BLAST! I knew I had seen that before...and searched the forums for the reference...but being a little narrow-minded, didn't think to look at the FAQ...although I imagine it is quite a bit of an FAQ...

THANKS...Hatter!

I find that my local stores offer me many opportunities for charity that requires little effort and low cost. Which I think is a key to getting people to be more charitable on a regular basis. To give a list of regular ways I donate that are easy that might be useful if done in your area:

I am an avid Amazon shopper so I ensure I use Amazon smile

The Cabela's near me has a feature where you can round up your purchase amount to the nearest dollar and I use it every time I go. ( this donates to the fish and forest service a vital and under funded program )

The local dollar store has a box out for you to donate items purchased at the store many times a year including back to school or the holidays. If I am under budget any time the box is there I push my purchases up to my budget limit to add a few items

The local PetsMart has a donate feature on their touch pad to donate to local shelters I believe ( or a pet based charity ) and I use it anytime I am not over my pet food/toy budget for the month ( Yes sometimes I do not donate because I am spoiling the furry kids )

Finally, for around ten dollars you can put together a bag of essentials for any homeless person that might ask for money. That way you can give them something useful even if you don't have the cash to give at the time. I try to keep one in my car on a regular basis but sometimes it gets left at home due to me not wanting it left to bake in the summer heat.

Fighting what you cannot see, will only lead you to lash out with violence towards everyone. Know your enemy, and you may find yourself a friend.

You can act real rude and totally removed

This entire week is solid work for me, so unfortunately I'm unavailable to do any volunteering. I've decided to donate any tips I make this week to a fund set up to help employees from my chain in Texas / Florida get back on their feet. :) Work for those who need help while I work for my boss xD

I am one with the Force, the Force is with me.
I fear nothing, all is as the Force wills it.

I'll be doing yard work for many of the elderly in my neighborhood. Particularly raking leaves.

It took awhile for me to figure out what I will do for this day of service. Yesterday I signed up to volunteer at my local food bank. Something that I do quite regularly. But I didn't remember that I had another event to go to during those hours. Now I have decided I will spend 1-2 hours before work cleaning up trash in El Cajon. El Cajon is a poor part of San Diego with the considerable homeless population. Additionally ourbhomeless population is suffering from hepatitis A in large numbers Naturally trash makes its way onto the grounds and into the trees and bushes. I'm hoping my work will inspire others in the city of El Cajon and those around the place in which I work to keep the city cleaner and stop the spread of disease
