I'll take this opportunity to ask about ChildFund International. Somebody did a cold call at our door a couple of years ago and I bit. Have been sponsoring a child in South America for roughly $30 per month since then. It was an easy way to feel like we were doing "something", but I'm always a cynic when it comes to charities. For one, I hate the cold-call door-knock strategy. And for two, I'm increasingly seeing ChildFund solicit outside of our local grocery store. Either they have a lot of enthusiastic volunteers working on their behalf or it's one of those hard-sell commission deals where the sellers don't give a sh*% about the cause.

I contribute to other causes that are more local and transparent but I've always wondered about ChildFund. They get good ratings on-line, but does anyone here have anything good or bad to say about them?

No personal experience but I learned with the annual Federal charity campaigns to use CharityWatch.
Save the Children used by Klim is bigger than ChildFund and more of what they collect goes to the kids. Even so, ChildFund does well enough to be A- rated and BOTH are considered to be in the top-rated group of charities.
