    Given your BH earnings, how many of you regularly donate to charities? I am thinking of donating monthly to a certain charity and was wondering if many of you do?

    It is good to give back to the world.

    About 15% of my gross income on a very regular basis. Mostly to one charity, but about 2% goes around after I've checked their ratings and make sure the majority of the money is going to causes and not the non-profit's board members.

    I've got 3 I donate monthly to and regular ad-hoc donations. It's important to understand where your money goes before donating, as many charities won't give as much as you think to the actual cause. You'll find most people who donate keep it quiet too, no-one that knows me would think I would donate to anything, lol.

    Nah not as yet, but once I have a steady income I will support something other than myself which does not pay most of the money to the people working at the charity. As someone else above me said.

    I gave a around 3k last year to the spina bifida association. They helped me when I was a kid, I'll never forget it.
