Helping one person at a time (part 2)

Sunday I wrote part 1 of this series of posts. We’ve brought up some good questions while looking at GlobalGiving.com (thanks for the link aptrick).

The first one is whether or not to profile full-on missions and projects, or to just stay with the personal one-on-one of families and individuals. What do you think?

    That’s a good question. I think that for people who want to give but do not know any individuals to give to then giving to an organization is great. Also people who have lots to give, an organization would be a good fit. But for me who only has a little to give I need to know who my money is going to and what they are doing with it. So I choose to stick to my personal friends. But the truth of the matter is that someone has to needs to be giving to the bigger organizations. However it all really comes down to where God wants you to give your money. :-)
