the more left leaning the group the better.
Which is my requirement for a charity (or any group, really) on general principle!  <jk>
Is charity considered a requirement in your religion?  Does the type of charity matter?

I don't think ADF specifically requires charity.  (Sailor_tech, having been involved with them in the past, you'd probably know better than myself as I'm such a newbie.)  I do get a sense of "taking care of each other" implied in the virtue of hospitality.

However, on my own moral grounds - which I don't really distinguish from religion (one of the benefits of wandering off on one's own path) - it's required (and it's an area where I fail terribly.)   

Type?  Like mandrina said, something that actually accomplishes something.  In this order, I'd think: 
1.  Taking care of people (Food banks, Red Cross, Amnesty International)
2.  Taking care of the environment
3.  Education

Though they are all so important, ranking them is difficult.
