Charity?

Times are hard for people but do you give to a charity if so which one and how much? Or do you volunteer your time somewhere?

  • The Christian Childrens Fund. I started it like four or five years ago and sponser three children. So it costs me about 72 dollars a month. I've done other things that are more spur of the moment but thats my main one.

  • I used to give at salvation army until a mom here posted she had a friend who worked for them and she told her the employee's go over all the donations and take the good stuff home for themselves...what a bunch of shit! I am sad that I can no longer donate without worry that it is going home with employee's rather than the needy.

  • I found one that I really enjoy giving to especially since its fun for the kids and even people on a tight budget can do. https://wecanbuildanorphanage.com/# You get to chose what to pay for. Every paycheck I buy 5 things cause I am blessed with 5 healthy children. Last time we bought pieces of land and it only cost 4 dollars. Ive also voluntered at a domestic violence shelter but with a new baby I am just at home mostly.
