talking/acting generous while using someone else's money is pretty easy ( especially when behind a screen).. but what about when it comes to your own money..

talk is cheap.. since anyone can claim this and that while keeping a tight grip on their own wallet

from some of the posts i read in this forums.. it think there are a lot of generous people here..

would those people be generous enough to commit to a monthly donation of 1/4 -1/2 of their monthly income to those who are less fortunate? or maybe just $50-$100 every week??

show the members of this forums how generous you are .. please lead by example

please include confirmation receipt >>>(just name of the organization, date and amount will do)<<<

let's make a difference with action instead of more ranting about how generous you are..

there are many organizations to choose from.. so how about donating to an organization of your choice ?

Smile amazon has a long list of those organizations
https://smile.amazon.com/

some examples
https://donate3.cancer.org/
https://www.redcross.org/donate/donation
http://www.humanesociety.org/about/

let's hope we will have a lot of donation money coming to various organizations from Crunchyroll users.. since we have a lot of generous users here right ?

let's keep this thread going as long as the "random picture thread " or something :)

anyone would like to make the 1st donation?

Sketchy thread is sketchy. Anyways, I've run a $20 monthly donation to the ASPCA for years now, but I don't trust the Red Cross or the Humane Society.

ASPCA has the same horror story as RedCross and Humane Society..

even the local church or charity can have a horror story..

i just listed some examples.. smile amazon has a long list of organizations that you can go through

I don't even have enough money to keep myself afloat. I don't donate.

I don't trust all the organisations to begin with.

don't worry about it....

I'm just asking the "generous" people of this forums.. since from the posts i'm reading there are a lot of them here..

the max i can donate this month is probably $20.. but let see if anyone will make the first donation.. or maybe it's all talk..

Why the need to show money donations? I doubt that'll get anyone a sainthood. The usual is to donate time, objects or money if you can without shouting it from the rooftops and get on with life.

I donate clothes when I can.

But I don't collect receipts for that.

Post receipts huh...?

Posted 1/11/17
The vast majority of my Amazon purchases go to Amazon Smile (to the "Child's Play" charity).
I ended up buying a few Blu-Rays, an English version of "The Housekeeper and the Professor", and a Battlefield 1 Xbox One S (for my cousin who requested one) ... I donated a whopping $1.81 from the $362.94 that I spent (before taxes).

But this is the same reason why I don't donate to larger charities in general; as it's less obvious (to me) what they're using their donations with. I have a reoccurring donation to the Raleigh Rescue Mission and the SPCA of Wake County. I won't disclose the amounts since it shouldn't matter. I try to volunteer time to the Raleigh Rescue Mission (either picking up food from RDU and taking it to their central office or by testing the donated electronics). I tend to repair electronics/computers that are repairable on my own dime, seeing as most of them are still generally good (sometimes only needing a hard drive or a few components to a monitor).

I tend to suggest that people donate at least some free time to local charities. Not only will you see why some of these people got on the streets (and will help some of those who are blind to reality to gain some compassion for their fellow human beings) but you also get to meet some really cool people you wouldn't normally see otherwise. Whether you do it for yourself or for those around you, I'd still suggest giving it a try at least once or twice.

I don't keep receipts and am very selective about what charities I donate to, because a lot of them skim a lot of the top... which is shady...
Last donation was a cart load of footballs and basketballs to Toys for Tots--seeing as how everyone and their mothers unload toddler toys and dolls on the trucks, neglecting the underserved tween/teen age group. While the Marine Corps fills in for underserved groups, it's still sad to see. The cool thing though: a manager at WallyWorld gave me a price override on everything, so it only ended up being about $150. I don't care what you say, sometimes Wal-Mart employees are boss.

I make donations through the charity auctions at conventions that I attend. In some cases, 100% of that money goes to the charity, but in other cases, it either goes directly back to the con to pay for the next year, or the con skims some off the top and then gives a certain amount to the charity. I donated $1K to Make a Wish last year and $2K to the charities that Animazement was sponsoring. It's nice when it's fully deductible. Makes donating worth it.
