Trump is the same, that is he is controlled by same Triad, only difference being that he says the most lunatic insane things:
"Such as Build a Wall with Mexico and Mexico will pay for it", so that we do not talk about the real problems of USA from catastrophic state of Healthcare, to 1 Mass shooting after another, etc. etc.
Obama was more then just a tool he was " black Jesus " King of the ignorant. In that way [ king of the ignorant ] trump is the same as Obama. how ever obama was elected by the people and trump is a autocrat elected by Russian propaganda and the electoral collage. Hillary Clinton was voted president. but back to the subject, micro beads and other plastic is being eaten by organisms that are eaten by fish and then people eat the fish, guess where the plastic micro beads are ending up ?
Maybe contact a few organizations you're fond of to see where your money would go? Off hand, I suggest food banks and animal shelters. There are some really helpful food banks in every city in the World that could use some help.
I truly commend you on your efforts!
Sarah, beside Anoox being a not-for-profit Internet company that we should all support with our Donations, because it is dedicated to putting the value of the Internet in the hand of us on Main Street and not Wall Street as is the case with Google, Facebook, etc., let me state that on the same vane we should all Donate to Mozilla and Linux Foundation. They are all pretty much keeping us all from being slaves to Wall Street.
I think letting organisations know you wish to donate a vast amount and ask for a detailed look at their spends would be a good idea it should be public record anyway and that way you will have an insight to what goes where and what does not in each organisation, also with such a vast amount I'm sure your privaliged to be shown how your money will work in said org or charity. I hope this helps and I tip my hat to you sir
We are all over the place here in uk with infighting in gov over wether to stay in Europe as a country we donate a lot but I have no knowledge on their spends the gov here does match pound for pound in donations and there's also tax relief for charities domestic and overseas sorry I don't know more. Thank you
Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International is one of the best organizations to donate to. She has saved More Gorillas in Wild than any one else and is totally dedicated to her cause. Check out: http://gorillafund.org/
LOL wow, you guys are horrible. the RSPCA is Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. they are located in England and Wales that promotes animal welfare. in 2012, the RSPCA investigated 150,833 cruelty complaints.
I gotta say Im a bit insulted you would say fly by night to me when I know more about all of this then any of you guys do. back in 2010 before a plated lizard was common I had a large one dropped off with me, and no one in any of the fancy groups could identify it.
and I had people who bragged about all of their expiration try to tell me it was a skink, even mr know it all him self from the new England herpalogical society. But you see I have a high IQ and knew when I looked at it ,, it did not look like what they said it was, so who does a guy with a 160 iq go to for answers ? Well if you think who would know what a unknown lizard is ? well for 1 a safari company, you know the people you hire to go into the wild and catch them so i contacted ...
West Midland Safari & Leisure Park -- Hi Greg,
You do have a Gerrhosarus sp (Plated lizard) and it could be one of four looking at your pictures. My opinion would be that you have Gerrhosaurus validus which is the giant plated lizard. The others being G.major (rough plated), G.flavigularis ( yellow throated) and G. nigrolineatus (black lined). Hoped this has helped.

The One I am at is the best as 100% goes to the animals, being it is 100% volunteer operated. Last year the posted animal care costs were reported at $35,000 - $40,000. Sorry I do not know the exact number off the top of my head. Our expenses are Veterinary Care, Food costs for the animals, building, maintaining and repairing shelters [ example, it costs $100 for the materials for a dog house for a dog ] as well as purchase of all of their equipment they need, weather that be heaters and heating controls, humidity control, etc.
No mater what it is it is always for the pets as no one here receives any compensation or a pay check.
We have animals that have to wait to go to the vet for surgery's due to the cost of the surgery being $5,000 to $10,000. We receive vary small donations when they do get made. So that money being donated to us would mean Animals getting surgery's, upgrades and improvements to housing and much much more.
The Reptile and Amphibian Refuge Center, Christian Rescue service, Information and Referrals. Located in Massachusetts and servicing the east coast of the usa.
We help all Pets and Wild Life, provide free rescues, information and referrals.
And much more, we help all people with all animal concerns from help their is a owl with a broken wing in our back yard to help skunks moved in under our porch. and even Hi, we found a deer swimming in our pool what should we do? http://rnarc.info/
Well last year we might of gotten $200 in donations. and as far as fly by night goes if you want you can contact our federal business attorney.
If you were to make a donation I was going to contact her anyways to figure out the best way to process the transaction as I have directly run into scammers who say sure we will donate 10,000 which in the end turns out to be a fake check scam to get your account information, when you deposit it.
Zard, you have gotten only "$200 in donations" for last year!
I am sorry, but that does not sound like a real serious organization for me to support with my Donation. Not that you are not a serious person, but just that level of founding obviously does not result in an org that can do much.
LOL yes due to a lack of support from people such as your self,
But that's fine I just laugh when people call the dog catcher for help with a snake and the city tells them to call me and I have to tell them due to a lack of donations it is $250 to go help with the snake or any other animal.
And actually we help more then the local animal control or did until it cost me 40K last year. now I am done helping for free, you people have to pay your own way or suffer the consequences of your actions
Man you need to really work on your People skills. Certainly in dealing with Donors. That is it is not my fault, that you have raised only $200 in Donations for last year. But it is your own fault. Just as it is not my doing that SPCA has raised $200Mill in Donations last year. So you just need to worry and focus on giving People (Donors) reasons to donate to your work. Like start by having a very info rich Web site explaining why people should Donate to your Org.
yeah that web site costs money since you do not get it. and the people who made it for them get big bucks so you think your helping but your really not. or not like you think you are wake up and look at how much money they spend on what.besides your just like the rest sure you brag about having money to donate but as soon as someone says well their is a animal who needs surgery you get 20 excuses to not donate. kinda makes me think your all full of it know what I mean ?
All I ever hear is excuses kind of getts old, and it is like people do not use their brains at all, you get sucked in by a big flashy web site not even thinking gee how much did they pay for that ? 10 - 20 grand because that is how much those company's are talking who make them with the marketing and such. so yeah if you want to be sucked in by big lights like the rest of the bugs fine, but truth be told your throwing your money away so a lot of people can get a nice income off it.
and quite frankly i am suck of talk and excuses, its just all bla bla bla I have money some one pay attn to me and oh i like to throw my money at a place pays out 500k a year in expenses like advertising, web sites and employee pay checks none of which goes to help animal one. so yeah kind of sick of people with money being such morons I mean really, how can you have so much money and be so stupid has never added up to me. see and if you were a real doner you might of said well if i donate and
pet is supposed to go in for a surgery how do i know he really did and i could of had you call the vca hospital directly and given them permission to tel you about that animals care etc. but that is not how you act you act more like your just seeking attn and recognition for saying your going to donate money not like you really care about helping. so yeah. i have had enough of that non sense to last me a life time thanks. see talk is cheap and your all full of talk. and no action.
where as I have done this job since 2009 with no breaks, no vacation, 24/7/365 see now that is dedication big difference between that and talk. Since for the most part I only hear from idiots and mouth flappers. yes idiots, who calls a reptile rescue service and says I need to find a home for my cat will you take him in ? so i direct them to the cat shelter why because a cat is not a reptile. I could go on but I am sure you get the point.
