In this season of giving, there are dozens of organizations to support. One nonprofit just happened to sweep this category for its commitment to chronically ill children and their families.

Bert's Big Adventure swept the vote with 57 percent. The charity, backed by nationally-syndicated radio host Bert Weiss of Q100, financially support children with chronic illnesses. The organizations pays for families of those children to visit Walt Disney World. This year, they sent 13 children with their families to Disney on a charter flight to Orlando. See the photos
