I am a firm believer
of giving back to the community and in helping non-profit charities.
eBay makes it easy to help organizations that matter to you and
I. We can donate with each purchase you make.
Here are a few of my
favorite charity organizations:
A Soldiers Wish
List: founded on one principle, that no service
man or woman serving America on foreign soil should feel alone or
forgotten by their countrymen

provide aid and education for families with children with cancer, and to help
fund research for a cure for cancer

their families and their loved ones with education, support, and access to
early detection screenings

mission to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and double

Purple Bunny Pan

Non-Profit Corporation dedicated to raising public awareness and funding to
support pancreatic cancer research. All fundraising proceeds are donated
directly to the Stanford University Swayze Pancreas Cancer Research Fund.
With the lowest survival rate of any major cancer, this fund supports studies
to increase our understanding of pancreas cancer and develop new therapies
and technologies that can be applied to improving diagnosis, treatment and
Southern California: to provide year-round sports training and athletic
competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with
intellectual disabilities, giving them opportunities to develop physical
fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in sharing of
gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics
athletes and the community.
Children's Research Hospital: help
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital fight childhood cancer and
find cures for children with catastrophic illnesses through research and
treatment. Children are treated without regard to a family's ability to pay.
St. Jude covers all costs not covered.
As you can see, my
favorites are those that help children, along with a few other types.

please email me and tell me a little about it and why it is your
favorite. I am always interested in getting information on
new charities and adding them to my list.
