Donating $1,700 to Charity. Week 3

The CheapIndianGuy is donating $1,700 to charities you suggest. I’m looking to donate approx $50 weekly to registered charities that people recommend, and give a small explanation in support of why.  So far I’ve gotten a number of recommendations on my Youtube video.

Today I had it in my mind to make the donation for this week.   By chance on Facebook I saw my old colleague Al McCreas invite to join the group “Please Help My Wife – Realize her Dream of Helping Others (Cancer Society)” .   Given I had a suggestion to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society this was ideal!  So I pledged $51 to help Al’s wife Julia accomplish her goal.  It’s true, everyone has been touched by cancer.  Please support the cause.   Thank you Al & Julia McCrea and nuri787.

Donations, and donations on behalf of.

1) Ituneskiller – $50 – Ottawa Food Bank

2) Nuria aka nuri787 – $51 – Canadian Cancer Society pledged to Julia Saltarelli-McCrea

  2. Hi Ravi,
    A great local charity is Children at Risk (http://www.childrenatrisk.ca/). They provide supports to families of children with autism spectrum disorders.
