Top Organizations and Charities for Kids
The holidays are the prime time for giving back - and what better way to do it than by supporting a kids charity? These organizations offer some of the coolest holiday programs for kids, and all of them provide money to worthwhile causes. So if you've got a few extra bucks, some volunteer time, or extra clothes and supplies laying around the house, here's where you can send them. And if we missed an organization you love working with during the holidays, please spread the word and nominate it here! - Christina Couch

When a parent goes to prison, children are frequently left behind. In the U.S. alone, more than 1.7 million children have at least one parent in incarceration, and studies show that children of inmates are up to seven times more likely to go to prison themselves. This Christian organization mobilizes individuals and church groups to provide holiday gifts to the children of inmates on their parents’ behalf. Angel Tree’s year-round programs include prison ministry, mentoring, and summer camp programs for the children of inmates.
