    What charities do you think HPFF should sponsor? List me some and I'll add them to our main web page ( http://www.hipointfirearmsforums.com/ ) for people to be able to donate. We'll also be donating as we get advertisers and what not to good ,honest charities.Whether it concerns our troops, cancer, heart disease, breast cancer, Alzheimer's, children's cancer/ illnesses, the Salvation Army, a Christian church cause to spread the word, or any good charity that gives as much as possible to the honorable cause without any selfishness...

    NRA would be good. How about Toys for Tots (affiliated with the Marine Corp) All the others listed above are good too.

    Speaking of advertisers, has anyone thought about adding google ads or amazon webstore to the site? With amazon, forum members could shop and HPFF would get about 4% of the total sales generated. There are probably some outdoor type stores that have similar affiliate programs too.

    Just my two cents

    NRA and Salvation Army are a must....they will be added as well as United Way. Keep them coming guys.

    Remember... "let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need." -Ephesians 4:28

    The above foundation has a personal spot in my wallet, and heart, because my dad passed away in 1989 due to complications brought on by A.L.S. also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. Below is a short description of ALS...

    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually lead to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.

    Mortality rate is 100% with life expectency of 18 months to 5 years after onset of symptoms.

    Good choices so far.
    I also support and recommend the Red Cross.

    A little story here and short:

    Number 1 is that I've been at various emergencies and disasters helping out and the Red Cross has always been there.
    Number 2 is that while I was in the Army I had an emergency at home. The Red Cross contacted my CO, set everything up and arranged transportation.

    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

    Most people don't know about the huge humanitarian aid program they have, but they are almost as mobilized as the US military. In the event of a disaster, they are on site and offering aid even before the Red Cross.

    Not to mention the largest missionary program in the world, or the largest geneology program in the world. And one of the largest, most effective church welfare programs in existence. Oh, and they don't ban guns from chapels like so many churches do. They don't encourage it, but you are free to do so. My bishop used to carry in church every sunday. :) The church has no paid ministry, so he was a DEA agent during the week...

    Ill look into all of these guys!
     
  11. St Judes Hospital.

    They do cancer research and treatment for children with cancer. They will not turn a child away because of the familys not having any money to pay.

    Its just not fair for a kid that has not had a chance to live yet to die from a crappy disease like cancer.

    I suspect you'll get quite a list, not sure how you'll decide. You may recall, my 2008 United Way donation was made in the forum's name - as I wanted to recognize all I rec'd here in the way of learning, friendship and the mandatory harassment. Were I to vote, I make it something service related to honor all the vets and LE's on the site. That's a theme that runs deep here.

    Anything that supports kids, incurable diseases or the Military is good to go with me. St. Judes House is a really good one for that. The Mayo clinic is another good one. Uraijit suggested the LDS, that's a great one *My stepdad is mormon* and the ALS one that RFH suggested is another great one.

    There are way too many good charities to really list, as they all serve a great cause.
