    Just wondering, when was the last time you gave money to charity? Today, I mailed a $60 check to the American Red Cross, which hopefully will go to the relief efforts in Southeast Asia. It felt good to do something - now, I need to do more of it.

    Just donated my 88 Mercury Grand Marquis to the American Cancer Society. Hated to part with it because it runs great and is BIG TIME comfortable - Just never use it - got newer cars to drive.

    Ive never given a large amount to any charity, a few dollars here and therem but I give what I can so It makes me feel good knowing a gave the money to charity rather than going and buying a pint or something like that....

    On a similar note, I almost always give to people on the street which many people I know discourage doing. I feel that I should give even if they do just spend it on liqour or drugs since this may make thier life easier, even if its just for a little while. Anyway I was wonder how everyone else views this....

    Peace and Love,
    Jon

  5. i haven't done it in awhile and i should more often but if anyone is looking for an awsome cause to give to, the A.S.P.C.A can use all the help it can get!

    Personally i gave 10 euro, my stepdad doubled it, so it is 20:p
    We had this huge action here (in holland) we collected more then 112million euros
    so that's like 7.50 euro per citizen!! awesome! plus the government gave a total of 25 million. --> quite some money eh?

    I gave €50 to the tsunami appeal, disgracefully I don't often give to charity, but the tsunami tugged the heart strings.

    it's been a LONG Time actually... i used to donate a lot of money last year to church related things.. to missionaries who go out and do stuff and make no money. the only way they get money is from ppl donating... and i used to donate to a radio station as well... i probably donated up to $300-$400 last year... (maybe more, i'm not sure...) to that kind of stuff... then i stopped b/c i was trying to save $ and now well... I don't really support the church anymore... and just haven't found a good cause recently, though you all have brought up some really good ideas :) i've been thinking about this recently so i'm glad i saw this thread :D
