I love to focus the end of my year on giving, and so I thought it would be nice to write about some top-rated charities that get great reviews on Charity Watch that I think are worth donating to this holiday season! I tried to pick charities that do really interesting, useful, and necessary things, but that you may not have heard about. I would love to hear about favorite charities that you support in the comments!
