As we celebrate our nation’s independence, it’s important to remember the service men and women and their families who sacrificed to give us our home and our freedom. It’s hard to choose just one charity that serves veterans, as there are many wonderful organizations out there who do a variety of essential work for veterans. However, among the good, there are also some that do not do what they claim. Consider this as you decide how to give back.
Sandra Block of USA Today covers a lot of tips for researching a veterans charity before you donate to avoid scams: http://www.usatoday.com/money/perfi/…ies/51113928/1
Here are some of our favorite veteran’s charities, all of which received a four-star rating from charitynavigator.org:
Hope for the Warriors
Homes for our Troops
Canine Companions for Independence
God Bless the USA, and God Bless our brave veterans!
A special thanks to my friends and family who have bravely served this great country of ours.
