As the year end approaches many people think about donating to a worthy cause. Most people give to causes that tug at their heart strings. BBB has always advised the wise way to give is by using your head as well as your heart.
Be leery of sound alike charities; ask the charity directly if necessary items are needed right now more so than a monetary gift and be careful with online and social media appeals. Always check www.give.org for the charity’s report which includes specific information about whether they have met the BBB Standards for Charity Accountability.
