When you shop after earning reward points using your credit cards you normally just think of yourself when you spend your points. However, after so many disasters that you cannot even count on one hand you have to find some way to give back to the community. You could also donate to the many non-profit organizations directly without a disaster to strike. The Bill Gates philanthropy fund and an AIDS or Cancer Research fund are always very good-hearted ways to improve the world’s health. There are also very simple ways of donating when you use your credit card. A few of the great charity or non-profit organization credit cards include the Democratic Party card, Republican, Minority and African-American, HRC, Anne Geddes Baby Card, and the Make-A-Wish Card (featured below). These are special credit cards that make you feel good about every purchase because you are doing better for the community.
