If you could donate to charity...
Let's say you're on a TV game show and could earn anywhere from 5 to 7 figures, to what charity would you donate it to?

I think I'd go with children.

Ahh yes, the children charity. The most ambiguous and far reaching of them all.

And what's this "if you could" bullshit? I wasn't aware you had to be a millionaire to donate.

ErikLensherr 11-19-2012 08:24 PM

Probably awareness. Because people need to know.

I'd keep it and use it to build my own personal wealth and influence, which would one day allow me to do something more meaningful than giving to a charity.

Cancer Research.

If you can split the money between charities then it would go between cancer research & autism research. A clean 50/50. If only one, then, I guess probably an autism research/awareness charity.

Mexican Marijuana Research! DUH!

I honestly don't know. With that money I'd divide it between several, but not too many to give them large amounts. I'd imagine giving one donation one million is more effective than giving smaller amounts to lots of organisations. I'll have to look into this more.

Homeless then Science.

ThrashUnleashed 11-19-2012 09:38 PM

Heart and Stroke, Greenpeace, David Suzuki Foundation, Sea Shepard, or Free the Children.
I already donated like $400 to FtC last year though, so probably one of the others.

OldRocker 11-19-2012 09:40 PM

I'd donate all the money to my pocket. :D
