Look at the study of “America’s Worst Charities” and notice how many are associating themselves with public safety. Police, Fire and EMS along with veterans affairs seem to be a favorite. Associating with law enforcement, fire service and the military seem to help legitimize the business of ask for your money.

Do your research if you are inclined to give to a charity. There are several websites and organizations that track charities and offer a report card on their giving back to the actual people in need or the operation of their advertised programs. If you are going to donate to any non-profit, please the group that solicits your donation before you give.
