What are some good Atheist/Secular charities?

I have a few extended family members that I rarely ever see, but would like to give some sort of gift.  I was planning to make a donation to charity in their name, but I want to steer clear of Christian or really any religious based charities.  Can you all suggest any for me please?  Some of these relatives are religious, while others are Atheist.  Thanks for the help!See More
