The Writer Will Take Your Questions Now (#78) -- Charities

What charities do you endorse?

I know the en vogue answer for comic book writers is the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF) and The Hero Initiative, and I do support those and encourage you to do so as well, but I have a few others that are particularly near and dear to my heart.These are a few of my favorite groups/charities, and I think they're worth a few minutes of your time, and perhaps a few dollars as well. Thanks.
