Do your research
Once you know where you want to donate, it’s time to look up for charities that move in that direction. It’s true that there are many well-established organizations that are already moving in that field, but more new NGOs are also popping up for their own reason, usually closing the gap that other organizations could not.
Make sure that you also do research on the transparency of the donations that go in and spent. The organization should also be clear regarding its taxation and whether anyone is paid during the process. This way you make sure that you know what you are donating for and actually feel good about it.
It is also wise to discuss with others regarding the organizations that you are considering. Find forums or friends who are also donating to the same charity. Keep up with the news regarding the organization.
