Best Friends Animal Sanctuary (www.bestfriends.org). They have a major campaign this year to manage pet overpopulation so no more unwanted animals are put to sleep.

Central Ohio Parkinson Society. http://www.centralohioparkinson.org/

My grandmother suffered from this horrible affliction for many years, and I only wish that she had the support that a foundation like this provides. COPS is run by volunteers who dedicate so much to provide tools and support to those afflicted, as well as the family members facing the challenges of coping with the hard realities that come with Parkinson's disease.

This is fantastic that you're commiting to donating revenue to charity! I'd like to nominate Mid-Ohio Food Bank (http://donations.ebay.com/charity/charity.jsp?NP_ID=14235). They are a central location to seek out, collect, sort, re-package, and distribute food to food pantries across a large part of Ohio. Many food pantries in smaller communities get their food from Mid-Ohio Food Bank.

Central Ohio Alzheimer Association
http://www.alz.org/centralohio/

They have a nursing staff who will come out to your home and assess you or your loved one and help put you in contact with services and therapies that can help ease the burden and help you find a direction to go in. They run educational programs for caregivers and professionals and have many specialized support groups for many forms of dementia, not just Alzheimers. Their caregiver classes are extremely helpful for those facing the reality of losing their loved one twice. The central Ohio chapter is one of the last that is operating in this fashion, the national organization is pushing to move to a web based support group format and spend the resources on research. While research is needed, our local chapter actually helps people now, when they need it in a way that an online support group couldn't even begin to achieve. As long as they can keep up the funding they can continue to offer the comprehensive services.

Thanks for the ideas. Keep them coming!

I forgot to add that last year we gave to Capital Area Humane Society, Clintonville/Beechwold Community Resource Center, US Fund for United Nations Children’s Fund, Nature Conservancy and Local Public Radio Station WCBE. These are certainly not exempt from getting donations this years. :)

Even though they aren't on the Mission Fish site, I would like to plug the Arc of Appalachia Preserve System (I've sent them a note to get themselves listed there :)
