Charities I Won’t Be Donating To This Year

As we near the New Year, it’s time to think about money. Not what you earned during the year, or what you spent during the holidays, but on the charitable contributions you made. Those donations you made to non-profit organizations around the world not only assist those is dire need, but also your contributions assist your bottom line when it comes to taxes, deductions and write-offs.

I do recommend donating when and where you can, even if it is a few dollars as these organizations are in desperate need during these tight economic times. They need all of the help they can get.

But, there are a few organizations that I WON’T be donating to…ever!

I know, joking about charities lacks a bit of taste…but I just couldn’t resist. Obviously, these are not actual charities…but just what if they were!

  • American Blue Cross 1 of 5
    American Blue Cross
    Donate to our failing healthcare industry. All of your money gets sucked away into management, and insuring those who don't need insurance while ignoring those that do.

  • Doctors without Scruples 2 of 5
    Doctors without Scruples
    Led by the infamous Conrad Murray, the doctor who so deftly assisted Michael Jackson in a healthy life. These doctors, plastic surgeons and pharmaceutical experts get richer while people get sicker, die, become disfigured or simply go crazy.

  • American Canker Society 3 of 5
    American Canker Society
    Stopping canker sores through viral efforts. This is one donation that just keeps on giving.

  • Guns for Tots 4 of 5
    Guns for Tots
    Putting firearms in the tiny hands that need them. Sandbox bullying is now a thing of the past.

  • Divided Way 5 of 5
    Divided Way
    This organization agrees to disagree. Your donation will be hopelessly lost in red tape.

Ok, all humor aside, you really should consider donating some time or money to a real organization that is helping society, animals or the world. Without the kindness and support of people, our world would be a far worse place than it is now.
