Four Charities You Can Donate To In Support Of 9/11 Victims

September 4th, 2013 Seasonal

The tragedy of September 11, 2001, had a widespread effect on the whole country, but some people were affected more intimately because of loved ones that they lost. With the upcoming 10-year anniversary of 9/11, many of the victims' families and friends still need support - here are a few ways that you can reach out by donating to charity.

Tuesday's Children

Tuesday's Children started out as a charity dedicated to helping children and families who were affected by 9/11. It's expanded into an international organization that assists anyone who's been impacted by terrorism. According to The Huffington Post, Tuesday's Children offers everything from childcare to mentoring to career planning services.

Michael Lynch Memorial Foundation

The Michael Lynch Memorial Foundation gets its namesake from a firefighter who lost his life during 9/11. This organization helps children who lost relatives during 9/11 by giving them funds to attend college. The Huffington Post reports that within the last decade, there's been more than 2.3 million dollars given out.

FeelGood Foundation

Many people who responded to help out during 9/11 suffered injuries or got sick. The FeelGood Foundation was started by John Feal, whose foot got crushed as he worked on the recovery at ground zero. By donating, you'll help with the medical bills and other assistance efforts for all of the construction workers, firefighters, nurses and other volunteers who were involved.

VOICES of September 11

VOICES of September 11 provides a large range of services to those who were affected by the 9/11 tragedy. They also help organize and host commemorative events. In 2006, they created a digital archive as a memorial for people who lost their lives in the tragedy.
