Please accept this Guardian Angel... @ 06:44 pm

EW! So quoth the glurge that showed up in my mail recently. There's a pin with an angel holding a dove enclosed in the envelope along with several pieces of literature asking me for money to help homeless kids in Hollywood, so that "you can be ... a wonderful and precious angel of mercy who is there for them in their time of need."
I also passed by two members of the militant wing of the Salvation Army today.
Now I don't want to appear like a Grinch, so I promise to resolve to send a bit more than usual to my non-religious charities and organizations this year. N

What are the good non-religious charities?

Personally, I wanna see a Satanic organization devoted to helping kids read or something. And they ask for federal funding on the faith-based intiative.

Doctors without Borders
Conservation Fund
Alzheimer's Association -- obviously, there's probably a group for your own favorite disease.
Reach out and Read
The dreaded ACLU - I've actually stopped giving them money.
Americans United for the Separation of Church and State.
CSICOP
James Randi Educational Foundation
National Center for Science Education

Here's a list of the 100 best charities, not necessarily secular. It's sometimes hard to tell. For instance, Habitat for Humanity is an "ecumenical Christian organization". And Feed the Children, which is on the 10 worst list, is Larry Jones International Ministries.
