No, I don't give enough. Something I do that is really more of a help to my family is to donate several bags of really nice clothing and goods to the Disabled American Vets every time they come through my neighborhood every 5 weeks. This is a help to us in getting rid of our "stuff" (I am a hoarder) so really we're not making a sacrifice with giving these things away. Plus it's a tax write off.
Sometimes I do little secret things to help an individual or a family. Not enough of this either.

I donate in many ways but I always wish I could do more.
Of course the American Cancer Society is my Number One and I purchased items the Hope Lodge had on their Christmas Wish List and delivered them. On January 8th 2009 my son and I are going to Sam's club to purchase more items that he wants to choose and donate and then we will go to the Lodge to deliver them.
I am also a supporter of the Epilepsy Foundation and at least twice a year I collect clothing and items they request, alot of my own and then I ask others if they may have some things they would like to part with? I usually end up with 3-4 large green bags full.
I donate time right here because I love the site and it helps me use my background in a non-professioanl manner.
St. Jude's Childrens Hospital is another one I donate to yearly and never do we turn down a request for Crohn's Foundation.
Helping supply our local food shelf is another one we do.
It is in the giving that you receive the greatest satisfaction.
Keep it up everyone. It is not how much you give but that you did help in some small way.

Of course Toys for Tots, I use to do that all the time when My children were small. they would pick out a gift they would like and then we would go to the bank to put it in the colection barrel.............
Extremely important project.
My hubby is right there to buy the Christmas Return Address Seals that come by the mailbox full.............especially if it is veteran related.
