When your at the checkout and the cashier asks you....

If you would like to donate a $1 to the march or dimes or whatever charity is raising money at the moment... do you donate? or pass on the donation?

  • No. I pick and choose which organizations I want to donate to.

  • I have at one time or another. Usually no. If I donated everytime I went to the store I'd be broke.

  • Depends on the day. If I am at the grocery five times that week i usually donate a few times.

  • We have charity donations budgeted. The only time I do at the cashier is for the food bank at the grocery store. Our largest chain store here matches 1:1 for every $25000 donated each year. Plus even one dollar makes a difference at the food bank. It is run by the Salvation Army and it's volunteers. The city provides the space free. So no overhead. If I give a dollar..it is truly a dollar that goes toward food.

  • I regularly give to a couple of other charities, so I bypass the checkout charity requests.
