RMH does help a lot. I have seen some really good stuff on them.
Speaking of charities, I read that Shriner's Hospital for Kids has closed 4 research centers out of the 8 they have. They are talking about closing a couple of hospitals also. They say the economy really hit their portfolio hard. It's really sad since they take care of a lot of kids also, for absolutely free. Maybe they will recover.
This is the most recent article I read, it says six hospitals may close.
