I'd like to support a poor child through a good charity. Would like suggestions for good charity.
Years ago I supported a Catholic charity, save the poor children and all that.
Got assigned a fatherless boy in Luzon, Phillipines and he was a cute toddler. Supported him until he was about 12--more on that later.
The Catholic charity duns you every fucking Catholic holiday or special calendar day for extra money for towels or socks (Christmas, Easter, Virgin Day, Arbor Day--you getting the picture?)a ton of money for postage to me--AND I'M JEWISH!
Sometimes I gave money, sometimes not. But once I sent a photo of handsome Aryan me, with my address on the back, and got a letter back from the mother of the child with photo. Clearly, she wanted to know if I needed a Phillipino maid and she sent a photo of the family.
The family was not starving, not naked, not covered flies. They looked like any dark skinned well-dressed family you'd see in Washington Heights in NYC.
I may need to break this up for length....
Yes, the family was mother and a couple kids and they looked really healthy, clothed, etc.
This was NOT what I intended when I eventually sunk about $5,000 into the family over the years.
I wanted something like the Darfour orphans, you know what I mean?
And then I thought, the Catholics probably just want money for missionary work. I'm sure some of my money got to the family, but I'm not happy about it.
Finally, it ended when I got a postcard from the charity saying the mother married and disappeared and would I like to support another different family?
I would. But not with them.
I want poor people. People with no shoes, no water to drink, war refugees, covered with flies (I say this to make a point, not a joke), the really, really destitute.
Have you any ideas of which charities I should look into AND WHICH CHARITIES I SHOULD STAY AWAY FROM BASED ON MY EXPERIENCE.
Thank you from---
And when I said Aryan me and Jewish, I just meant to stay I was good looking and Jewish. You might get the wrong idea.
You can find well-run charities (and know which ones to avoid) here:

Oh, no, not at all. The random all-caps made your mental illness quite obvious, although it was apparent throughout.
BigJew, perhaps you could start by googling "helping children of Darfur" or something like that.
There are some charities where you sponsor the child's education. Just google "helping educatevKemyan children" and check out the websites. Research any charity before making any donations.
You have to be the first Jew I have ever seen refer to himself as "Aryan" and proclaim their love for Jesus on a gossip forum.
Kathy Lee Gifford....could it be?
R4= pathetic pig that when asked at God's door what he has done for the poor will say he pissed on a bum once.
Here are some international children's charities with high ratings from Charity Navigator.

OP needs them sorted by flies per square inch on child.
Is that info included?
Maybe an indicator based upon flies, starvation and skin color?
R8, instead of coming here and trying to attempt humor, why don't you tell all of us what YOU have done for the poor?
If I find you, I will kick the fucking shit out of you, I will.
Don't be so sanctimonious you pretentious ass.
You are doing NOTHING for "the poor", this is all for yourself, so you can say look at how wonderful!!! I am.
This is why I gave up on Sally Struthers.
I asked for brown children with boils. I got smiling children from Nicaragua.
R9 - I'm really scared now.
Let's not talk about me, but you.
Your statement that you are Aryan and Jewish, but you point out the Aryan part so people will know you are good looking.
Anybody else see the problem with that statement, beyond your belief that only Jews who don't look like Jews are good looking?
Or how about your disappointment in the fact you contributed so much money and couldn't get regular pictures of someone's suffering?
Are you donating money to see pictures of people continuing to suffer?
Just for the record let me be very clear I was not just attempting humor I was being funny at your expense.
My clear intent was to make fun of you to point out how ridiculous you are.
It appears it worked.
Now why don't you threaten me again and go off someplace and masturbate - I will give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you only behave this way for sexual gratification.

I cannot stop laughing at this. Good one.
Be careful! I was paying for years for a child and they never did send her over.
An Extra Special Tale
Not [...], I can tell you that much.
1. Steer clear of anything religion-affiliated.
2. I support Doctors Without Borders. You know, the people who were actually trying to save victims in that Rwanda genocide while religious charities were quoting them bible verses?
3. Why must you focus your efforts on a particular child? Just give to a worthy group and don't get emotionally involved and don't have any expectations of reward in any form.
Here are two good ones with which I've had experience.
