Recently, I saw a quick blip and noted the organization to come and follow up. The organization is Helping The Home Front. They help military families. This is a great cause and is backed by a company I trust, CBN Ministries. The reason I trust them is because 85% of the funds they raise go to their cause, which is quite a bit compared to many other charities.
Back to Helping The Home Front, what caught my eye is that they tell many stories of military families they help, what they do. Not only do they spend their own money to help people, they hook up businesses that are willing to donate product, time, labor etc to help too. To me this is a great use of resources.
What They Do:
CBN has launched a new initiative to help active duty military families. They are coming alongside local churches by providing financial assistance to help congregations meet the needs of their military families. They aid churches in helping these families:
- Repair their homes and cars
- Replace broken appliances
- Purchase new mattresses
- Help with overdue mortgages
- Pay off medical bills
Many times I want to donate to a cause and don’t know where to start. I’m hoping that opening up about the different charities YOU will find the perfect fit for you. Please, please, please don’t make your donation until you check the Charity out. I use Charity Navigator and I always check a charity out before I bring them to my blog.
