What to do with a nativity set created by a pedophile?

A friend recently found out she owns a nativity set painted by a local priest who has been convicted of child molestation. As a victim of abuse herself, she wants it out of the house but would prefer to somehow sell it and donate the proceeds to a relevant advocacy group. Is this reasonable or should she just smash it up and toss it? [more inside]

How much should I give to charity?

I'm ashamed: I bought a house, my child goes to a daycare that costs several hundred dollars a month, and I have all that I need. I also have been lax in giving to charity. I'd like to, but my wife sometimes is resistant, saying some version of the old saw that charity begins at home. I want some independent assessment for how much we should give. I've identified a number of charities I want to give to. But how much? Should it be a percentage of my salary?

Know of any good New Orleans-based charities?

You know, it's for the kids.

What do you get for people who have everything? Make a donation to those who don't in their name. A couple years ago my grandmother made a donation in my name to an organization that helped african communities buy livestock, water pumps and other agricultural supplies. This year I'd like to do the same. Unfortunately I've lost the card and am seeking information on similar charities.

Please help me give money away!

I have the opportunity to select the recipient for a very large charitable donation. GuideStar's products helped me find a list of eligible candidates, but it's still too long to meet with every possibility. How do I narrow the field without wasting an enormous amount of time and energy? The amount of money involved makes choosing randomly seem irresponsible.
