Red Cross - Probably the best known. You can give money, blood, whatever you can.
Feed The Children - Help children in the United States as well as worldwide.
The Salvation Army - Donate old clothes, food, toys, etc., from your home or donate money or volunteer your time.
ASPCA - Another place to help animals.
North Shore Animal League America - Help for pets. No-kill animal shelters.
United Way - Helps with disasters and other times people need help. Donate money or volunteer your time.
America's Second Harvest - A food bank network. Give money, food or volunteer your time.
Direct Relief International - Help for people in needy areas with a focus on health.
Habitat for Humanity - Builds houses for those in need. Donate money or help build homes.
Blood Banks - Check your local area for Red Cross or other places to donate blood. In my area, I go to the San Diego Blood Bank.
It doesn't matter that you can't always afford to donate money, there is much you can do to make this world a better place by giving of your time, donating blood, or giving things away you no longer need.
There are many more worthy organizations than the ones listed here. Always be certain that your donations will be used appropriately. It is all too common for excessive amounts to go to administration or for scams to appear to be charities. Do your homework even when you just want to help. One good place to research is Charity Navigator.
