    Default Donating To Charities

    Do you donate to Charities and if so is there a certain amount or is it just what you have at the time?

    I usually give spare change to my little one so he can put in the various containers around town. We also donate toys at the holidays to various organizations. We donate clothes and household things to Goodwill and Salvation Army.
    At work just a few months ago, I headed up a coin drive in my department which gathered over $400.00 to donate to a child the company was sponsoring for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

    my charity of choice is the local domestic violence shelter. this time of year i drop some here and there. no set amount but if it's not enough to make me pause for a second it's not enough.

    I don't hate you for not loving me anymore, but I hate myself for still loving you.

    We had to pick one for us, since we bought a house and had kids, it's non stop people hitting us up for something, pizza, cancer, sick kids, poor kids, lost people, old people etc etc.

    I was totally going to put that in my response. It's important to check who you give out too, I know up here there's charity's that give out Ferrari's and Cottages etc etc but the cost of running those are super high so allot of times it's not like your money goes to help the actual cause you wanted to help.

    The second was all the "pink" stuff for breast cancer. There's tons of company's that stick the pink ribbon or colour items pink but how much do they actually give back? there's no guide to what a company has to give up to put that on their items so you have to be careful if your getting it for that purpose.

    Money sense up here made a pretty good guide to what goes in and out and some of it might surprise

    Not sure how it works in the US but that's totally something to look at
