Legitimate charity organizations can provide a tremendous amount of assistance to those in need. There are plenty of areas that charities can focus on in order to help needy citizens. United States veterans that come back home after deployment are in great need of a variety of assistance. War veterans often come back wounded with severe permanent injuries. Essentially, these veterans are disabled and cannot enter civilian life easily without help.

There are plenty of charity organizations that are dedicated to serving those who have served this country in the line of duty abroad. For example, Lois Pope is an active member in the Disabled Veterans’ Life Memorial Foundation. Such an organization helps United States military members with recovering mentally and physically. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a very serious mental disability that prevents war veterans from functioning normally in civilian life. Of course, a variety of physical injuries such as cut off limbs also lead to severe disabilities. Charity organizations often raise money to cover the expenses involved with mental and physical therapy for United States soldiers. For example, prosthetic legs can be very expensive and out of the budget of many military members. Charities can help soldiers without legs to afford prosthetic legs and the therapy necessary to utilize them.

Soldiers often struggle to live normal lives with small pensions and other government sponsored benefits. In fact, many veterans become homeless after returning from deployment. Charities try to prevent the shocking trends that involve honored soldiers becoming homeless beggars in the streets. Some foundations can raise money to refinance the homes of U.S. veterans or build completely new homes. Charities that focus on American soldiers may also provide companion pets such as trained dogs. These service animals can help injured soldiers recover mentally and physically at home.

Mrs. Pope is also an example of a charity activist and philanthropist that raises money for other causes besides the military. As the president of LIFE (Leaders in Furthering Education), she leads by example when it comes to raising awareness and funds for educational purposes in the United States of America. Such a foundation focuses on making higher education available for people with underprivileged backgrounds. Scholarships are usually set up to help students afford a quality college education. Educational charities often create scholarships in honor of people that have passed away. Such people could include teenagers that have died in tragic accidents and wanted to pursue a certain career choice.

In the age of the internet, people can become more aware of the types of charities that are out there. Websites allow for making kind donations online in different amounts. Additionally, charity websites often invite anyone that is interested to attend local fundraisers, seminars and other events related to specific causes. Legitimate charities should be open about their policies and have transparent methods of collecting money and sharing information about the available funds. The internet can be used to help spread the word around about different charitable causes through the social media and social networks. These days, charity activists try to appeal to a larger audience by directly advertising on websites. In the age of smartphones, people can instantly find out about charities that they’ve never heard of before. Such news might prompt people to make instant online donations through smartphones.
