Choosing a charity for peace

Someone named Sandy Stonesifer writes a column for Slate Magazine called "My Goodness" that contains advice about how to make the world a better place. The most recent offering starts off this way:

Dear Sandy,

President Obama just accepted the Nobel Peace Prize, which comes with an award of $1.4 million. The White House has announced that he will donate this money to charity. What is your recommendation for where this money should go?

— Caroline

Click on through to see what Sandy suggests. In addition to Sandy's recommendations, I'd like to call to your attention the work of any of Dr. Helen Caldicott's organizations. Dr. Caldicott has worked for many years to educate the public about what would really happen if we used nuclear weapons.
