    I was curious as to what cause, organization, and/or charity everybody likes to donate their time/money to.

    A couple of weeks ago I helped out at the Special Olympics, which was in town

    Otherwise, I'm a full-fledged environmentalist

    Back when I wasn't working, I used to do it nearly every night of the week.

    Free the Children (against child labour)
    Out of the Cold (feeding the homeless)
    Leading to Reading (tutoring children)

    Also, when I actually have some money to spend, I'd really like to sponsor a child.

    I definitly have a soft spot for a lot of the AIDS research organizations and if someday I have the money I want to start some sort of an organization to deal with the issues that come from bullying in schools.

    Amnesty International does such great work and always has so I support them. I also try to give time or money to anyone who tries to fight human trafficking/child prostitution.

    I've been a member of AI for about a year now and I love it. Since I joined I've been exposed to a lot more things I had no idea about and now I inform everyone I know about those issues.

    Anyways here are mine:
    Amnesty International
    Relay 4 Life (a 24-hour event to raise a boatload of money for cancer research)
    CPR (Cat Purebred Rescue-we show and breed cats and know the importance of having animals around)
