    Women have been subjected to violence throughout history, and although this horrendous action is condemned by all societies, it is still prevalent in many, especially the third world countries. In a survey carried out by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2005, out of the ten counties surveyed, more than 50 percent of women in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Peru and Tanzania reported having been subjected to physical or sexual violence by intimate partners, with figures reaching a staggering 71 percent in rural Ethiopia. Only in Japan, less than 20 percent of women report incidents of domestic violence.

    I learned about the Free Rice one quite a while ago. I played it forever and loved learning and giving grains of rice. I cannot remember how much I won, donated but it is great fun. Somewhere I saw a gentleman who had wrote a program that would play it for you. I don't know if that is fair or not I never downloaded it or not.

    Hey, such a great list! And I love Freerice. But wanted to point out that Freeflour is an attempt to copy Freerice, and so far I can't find out who they actually give the donations too (they don't actually say … let me know if I'm wrong, but I've looked and can't find any info).

    Whereas I know for fact that 100% donations from Freerice go the world food programme: http://www.wfp.org/how-to-help/individuals/freeri

    I know that Free Flour is a new website, so I'm not exactly sure what charities, but I doubt it's just an attempt to copy what Free Rice does.

    I tried to use Google, but I think because it's so new not much is out there about it.

    Anyways, thanks for reading.

    I am picky when giving to charites but I do give all of my old stuff that is in good order to the good will or salvation army. Also I try to give to my friends and relatives who need it when I can. I have learned over the years that you cannot trust a lot of the charities you do see because they take most of the money for themselves. Have you seen the latest that 1 billion people are starving? The more money and food you give a population the more people are born to eat that food. I know that sounds harsh but is true. I hope you don’t hate me. I learned that in biology class in college. It is true. Look at mexico. When we helped them (America) the population grew to where the money and food was, not the other way around. I hate that that happens. What needs to happen is get clean water. Like that britta water packet that cleans dirty water. It is 50 cents a packet and cleans shoot i don't rem but it takes all the dirt out of the water and settles it to the bottom so that you can drink what is on top. That would b e so much better than giving money. Drought and climate change and population explosion is the biggest problems we face.

      Well, you have a nice list there of various charities. I never heard of Race for the oceans. That is important cause because of the BP oil spill. I prefer to donate my clothes to Goodwill and Salvation Army. I donate my old furniture to Easter Seals. I give my money to church when I can and Veterans. It makes me feel so good to help others. My advice is to think about what you care about the most. I am sure there is a reputable charity you can donate to!

    We know that most of non profit groups rely on volunteers and usually lack funds for their online presence. Only a few can afford to hire a designer to do a website for their organization.

    Terapad recently launched new sets of website templates for charity groups to setup their online presence. Only few charity groups have good websites and we believe that the charity website designs available can give them what they need with a nice design too.

    I’m really glad to read this post because it’s very informative and I truly agree with your list. By the way, I also want to add http://www.wheelsforwishes.org because of their commitment to grants wishes to children facing a life-threatening or critical illness and for me that’s really awesome.

    Great post! we looked at some of these when we designed our site. I would like to recommend http://www.dollarpermonth.org cool site with a pretty cool concept. We set this up so that members vote for their favorite charities. DPM posts information about the charities to help you evaluate each and make a decision. DPM has already carefully evaluated all three charities to ensure the charities are reputable, legitimate, making a positive impact on the world and that the vast majority of donations will go directly to the cause. After reviewing the charities, you vote for your favorite charity. The winning charity receives 50% of the community donations, the 2nd charity receives 30%, and the 3rd charity receives 20% – no charity loses. To date we have raised about 50k for charity
