As far as i know, they are very reputable and do fantastic work, and have never as far as i know done anything corrupt.
What does everybody else think about them?

The agency I used to work for had the Quebec chapter as a client. So far as I know, they were very legit and the people who worked there cared about the cause. If you're thinking of donating, you can always check the percentage of funds that go to pay administrative costs. As a general rule, that's a good way to gauge their efficiency.

Thanks Tway

Yes, i am thinking of donating.
Not a fortune. But i do like what i can afford, to be used well.

It might be a good idea to ask that AI not send you mass mailings as well asking for further donations...postage and such costs more than many people donate.

That is a serious problem with many charities. They tend to spend more on advertising themselves than on actually helping. Nonetheless, I think AI is worthwhile.
