Hey warriors,

Even though this is quiet personal question and I'm not here for asking amounts or anything like that, but I wanted to know how much importance do you pay for paying charity? Do you do it at all?

I personally have high importance about it. It is nice to help others by giving money or in any other mean, like giving important knowledge or teaching.

    I give to one charity pretty much, great ormand street hospital. They done a lot for my eyes when I was young, if I'm gonna donate, I'd need some form of personal reasoning behind it.

    I pay my taxes in full, which is enough charity. But I also give regularly to St. Jude Children's Hospital.

    It's awesome you guys give charity. I don't personally need any reasoning for giving one, but I would be very careful to which charity organisation I would pay. There are of course those charities that try to even cheat people to get their money, but usually most charity organisation are quiet trustworthy.

      It's funny that you mention that. It's absolutely true, non-profits are often devious sons-of-bitches. I'd say that most are actually untrustworthy. The only difference between a for-profit and non-profit organization is tax regulations (USA) and nothing else. So careful background research should be done by the potential donor beforehand.
