With the 2015 holiday season quickly approaching many people will be thinking about giving money to charities. But please remember before you give to check out the charity to ensure that your hard earned money is not just going to line the pockets of the charity staff.

You can find a list of great charities at CHARITY WATCH. Please check them out and educate yourself before giving your money.
