    ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals)

    http://www.aspca.org/

    "Founded in 1866, the ASPCA was the first humane organization in the Western Hemisphere. Our mission, as stated by founder Henry Bergh, is “to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States.” The ASPCA works to rescue animals from abuse, pass humane laws and share resources with shelters nationwide."


    Make-A-Wish Foundation

    http://www.wish.org/ (U.S. Site)

    "We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy."

    "Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. The Foundation's mission reflects the life-changing impact that a Make-A-Wish® experience has on children, families, referral sources, donors, sponsors and entire communities.

    The Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded in 1980 after a little boy named Chris Greicius realized his heartfelt wish to become a police officer. Since its humble beginnings, the organization has blossomed into a worldwide phenomenon, reaching more than 250,000 children around the world."



    St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

    http://www.stjude.org

    "The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.

    "Our vision is to be the world leader in advancing the treatment and prevention of catastrophic diseases in children. This vision will be pursued by providing outstanding patient care; by conducting basic, translational and clinical research designed to elucidate biological mechanisms, understand disease pathogenesis, improve diagnosis, enhance treatment outcome, prevent diseases and minimize adverse consequences of treatment; and by educating health care and scientific research professionals. Through these efforts we seek to cure and enhance the quality of life for an increasing proportion of children who come to us for treatment, and by expanding and sharing knowledge, to advance treatment of children with catastrophic diseases worldwide, while developing strategies to prevent catastrophic diseases in children."


    American Red Cross (American and International Support)

    http://www.redcross.org/

    "The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors."

    "Fundamental Principles of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement

    Humanity
    The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, born of a desire to bring assistance without discrimination to the wounded on the battlefield endeavours, in its international and national capacity, to prevent and alleviate human suffering wherever it may be found. Its purpose is to protect life and health and to ensure respect for the human being. It promotes mutual understanding, friendship, cooperation and lasting peace among all peoples.

    Impartiality
    It makes no discrimination as to nationality, race, religious beliefs, class or political opinions. It endeavours to relieve the suffering of individuals, being guided solely by their needs, and to give priority to the most urgent cases of distress.

    Neutrality
    In order to continue to enjoy the confidence of all, the Movement may not take sides in hostilities or engage at any time in controversies of a political, racial, religious or ideological nature.

    Independence
    The Movement is independent. The National Societies, while auxiliaries in the humanitarian services of their governments and subject to the laws of their respective countries, must always maintain their autonomy so that they may be able at all times to act in accordance with the principles of the Movement.

    Voluntary Service
    It is a voluntary relief movement not prompted in any manner by desire for gain.

    Unity
    There can be only one Red Cross or one Red Crescent Society in any one country. It must be open to all. It must carry on its humanitarian work throughout its territory.

    Universality
    The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, in which all Societies have equal status and share equal responsibilities and duties in helping each other, is worldwide."



    Avon Foundation for Women (Supports U.S. and Global causes)

    http://www.avonfoundation.org/

    "The Avon Foundation has been improving and saving women’s lives since it was founded in 1955, and we are proud to be the largest corporate philanthropy dedicated to women’s causes globally. Today our mission is focused on breast cancer and domestic violence, as well as emergency and disaster relief, touching lives across the country and around the world. Through 2011, Avon global philanthropy has raised and donated more than $860 million worldwide."


    Susan G. Komen for the Cure (U.S. and Global Support)

    http://ww5.komen.org

    "Susan G. Komen fought breast cancer with her heart, body and soul. Throughout her diagnosis, treatments, and endless days in the hospital, she spent her time thinking of ways to make life better for other women battling breast cancer instead of worrying about her own situation. That concern for others continued even as Susan neared the end of her fight. Moved by Susan’s compassion for others and committed to making a difference, Nancy G. Brinker promised her sister that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever.

    That promise is now Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, the global leader of the breast cancer movement, having invested more than $1.9 billion since inception in 1982. As the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists, we’re working together to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® and the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure®, and generous contributions from our partners, sponsors and fellow supporters, we have become the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world. "


    "Our founder and CEO, Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker, promised that she would do what she could to end breast cancer forever – and everywhere. This is why Susan G. Komen for the Cure has been active outside the United States for years, providing funding, establishing partnerships and sharing what we’ve learned about breast cancer advocacy.

    Today, Komen for the Cure has partnered or funded programs in more than 50 countries as part of our nearly $1.5 billion investment in breast cancer research, education and community programs since 1982."



    March of Dimes (U.S. and Global Support)

    http://www.marchofdimes.com

    "We help moms have full-term pregnancies and research the problems that threaten the health of babies."

    "Working with our partners, the March of Dimes strives to develop and implement local programs that will ultimately improve the health of babies. Through our network of chapters and volunteers, these programs reach over a million people across the country and Puerto Rico each year. We provide information and services designed to prevent premature birth and birth defects and to promote healthy pregnancies."

    "Every year, more than 21 million babies worldwide are born prematurely or with a serious birth defect. More than 4 million will die before their 5th birthday. Yet, until recently, premature birth and birth defects had not been recognized as public health priorities by international health agencies, national governments or donor organizations.

    The March of Dimes has worked hard to change this. Since 1998, we have partnered with local organizations in 33 developing countries on four continents to improve the health and care of babies through professional education, public awareness and strengthening parent organizations. We help by providing financial support and sharing our technical expertise and resources. Our professional and public health education materials can be adapted to local conditions and needs. This approach allows us to respect the individual cultural differences of our partner organizations."



    United Way

    United Way envisions a world where all individuals and families achieve their human potential through education, income stability and healthy lives.

    Our Mission
    United Way improves lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good.

    Our Goals
    In 2008, United Way initiated a 10-year program designed to achieve the following goals by 2018:

    -Improve education, and cut the number of high school dropouts — 1.2 million students, every year — in half.

    -Help people achieve financial stability, and get 1.9 million working families — half the number of lower-income families who are financially unstable — on the road to economic independence.

    -Promote healthy lives, and increase by one-third the number of youth and adults who are healthy and avoid risky behaviors.

    Our goals are ambitious, but with your help, and by utilizing our core strengths — a national network, committed partners and public engagement capacity — we can achieve them."
