Why not take that money and instead of tossing it to 'charitable' destinations use it to create an investment fund to help jumpstart people with projects that will create jobs and/or are aimed at sustainable living or 'green' technologies ?

That would be a lot more effective in the long run than it would be to just pass the responsibility for the spending off to some overhead ridden charity.
