Top 35 Women’s Health Charities

Flattr this!

A few months ago, Suzane Smith shared the “Top 35 Women’s Health Charities to Learn About and Support This Holiday Season.” Of course, the big holiday season is over (although there’s always one around the corner), but I thought I’d share her list anyway because these charities always need your support. If you want more information on each charity, visit her X-Rays Vision-aries blog for capsule descriptions for each charity.
