My dh and I had this debate. It's pretty bleak out there and everyone is asking for money. I was only curious about what others thought.

I donate clothing every year. I gave a $25 donation to a charity last year that the Chicago Tribune was associated with. MISTAKE!! I found out that 50 CENTS of my money actually went to the charity. I will NEVER do that again. The only place I'll give a cash donation to once in a while is the shelter my mom works at.

I sponsor a child in Africa and have for the last 8 years- that 21 dollars a month is about all I can afford to spend right now. I usually donate to St. Judes once a year when my husband gets his bonus but it looks like all of that money is going to have to go towards the credit card debt we've piled up this past few months.
