It's a foundation that buys tickets home for GIs stationed abroad when they get leave so they can spend the holidays with their families.
i agree with this one. Especially for when the members of the military get shipped back to the U.S. and are stuck in say texas when they live in CA

I think a children's charity is the way to go, or children's hospital in your area. The hero fund and let's bring them home sound good, but they look like charities that focus on the American military and not everyone is American, so I think children's charities are more neutral.

Yeah, I agree with you there..

This is an international military forum, so I think it will be wrong to only focus on an American charity, for now..
But I have planned to donate to a new charity each month, so it's not impossible that one of the months donations can go to something American too.

I'm looking into a couple of children charities now.
The donation will take place around the 12th March.

I have (almost) decided that the donations in March will go to the International Comitee of the Red Cross' "Children in War" program.

The Red Cross are doing great and important work all over the world, so I think they deserves this month donation.
(Unless some of you has another (better) suggestion)

135 US$ donated to the International Comitee of the Red Cross' "Children in War" program today.

It feels so good to support such a good cause..
Giving children guns and uniforms and sending them off to war instead of having them wandering around alone on the streets, and getting bored..
(That's what the ICRC is doing, right.. ?? )

Any suggestions for the April donation??
(and NO Redneck, "Adopt a Dolphin" is NOT a good cause.. )

Not a children's charity...But the Veterans Party of America could use all the push it can get right now. Coming soon to all 50 states.

Hi Janie, and welcome to the forum.

A Veterans charity could be interesting in the future, but I don't want to focus on an America only charity right now, since this is an international site and forum.
