Over the past year, you have helped us support United Family Services, the Susan G. Komen foundation and relief efforts from the Fukushima disaster in Japan.  In total we were able to give back $2775 to those in need.  With that in mind, we need your help picking a charity for 2012.  We have narrowed it down to two worthy organizations: Habitat for Humanity of Charlotte and the Humane Society of Charlotte.

Habitat Charlotte:  Habitat Charlotte was organized in 1983 and has built 1000 homes for needy families in the Charlotte area.  By utilizing the good will of local individuals and businesses Habitat Charlotte builds Energy Star certified homes and offers them to carefully selected families at zero interest.

Humane Society:  The Humane Society of Charlotte was founded in 1978 and is a "No kill of adoptable animal" shelter.  They offer a variety of services to the community but most importantly they are committed to creating "a world where there are no more homeless and unwanted animals."

Both are noble organizations and we would be happy to contribute to either.  Let us know which one you would prefer by leaving us feedback below.  Voting will end on Sunday January 15th at midnight.


Sabre Thompson:

I like both but with your love of animals I vote for the Humane Society.

I would choose the Humane Society if I knew every penny was going to help a local rescue group, and not go into someone’s paycheck.

Habitat Charlotte. I just volunteered for the organization recently and learned they help repair older homes for people that cannot afford to do the upkeep themselves.

A suggestion for 2013, if it doesn’t need to be local, Micheal J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

I say Humane Society. When my son Cameron was at Duke Hospital undergoing treatment for leukemia, he had a therapy dog that visited. It was a shelter dog that was trained for therapy. He loved those visits.
