I feel obliged to support every charity that has something for sale at the counter such as bandana's for bandana day, daffodils for daffodil etc because I know that my $2 of $5 doesn't compare with what some people are suffering. There are a lot of good causes out there and when my friends jump on the bandwagon of something and want to be sponsored, I always help out. I don't have a lot of money so it's usually just $10 or so, but all money does add up, and if our hearts are in the right place, every cent counts. A lady at my church put it well once, she said generosity is giving above yourself, not above your means. If you're down to your last $5, it's probably not wise to donate it when you have kids to feed. But if you stumble across a few extra bucks every now and again, I suppose a donation wouldn't hurt.
