BENEFITING: DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS USA INC
I'm turning 30 so I thought it would be appropriate to aim for $30 from 30 people.
You can give whatever, $3, 30 cents, it doesn't matter, I would actually prefer more people participate and everyone give less. (The site only takes >$10 so if donating less than $10 you can mail me a check.)
Why MSF? 1. I'm obviously biased. 2. People get excited when they hear about conflict and calamity in the news - earthquakes in Nepal or Haiti, genocides in Sudan, Ebola in West Africa, ad infinitum. But MSF is not only there to offer aid in all these scenarios; they are constantly striving for advocacy often both before and long after the news crews come or leave.
I highly recommend checking out their site: http://www.msf.org/
