Charitable Organizations

weather: cloudy

As you may or may not know (or know and don't care =) I am a Software QA Analyst. I am also a customer of my own Work and I'd like to get more real world experience using the system that my team is working on.

Our system sends funds globally and I am looking for worthwhile, reputable charitable organizations to randomly wire donations to.

I don't guarantee a donation. I'm gathering a list that I can randomly pick from. This is my own initiative; I'm spending my own money. Work is not funding any of this.

Please comment and recommend some.

Let me know what their mission is and where they are in the world. Preferably, they'd have a website with information and complete bank account information available for me to just copy whenever I need it.

I'm a black belt at googling so I could find them myself, but I thought I'd ask here to see if there are any near and dear to you, particularly any that are smaller, lesser known but worthwhile causes that don't get the attention that they maybe deserve.

It would also be interesting to me to donate to charitable organizations in different countries around the world. I can send any currency as long as they have a bank account that will take it. If it has an ISO-4217 Currency Code, I can send it. =)

Thanks! =)
