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

Toys last a season or two; an education lasts a lifetime. DonorsChoose.org allows teachers to post the projects they’re working on in classrooms throughout the country, while individuals (that’s you) can donate to the ones they feel make the most difference. Projects range from frog dissection labs for middle-school students in inner-city Connecticut to initiatives that teach math through music for kindergarteners in Washington state. Once projects have been funded, kids post photos and teachers send hand-written thank-you letters to donors. This organization is a great pick for kids who are interested in helping out and want to see how their efforts affect other children like them.
