The time of year for giving

   Do you like donating to charities this time of year? While we hope our gifts make it to the intended recipients, is there a way to really know?
   You can see it all over the news this time of year - Grinch charities or lists of the best charities. These lists are based on the percentage of the donations that actually go to the groups claiming to be helped and the percentage that goes to administrative and operating costs, or even into organizers’ pockets.
   I searched around on the Internet and found some sites that can be of some help. Be sure to do a little research on your own before making a donation to any local or national charity.
