Nonprofit Charitable Organizations To Watch In 2011
1. Jeff Gordon-The Drive To End Hunger
Actually, this nonprofit organization helps provide food and support to the elderly. However, with more than six million seniors facing the threat of hunger, it is worthwhile to share this great effort. In my view, having four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion as your spokesperson is a great way to help the ones in need! In addition, yesterday Jeff Gordon ended his 66 race win less streak by passing the talented Kyle Busch in the closing laps. Congrats Jeff Gordon on your impressive win and hopefully your win will bring more awareness to your cause! See the video on Jeff Gordon’s impressive win at Phoenix here.
2. Car Donation Charity Helping Kids
Since we are on the topic of cars, how about the idea of donating your car to help children? That’s right, you can now donate your vehicle to help children in need. CarsToHelpKids is committed to supporting children’s hospitals, mentoring and educational programs, and funding various outreach initiatives that meet the needs of children in our communities. All vehicle donations are tax deductible. Therefore you can get rid of your old car or truck quickly and for free. Best of all, you can get more money back on your 2011 tax return and help children at the same time. This is truly a great new way of helping nonprofit organizations help children.
3. Big Brothers Big Sisters of America
While this organization is not new, it is a great foundation that is focusing on helping children through the ages of 6-18. It is a great cause that everyone should consider when thinking about helping a child in need. Donations is not the only way you can help Big Brothers Big Sisters reach their fund raising goals. You can also volunteer your time by mentoring and coaching young people!
4. Boys & Girls Club
The Boys & Girls Club began in 1860 as an alternative for boys that were roaming the streets. The Boys & Girls club is located in most locations across the United States. They offer youth programs and activities every day. They also have special programs such as:
5. Make A Wish Foundation
Since 1980, the Make A Wish Foundation has been giving hope, strength and joy to children with life-threatening medication conditions. It is a organization that is well known across the country for putting a smile on the face of children that have little to smile about.
