Local co-ops and grassroots organisations that work directly with beneficiaries and service users. I would avoid charities especially the international ones.

None. I would buy the essentials people need and distribute it myself.

Mostly grassroots charities supporting survivors of honour abuse, sexual offenders and violent crime.

BLM (not a charity), so that the leaders can donate it to political parties and perhaps purchase themselves a mansion... or two.

I can't tell if you are being serious or not, because I've actually heard this being a reason from others who donate to BLM. :afraid:

Great Ormand Street Hospital, they'd saved my life so it's the least I could do.

Mansions against racism!

Spoiler:

I am happy to confirm to you that I am indeed joking.
I was under the impression that people who donate to BLM fall into two categories- those who mistakenly believe that the money is being used to fight racism and those that couldn't care less about racism but do very much care about their public perception.
Where on earth have you met these people? I want to stay away.

The last time I took any interest in this... BLM do not even pay any accountants to manage their money for them. So, nobody knows what it gets spent on, or necessarily even where it comes from.

Edit: I see you were joking now. I should have known better I suppose. lol

I'd start a charity that audited and exposed other charities, and then appropriated some of their assets in the confusion.

BLM is a concept and social movement whose only cohesion comes from social media search engines. Where exactly would you send the money?
