Their organization is transparent, open and accountable in reporting how your donations are used to make a difference in the lives of those that need our help. The Canadian Red Cross Society received a grade of A+ in every category, including overall charity efficiency, fundraising efficiency, and governance and transparency from Money Senses 2012 Canadian charity rating report. They were also among only two charities that appeared on both the biggest and top-rated charities lists.

I chose the Canadian Red Cross as my NGO to present simply because it is one of the more well known NGO's. I remember watching Celebrity Apprentice and observing that many celebrities were raising money for the American Red Cross Foundation. Seeing as these stars were trusting their money with the Red Cross, I knew that it was a legitimate and reliable NGO.
