    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 ...

    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.
