Would you call yourself a charitable person? Do you donate money to any charity regularly, only when a major catastrophe strikes or not at all? Do you give your time to help others, in what way? Do you help homeless or needy people you encounter in any way or ignore them completely? Would you rather help animals or humans? I give on a regular basis but really only because my wife keeps up on it. I really wish we could donate a bit more of our time and energy to help people in need. How many altruists do we have here?

Yes but really not enough. But then again, there is no 'enough'.

What kind of things do you do Neslo? What is one thing you wish you would be doing?

I volunteer www.tzuchi.org which, avoiding FRAT, is basically the Taiwanese Red Cross. We donate a monthly amount to Tzu Chi and for particulare disasters give more. Myself and my wife's family volunteer - personally I drive doctors, dentists and nurses on medical outreach missions, play guitar and sing at places like the yearly holiday party at a local homeless shelter, and speak to the Tzu Chi youth group a few times a year (its like sunday school kinda).

Jeeper - that sounds really great. Higher - You sound like a good person. I'm sorry to hear about your tough times. I hope things turn around for you soon. I do believe good things happen to good people. Hopefully you have some people close to you to lean on a bit. Otto - Hell yea that counts. You sir are a giver!

Thanks TeamCup. Tzu Chi has really helped me. I know its the standard speech (and FRAT) but giving to others has educated myself and led me to the Bright.

I'm not a charitable person AT ALL. If the Rich White Fucker gave me a choice of either pressing a button which would give me one dollar and at the same time kill some starving child in Africa, or press a button that saved that child, I could quit my dayjob as I'd be pressing that money button like it was going out of fashion.

Nope, I donated to a charity that my friend was doing volunteer work for but I really thought it was a lost cause. My family does give out a scholarship every year, but I don't even vote on which applicant gets it anymore.

Yes, I mostly donate money, relatively small amounts spread out to a lot of causes. I'll put in more time volunteering when I have it!
