Are you fond of donating?
« on: August 27, 2011, 05:52:08 PM »
Personally, I'm not that fond. If there was no possible consequence in the afterlife for not donating, I'd probably never do it. I don't really like very much the idea of giving someone something and not getting anything in return. When it comes to love, I've already had more than my fair share of that from selfish crazies...

I'll donate if the cause is worthy and this site Needs to stay up. So I'll donate when I have some spare cash.

A few years ago (back when I had a lot more money) I donated $80 to the [wiki]Electronic Frontier Foundation[/wiki]. Gave me a cool tshirt in return, so I technically bought an a really expensive shirt. But I think they do good work.

Yes, I like the EFF as well. I have donated (joined) the ACLU in the past since I think they do important work. Also to annoy the hell out of my parents, but that was just icing on the cake lol.
Where you come from is gone, where you thought you were going to was never there, and where you are is no good unless you can get away from it. Where is there a place for you to be? No place... Nothing outside you can give you any place... In yourself right now is all the place you've got.

yes and its a problem. i tend to give too much and i'm very gullible with homeless people. my father has yelled at me about it, about giving too much money.

now, im more careful about it and i say no sometimes. like at the store they ask if you want to donate as they ring you up. its kinda rude, i say no or hit the button no. its the guilt behind it that gets to me and i get teary eyed thinking some people don't have what i have. i donate when i can.

I donate regularly to one charity.  It's a very important part of my life.   :smiley:

I can't really put money into my paypal right now, apparently my debit card does not allow online transactions. For my own safety I suppose. Maybe I should find a card used mainly for online services. But I'd donate if I could, I like the appear hidden option.

not really...
I mean there has been 3 or 4 occasions where I gave a few bucks to a beggar.
Another time I gave $20 to this guy who was representing MADD inside Staples (couldn't help it, he was right in my face as soon as I entered the door....)
and they got me a few times with the whole "would you like to donate a dollar for *insert charitable organization here* today?!"

that's about it....I need my money.
...and what you decide to do every day, you will be a good man - or not.

i hate giving cash to people. I'll drop my loose chhange into charity boxes, and I spend cash in a British Heart Foundation charity shop, they always got good CD's I want to buy, but you get a lot of charity muggers in the town centre that you just want to scream at, I'll give you change when I got change. One time they actually followed me to the bank. Not even muggers do that. Those gap year posh kids make me sick, with them pretending to care, nothing to do with the massive commission they get, they promise you. Gave them money for a water thing once, checked it up on the off chance, most of it went to funding those pricks to wander the streets hassling folk. That's just not right. Got more respect for the drunks that tell you they were in the Crimean War.
I'm gonna send money to this website for it's upkeep.
This afternoon, I swear.
