I figure the best way to give back to her is by doing something meaningful in her name. Not only will it make her feel good but she will be a part of the larger global community through her child’s effort. Win-Win!

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 13, 2012

With Mother’s Day here, RoadFish.com has managed to compile a list that gives the gift of “good karma”. Instead of spending large amounts of money on a Mother’s Day gift, their four charities of note list provides charitable, affordable options for adult children to donate to on their mother’s behalf. RoadFish.com’s Junior Staff Writer states, “I figure the best way to give back to her is by doing something meaningful in her name. Not only will it make her feel good but she will be a part of the larger global community through her child’s effort. Win-Win! So keep your credit score intact and post-pone that outrageous week-long trip to Europe for you and mom until next year!”

Charitable organizations are non-profit organizations that focus primarily on the monetary donations of others in order to support their causes. Although charity organizations vary by country, their end goal is often the same: help those that cannot help themselves. Among the numerous needs unevenly spread throughout the world, most charitable organizations serve those in communities that are poverty-stricken, and those animals and children that have been abused.

According to Arab News' Sami Al-Nwaisir, charity organizations and the people who volunteer at them are more important than most people can imagine. Al-Nwaisir stated, “It is often mistakenly believed that charitable organizations and their volunteer activities are unimportant and of little consequence to a country’s economic system, but nothing could be further from the truth. In reality, charitable activities make a vital contribution to the economic, social and political sectors of a nation.”

RoadFish.com’s four charities of note are focused on women, children, animals, and sustainability in America and also developing countries around the world.

The list includes International non-profit organization, Women for Women, which supports the economic endeavors of mothers in third world countries. Their mission is to provide, “women survivors of war, civil strife and other conflicts with the tools and resources to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency, thereby promoting viable civil societies.”

Another organization focused on providing better environments to impoverished nations is charity: water, founded by event promoter-turned-philanthropic entrepreneur Kevin Rose. This donation option comes with a print-it-yourself card to send to a loved one. It also provides the option to sponsor a water project, and/or purchase a gift card that includes gifts for the recipient.

Kids in Need Foundation and the Humane Society also make the four charities of note list. Both of these charities impact those with the smallest, often unheard voices of children and animals. Charles P. Pierce writes on Oprah.com, “There is nothing more visceral than cynicism, nothing more brutish than greed. These are reflexes, common and unremarkable, of the undeveloped spirit. But charity in its finest sense is always an act of the creative imagination.”
