Christmas Donation

This year I'm splitting my donations between the US and the rest of the world.

I'm giving to Farm Aid, which helps family farmers defend themselves against the corporate giants dominating the market and advocates for truth in labeling with the FDA, among many other things. Their website is very  informative and if you were transformed by the documentary Food, Inc., as I was, this charity is for you.

According to CharityNavigator, it has three out of four stars, 75.4% of donations go directly to program expenses, and it pays it's CEO just a bit over $40,000 a year.

The other charity is, which helps create sustainable solutions to bring clean drinking water to communities around the world. For $25, you can provide one person with clean drinking water for life.

CharityNavigator gives it all four stars. 80.1% of donations go directly to program expenses and it's CEO is paid a bit over $97,000.
