Do you give to charity?

Do you support any charities or regularly volunteer/ donate for charity shops?

I donate a lot of my old clothing to various charities. When it permits, I donate money too.

Yes ... sometimes financially, sometimes I volunteer, sometimes through donations. It depends on the organization and what I am able to contribute at that time.

I finacially contribute to Amnesty International, although I wouldn't call it a charity, and occasionally do write those letters to prisoners of consciousness and the like. I am also involved in campaigns for global AIDS and poverty, such as The One Campaign and have volunteered my time with my local divisions. I also, when time permits although I must admit it has been a long time, volunteer with a church based group that works with local AIDs patients.

I have a hard time calling any of these things charities though. These are things that have more to do with justice and what is right, than charity.

Yes.

We tithe, support charities financially, donate items we no longer need (clothes, electronics, furniture, etc.).

i am a member of the cancer foundation, red cross, humanitas and my union does a lot for helping out with organize workers in poor countries.

I buy fair trade products ( when posible ) and organic/ecologic produced food.

I think what would be inappropriate is asking how much people give. That's not being asked.

I was talking to a "chugger" in town last week (the people who hound you for money) and he told me that people no longer give to charity and that's why he is "forced" to do his job. I don't think this is true.

I think the recent tsunami shows that people DO give to charity and do so very willingly.

as for me, yep I give money when I can, my time to those in need, and a warm smile to brighten the day of all that I meet each day
