My goal for this week is to write at least 10 letters to seek a partnership with a charity. Want part of the proceeds from my upcoming book, "Amazing Advice" to go to a non-profit.
Here is the Monday Journal Question:
Favorite Charity? Please post your favorite charity. Want to form a partnership with a good charity for proceeds from my new book. First charity didn’t work out. So – tell me who or what group is nice. Thanks, Danny.
Here are what my facebook friends have said so far:

I am all about St Judes. I could go on for hours about why, but in my eyes that's just one charity that is really taking 100% of what you give, and giving 100% of themselves in return.
St. Jude's is Great, also partial to Alzheimer's Association & Diabetes Association. Good luck! Great idea!
Nuru International....they do sustainable development in the developing world....amazing work with amazing results....and started by a fellow west virginian....www.nuruinternational.org

Heifer International is great -they give livestock and education to people worldwide who live in poverty, so that they can break the cycle. I always had my students doing a read-a-thon during March to support HI. I worked for the Arthritis Foundation in Arizona, and they're pretty awesome as well. Arthritis isn't as "popular" a disease as say cancer, but it affects a huge number of people.....my mom being one of them. There's my two-cents' worth! :-)
why not give to hospital that employs a rec therapist
It's not in WV but Special Kids of Tennessee (in Murfreesboro). They're a non-proffit. They provide occupational, physical, speech and I believe some recreational therapy for special needs children. I used to volunteer there and love them! They're an amazing group of people! :o) they have a facebook page if you want to check them out.
I second Special Kids! Phillip's brother went there when he was alive. They do amazing things for the kids and rely on donations.

St Jude's is amazing. As is March of Dimes. I'm partial to anything that helps children.
Victory juction gang camp is a camp for children with disabilities and/or illness(and their families) that offers a week or weekend specific to their needs. Amazing place, I volunteer there at least once a year and have been doing it for 5 years now!
special olympics,and people for the ethical treatmentof animals also rescue ink do good work for rescuing animals.
