ICIWorld’s Charities and Aid Resource Page


November 25, 2023

A great deal more work is needed for this page. Can you help?

In fact it is something that when the service is growing into thousands of users and it is setup to continue to grow and prosper, the freedom that I would have I would like to transition to contributing in some special ways to boost the efforts of the many wonderful people and causes they support who generously devote their time and efforts to help others in need.

We could use some assistance in developing this page dedicated to offering suggestions for individuals to direct their efforts towards good causes. I would like to list the causes on this page that you support. It may help others to choose to contribute their time, effort and money. 

We will be reviewing these links one by one for verification. If you would like to assist, please let us know.

One of the remarkable aspects of the ICIWorld service is how it can empower both real estate professionals and its users to generate and accumulate wealth. The generosity displayed by the service’s members, as well as its buyers and sellers, can be harnessed to aid those less fortunate and in need.

Therefore, the more income generated by ICIWorld’s members and users, the more they are inclined to contribute to various charitable and humanitarian causes. Whether it’s supporting children’s hospitals, Doctors Without Borders, disaster relief organizations, the United Way, the Salvation Army, food banks, homeless shelters, and many more. May we hear about your noble gestures in the community?

Service to mankind is the best work of life.

We present this page as a modest way for you to inform us about charitable activities.

We will be reviewing these links one by one for verification. If you would like to assist, please let us know.

If you have a charity you endorse and would like to recommend, kindly inform us, and we will include it on this page.

ICIWorld’s Charities and Aid Resource Page

Many of the following aid organizations play critical roles in responding to disasters in Haiti, as well as other humanitarian crises like Hurricane Katrina and the South Asia tsunami.

Social responsibility is a significant concern for people. By contributing to causes they believe in, individuals can make a positive impact, even in small ways. This page can assist you in making informed choices and understanding how to contribute effectively.

Another crucial reason for creating this page is to educate you about fraudulent entities posing as legitimate charities.

“In the aftermath of the disaster in Haiti, scammers were quick to exploit the situation through deceptive emails,” stated Dylan Morris, the spokesperson for security software maker Symantec. Most spam emails masquerade as genuine donation requests from aid organizations. They often involve requests for personal information sent to email addresses or fax numbers.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade offers a guide to help the public avoid scams and ensure that their donations are put to maximum use, available online at www.international.gc.ca.

The Better Business Bureau recommends consulting the Canadian Revenue Agency’s list of registered charities and relief organizations at www.cra.gc.ca/donors.

This article mentions a partial list of reputable humanitarian organizations, including WorldVision Canada, Medicins Sans Frontieres, Save the Children, and the Canadian Red Cross. UNICEF is also actively involved in such efforts.

Meanwhile, provincial governments are making contributions to the Canadian Red Cross to support relief efforts.

CNN’s Impact Your World is an initiative that encourages individuals to make a difference when disasters strike or tragic events occur.

There is also a special fund established by the National Association of Realtors® to provide emergency relief to hurricane victims, with details available here.
