If I was a celebrity and had tons of money to work with, I'd pick any charity that helps abused women. Or start my own and build shelters for them, etc.

I was hoping someone would mention Heifer. I tend towards the organizations that are working on the CAUSES of poverty, rather than just the symptoms. Hence Heifer.

Oxfam http://oxfamamerica.org is another great one, espeically, their Make Trade Fair campaign

I have joined this every year the last several years. I support Meower Power, a local feral cat group. I have also belonged to the National Wildlife Federation because they look after wolves and other wildlife. I don't join PETA because from what I've seen they aren't much for dogs and cats (carnivorous hunters you know ) and those are the main animals I want to help.

If I were a celeb, I'd give all kinds of money to Africare. They are an excellent charity, all the money goes to people who need it. They are strictly nonpartisan and have great programs like health care for people who otherwise couldn't get it. If I had the money I could travel to Africa and see their programs at work!

I always give to my local food bank during the library fund drives, like now. We always have overdue books, and they mark off a dollar for each can you give. So I pay it off in cans of food.

It makes me sick to see people throw good stuff out when someone could use it. My brother and his wife were going to take a bunch of good clothes, toys and stuff to the dump and I told them to take it to the Goodwill drop off hut. They said nobody wanted that stuff, I said, you have no idea, some people have nothing. They wouldn't be bothered so I took it to the Goodwill hut myself. I also gave a cell phone they were pitching to the battered womens' shelter, they were asking for phones for victims of domestic violence.

I'm so happy to see my fellow U2 fans to be strong supporters of good causes. Yet, somehow I'm not surprised. I've donated plenty of time and/or money to several causes. Among them:

The Humane Society-I'm all about the furbaby love

The Hunger Task Force-I've donated time, money, and food to this good cause. One of my favorite book stores donates a portion of their customer purchases to the cause of the customer's choice and I chose the Hunger Task Force. I know they do great work. When my friend, Jill, left her abusive husband with two young children, she relied on the Hunger Task Force to help feed her brood.

Camp Heartland-A camp for children with Aids and HIV

The Milwaukee Women's Center-I belong to a school organization that is collecting toys and necessary toiletries to families that leave abusive situations.

And I'm looking into getting involved with a local organization that mentors at risk teenage girls to make positive choices in their lives.
