I'm looking for a new charity to donate to regularly; I have a couple in mind but remembered seeing some mentioned in here from time to time that sparked my interest.
I'm thinking Australian, but am open to others

We sponsor a child through World Vision and I am a monthly donator to the WSPA and sponsor a dog for a charity called Soi Dog which rescues, sterilized, rehabilitates, etc Thai street dogs and also rescues dogs being smuggled by the dog meat trade to Vietnam. I'm actually quite attached to that charity, they do amazing work and regularly update you. Unfortunately your donations aren't tax deductible in Australia but are in the UK and USA. They also help you adopt their dogs and transport them to your country.
ETA: I also regularly support Wildlife Victoria which regularly needs help during heat-waves and fires.

I am a "human rights defender" with amnesty international (fancy name for regular donor). Although I can't help but think all the money I donate is eaten up by all the mail and phone calls I receive asking me for more money..

DH, all on his own accord, bless him, signed up for a $35 a month direct debit for Breast Cancer Australia. We've now been doing it for over a year
ETA - We're also looking into a sponsor child at the moment, though haven't committed to that yet.

I give to the Fistula Foundation - a not for profit organisation helping mainly African nations provide women with free surgery to fix childbirth injuries (usually incontinence related following difficult labours).
I had no idea this existed until I went to a talk (years before I had kids).

We donate to the RSPCA and the the Breast Cancer Foundation. I also sponsor rescue dogs when donations are sought.
Totally in love with our two beautiful little girls.

Wspa, RSPCA and the odd random one (cancer council or salvos) at the shopping centre. I also have signed petitions and sent letters to MP's.
