Giving to Patriotic Causes

After the grilled hot dogs and before the fireworks on Friday, you probably took a moment to reflect on all the men and women who have given their lives defending our country. Perhaps you even considered ways in which you could honor their sacrifice. And with America at war in Iraq today, you probably even thought about how you could provide assistance to injured soldiers and their families. Sadly, there are many "charities" that will use your compassion for veterans to coax you into supporting their inefficient, if not fraudulent, operations.

To help you give with confidence to military and veteran-related charities, our site includes a hot topic and an article which highlight the highest and lowest-rated of these charities.
