A Bleg for All Seasons OR Charitable Giving

I'm stepping up my donation requests in an effort to actually make this blog useful.

I've mentioned to you previously about the needs of the Salesian Technical School in Bethlehem, and the assistance that Salesian Missions is providing to help funnel funds to this school.

You can help by sending your donations here:

Salesian Missions
2 Lefevre Lane
New Rochelle, NY 10802-0030

Please put Code AX in the memo section of your check.

You can also donate online or by phone at 1.888.608.2327.

You might notice that the story on the technical school is hosted on the Catholic Near East Welfare Association site, a papal charity that works specifically for needs in the churches and people of the near east.

Another organization under the authority of the Holy See is Aid to the Church in Need.

If you want to follow up your prolife votes with prolife action, visist the Several Sources Shelters site. This organization provides shelter and aid to unwed mothers.

One of my preferred prolife organizations is American Life League.

If you haven't heard of FOCUS, it's an outreach ministry to Catholic university students.

Finally, if you want to support a growing Benedictine monastery in Tulsa, see the Clear Creek Monastery site. And to be fair, here's one for the Sisters of Life.

If you have any charities to suggest, please let me know.

UPDATE: Here's an interesting article on charitable giving by political affiliation.
