It's always the right time to give back. If you're contemplating donating to a charity, then this is the sign you need to go right ahead and do it. Here are a few tips on the best way to go about your first (or your fiftieth) donation.
1. Research your chosen charity
There are plenty of worthy charities out there that are in need of help. Choose one that you feel the most passionate about, but also make sure to see that they are a legitimate charity. It's not unheard of for a modus operandi to pose as a fake charity simply to scam people out of their goodwill. Always make sure that the organisation you pick is trustworthy and transparent. The Philippine Council for NGO Certification offers a list of accredited non-profits that are trusted, effective, and accountable.
