    Charitable giving.

    Last Christmas I had asked for a charitable donation to be made to an African aid charity as a gift for myself. I didn't recieve it, so I decided I'd donate the $25 I got from my grandparents myself (I have yet to get around to it). Today's my birthday (18 woooh!), and I've just recieved a substantial amount from my parents. Taking ten percent out of that is another $25. That and the Christmas money is $50 all together and... that's a lot of money for me. I don't have a job (trying to find one though) and I'm wondering if this is what I should be doing, and if it'll make a difference. Or am I just being greedy?

    charity is important,
    but you're the only one who can decide how much you can afford.

    Technically speaking, I can currently afford everything I have. My parents take care of food, housing, etc. All of my income is disposable.

    Well i guess you hould inform yourself propüerly in what you are donating. (e.g. dont donate something in organisations providing food...donate into some organisation that helps the people to plant food...or shool)

    or you get involved with these organisations and travel down to africa...help to build up homes etc. A buddy of mine is currently somwhere in NorthA doing so. The organisation usually pays for food and shelter down there so you donmt have to worry about that...and what better way to learn something about an other country than to be there , in person ?

    Although i wouldnt do any of these things...youre young man...so spare the money and use it for YOUR future until you have the joy of welth...then you can donate...and much bigger donations
