    hello,
    just for curiosity i´d like to know how many of the members here donate something from their money for good causes.
    i think everybody who has some money left should donate for other people that have not so much or even nothing.
    or donate money for animal and environment protection.
    i ask this right now because yesterday my wife brought an injured sparrow home and now we try to get him healthy again.
    that reminded me to donate some money to www.nabu.de (Nature And Biodiversity Conservation Union).
    for christmas i always donate for homeless and poor people, but there i don´t donate money but food.
    and when in our small town are events for children or disadvantaged persons i donate as well so that they can have a nice time and fun even when they don´t have any money.
    i think we should never forget although we have a very good life right now it can change from one day to the other and than we would be happy if other people would take of us as well.
    and in my opinion animals and environment should always be treated well.

    greets, darkstar69

    yes, i like to donate. but i only like to donate when i know the funds are actually helping and not getting eaten up by a charity's administration. like last night i donated to the pakistan flood victims when i was paying for my ebay purchases. on the screen it mentioned that ebay was covering the charity's expenses so all the money you donate really goes to help. i liked that.

    I give a few bucks to little kids who beg on the road. Either that, or I buy them some food. When I do make it big however..I will probably set something up to get them off the streets with a good charity run trust or something like that..but with the money that I make now, a few bucks is all I can afford.

    i like micro investments because the people really want to help themselves and just need a little boost to get on their feet. plus you are laying the framework for them to support themselves for the rest of their lives.

    I only donate to the smaller local innitiatives. All these big charities blow 90 % of the money anyway ...

    yes, i donate, not too big amounts, but quite a few times to very different causes: orphanages, homeless people (i also prefer to buy them some food what Ramsweb said above), to people in my country who lost their home because of flood, Yéle Haiti...

    darkstar69 do you believe in the law of attraction? Because I can see how you are giving out thanks, its a very common practice to give out "love"

    School supplies for orphanages. You can get a lot of stuff with a good combination of staples coupons, $20 can supply one kid for a year and you save a lot when you buy in bulk. My sister is much more noble, she runs a small farm for the homeless to grow food in.

    Donating to charitable causes comes off of your taxes, everyone should do it. Don't donate to a big one either, 50% of the profits or more will go to the company.
