How To Stretch Your Donation Dollar

It's GivingTuesday and that means it's time to send a few dollars to a movement, mission or cause you believe in. Most givers consider causes that have been a part of their lives for months or years such as giving to cancer, prostate or heart research. Others give to the local community agencies to finance shelters for the homeless. Still, Others are moved to contribute to #CrowdFunding causes from friends, coworkers, business associates, and relatives. One thing is certain, there is a great and dire need for your support.

Many put off giving because they don't realize how far a few dollars can go. Here are some examples

1. $2.50 can buy a loaf of bread and feed a household for a day.

2. $5 can buy 2-3 gallons of gas for one food truck feed hundreds in one week.

3. Donating one used car can net $1500 t0 $4000 and feed the homeless in one community for a month.

4. Donating a coat can save a life on a bitterly cold night.

5. Giving a $20 bill to a street musician can help him pay his rent and keep him off the streets

6. Giving to shelters can help lower the crime rate, save on hospitalization resources, tax dollars for victims of crime and incarceration, maintain or improve property value and thus improve the economy overall.

Giving is no small thing. And as they say, what goes around comes around exponentially. That said, make #GivingTuesday something really special for you and yours. Find out for yourself the truth behind these words... "There is more happiness in giving than in recieving"

It's all for the children.
