Tzidkas Rashbi runs a year-round hospitality site at the kever of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, which goes in to overdrive for Lag B'Omer, when the kever is visited by hundreds of thousands.
Special blessings are written about those who support charity at the kever of Rashbi, for those in need of special blessings. Of course, our local yeshiva's, yeshiva students, and charities helping the poor should have our first focus. But for those with the ability to give, and those needing a special segulah (merit), Tzidkas Rashbi is worth consideration.
A competing Miron hospitality organization at the holy kever of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai is Ohel HaRashbi (web site here). Both this organization and Tzidkas Rashbi seem to have good rabbinic approbation, this one has some less expensive charity options.
Those looking for a special segulah beyond their normal charity opportunities should check it out.
