The Charity for Haiti You Need to Know About

It’s so unfortunate that many of us feel trepidation when wanting to contribute to a charity or non-profit foundation.  But the truth is, especially in this modern age of corporate cultures, anyone looking to donate may be worried about where their money is going, if it is going to be used in the way that is desired or at the very least is not going to line the pockets of a corrupt system.  The Marie Georges Foundation is a breath of fresh air and much-need salvation in the dubious world of charitable giving.

A Successful Day for Sweat NYC for Japan
