I've been feeling guilty for a while about the fact that I don't donate to charity. I'd like to fix this, but am unsure as to what a good choice of charities would be. I'd like advice, and am extremely open to advocacy on causes you feel are important (though I might of course disagree).
* I'd like to donate to at least 2 or 3 different charities rather than just one.
* I'm prepared as a starting point to commit about £100/month. I may increase this as I sort out my finances.
* I'd like to donate to environmental causes. I'm considering reforestation projects as a possibility but don't know if that's effective.
* I'd like at least one charity to be targeting something local to the UK, possibly education related, but am not that set on it.
