    Sponsor a Child - which charity is best? 27th Feb 08 at 11:33 AM
    Not really money saving as I want to give some away.

    I'm looking at the various charities that do 'sponsor a child'.

    Does anyone know which is best, or have any tips?

    I'm looking at the amount of money that actually gets to the area in need (varies from 75-85p in each pound so far - smaller charities it seems to be more so I guess the big ones aren't run so efficiently).

    Also, the ones that are Christian charities, are they forcing Christianity on the kids? I know a lot of poor areas are Christian anyway, but I'm not religious myself and I don't agree with views being imposed on anyone in that way.

    I also know that regular donations to charities which then help lots of kids may be 'better', but it's a selfish thing of liking the idea of one individual beign helped. It's easier to picture.
