For many people, these are tough times financially.
No matter how difficult things get, though, people always find a little extra to generously donate to their favorite charities.
When making donations, use caution and common sense. With the tough times comes an increase in schemes. Often these schemes involve fake charities.
Preferably, donate to groups closest to home. Think about your fire department, local Cancer organization, Red Cross, or some other local charity which would help you, your loved ones, or your neighbor if disaster occurred.
