The holidays may be over, but that doesn’t mean the spirit of giving has to be. A popular phrase that you may hear from charities is “charity begins at home.” However, given the country we live in which is full of immigrants, many Americans feel that we should help other countries. There are several charities to donate to that will help people all over the world. These charities help do pretty much anything you can think of that could help people--whether it’s helping food production, developing clean water sources, managing the environment, and building schools or houses, all of the funds will help others.
Some of the larger foundations that help poverty stricken countries in need are: one percent, Americare, ANERA, and Africare.
