Charity is a Personal Matter

Posted: 11/07/2003 in Politics

Charity should be done by people, not governments.

Whether you choose to give to S. California fire victims, victims of 9/11, soldiers fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, or the Children’s Wish Foundation, giving is a good thing to do. Aside from getting psychic rewards (makes you feel good to help those in need), the practical side of the matter is that most donations are tax deductible. And if you are shopping for a new car, like I am, I found a great site that does all the work for you.

All you have to do is pick a charity you want to donate to, and complete a simple application online. A rep will contact you to complete the transaction, and they will arrange to pick up your vehicle. You can’t get any simpler than that! So, in essence, what goes around, comes around. When you give to charity, you receive a tax write off!
