With the holiday season just around the corner, many Americans will soon get into the spirit of giving.
Experts advice those wanting to give to charities should check out the charity first. During the holiday season, some scam artists will take advantage of others generosity with charity scams.
The Better Business Bureau says there are websites that can help donators check out charities before the give.
One of those sites is Charity Navigator. You can search for a charity by name of keywords.
You can also search on the BBB website as well.
