Donate to Charities

Donating to a worthy cause is one way to quell the feelings of helpnesses that often accompany the loss of a loved one, or the inability to help a particular person as much as we wish we could. This is because it allows us to help someone, even though we don't know whom that someone will be. Why not check out these charities to see if there are any you're interested in supporting?
