    Make-A-Wish Foundation.

    it does good things. i'm not sure if they have chapters in all regions, but they are pretty active in the northeast. to me, there is no purer definition of charity than helping a sick kid and their family forget about their illness for a little while.

    Cool. I donate my frequent flyer miles to Make A Wish. It gives you that great feeling inside to help another kid that like has the same illness as you.
