Finding a high-performance charity

Looking to donate by New Year's. I know lots of charities' names/elevator pitches but nothing about who's good. Help?

Every time I've asked this question before, I've gotten a bunch of one-liner answers saying things like "Heifer International is amazing." That's not what I'm looking for. I'm looking for a charity that:
-Directly helps those in need (not looking for arts/political advocacy/etc.) - probably in developing world
-Is GOOD at it (and there's some evidence of this)
All the websites I've seen just have huge lists of charities with some basic financial data/ratings. I'd ideally like to hear from someone who has put some time into examining/comparing charities and can recommend someone who's good. Any ideas?
