  • I donated money to the hospital I work at during the radiothon-Seattle Children's. Check it out if you can. We had a 8 year old donate 21,000+ in honor of his friend. He set up a website for "brain bumps" How amazing is that?

  • I don't have a direct debit type thing to give to any certain charities, and I don't send out checks or anything like that - but I do donate old clothes and toys etc to some local charities who ship them elsewhere, and in supermarkets I feed the donation boxes regularly(I usually go for the animal welfare or helping children organisations.)

  • Not a charity, but I tithe every week at church and I know what the church does with their Food Bank, etc., so I think of it as "charitable giving". I also donate anything usable to Goodwill and do volunteer work whenever I can.

  • Oh, and the "why" is because I just went through a period of time being homeless and I will never judge those who are in need again!

  • We tithe and occasionally give to other charities. I especially like that at Kroger you can just add anywhere from $0.50 to $2.00 to your bill.
