Just a quick update on my charitable contributions. A few years ago, I made a promise to myself to increase my charitable giving. I knew many people who made less money than me. Those people never gave a second thought about donating to causes, however, I always did. I decided I needed to do better.
This year, my charitable contribution goal is $400. I increase this number by $100 every year. So far this year, I have already given $383!!! It's only August! I should easily make my goal of $400 for the year. Ten years ago, I would have thought it impossible to give even $50 a year. I was mired in credit card debt, student loan debt, etc.
I am very happy that I am fortunate enough to give money to charitable causes. I hope that my giving continues to increase over the years. It's my small way of making the world a slightly better place.
