Do you donate? You explain how you give to charity

We asked you if and how you donate to charity – here’s what you said!

I generally don’t donate in cash form because I’m always concerned about where my money actually goes. I think in most cases only a very small percentage of what I give actually goes towards the cause.

Instead I:

  • Volunteer at soup kitchens
  • Give my unwanted items to charity shops instead of putting them on ebay
  • I’ve helped out in animal shelters
  • Built a few websites for charities free of charge
  • Adopted pets instead of buying them

Just to name a few.

So anything that I can do more directly is my preferred method of helping.


Same as Ordog, I Volunteer at a local charity shop
