Do you donate regularly (monthly, once a year, ...) to charities? Who do you support?
A lot of people say that if they would win some great amount of money, they would donate to the charity. I am wondering how many people donate without winning the money. Do you maybe volunteer (offering your time is also a great way of help).
I used to do lots of volunteering though haven't done any since we moved to another province last year as I've been completing a degree, beginning a job search, and taking care of a 4 year old! Hopefully soon I can line something up.
I used to volunteer with elderly people with Alzheimer's and dementia at a nursing home. It was very rewarding and I really enjoyed it. I also did volunteering with a camp for children with disabilities and it was lots of fun but also VERY draining and I don't think I could do it again unless I had nothing else going on. Before we moved I was looking into volunteering with the SPCA though honestly I'm not sure I would do well there, I think I'd get too emotionally attached. I do make a monthly monetary to the SPCA though. And next month I'll be donating my hair to the Canadian Cancer Society, finally, after growing it for almost two years.
I think I'd really like to do volunteering with local refugees when I've got some time to set aside for it. I'd also like to donate more to the Canadian Cancer Society if my budget allowed.

Is it cancer research or feeding children that most empowers you through donating to their causes? Please pick one or two that are important to you and possibly why.

I give to charities, but know what makes me mad? When you give to one and they share your information with a zillion other charites. Then your phone rings off the hook with folks begging for money to save the tree...
