2. Doctors without Borders
3. Peace Corps
4. Giving amputated people man made legs, arms etc.

2. Any pay to volunteer positions

    Donations: Please take great care with donations, they are good for disaster relief, but horrible when given to other countries in the normal course of life. A donation that gives money to an Africa country for example, enables a country to not do their proper duty and job, thus elongating the time the major problem exist.

Give a donation, create a slave for life. Read this: Enslaved by Love
