    I was wondering if anyone did cross-stitch projects for charity? If so what do you make and what charity do you support? I found a website that has addresses for the different charities that accept cross-stitch projects for quilts, bookmarks and ornaments. CyberStitchers Cross-Stitch...

    How do you get information on a charity? What do you look for exactly before donating? I have several I'm interested in, but want to make sure they will use my donation wisely. Some are smaller, local charities. Any information on websites that could help me would be great or articles that...

    I want to challenge myself this year to give to charity. I have in the past had good intentions to help the less fortunate or to give to a cause that I feel deeply about but haven't always followed through. So I had an idea this year to give 10% of my monthly savings budget, which in my case...
  12. Christmas
    I wanted to start this thread to see how others feel about donating this Christmas. I give to 3 local charities every month on a regular basis. I have a set amount that I donate to: Food Bank, Rescue Mission, and United Way. I work for a non-profit agency so we work closely with these...

    I would like some opinions on something I have been struggling with. If I buy a coat at a thrift store for five dollars that I can afford new, am I depriving someone of that coat who can't afford to buy it new. It may sound silly, but this really bothers me.
  14. Christmas
    If you donate to the Salvation Army at the Red Kettles are there requirements in how or what you give? Meaning can you only give cash money bills or checks? I looked on the site to find this info but found nothing specific. In addition to the other ways we give to charity at this time of year...

    Last night, I had a long discussion with my husband about a charity project in my region and its ethical ramifications. I thought I'd share some of my thoughts, and ask for your ideas. That's the project: In December, people pack 'food parcels' for community members in need. They are...

    Has anyone done this? We were going to operate it through the church, but our minister doesn't want us to store anything there. We've decided to meet there to knit, and possibly do other smallish handwork we can carry with us. But any sewing will be done in one of our homes and will operate...

    In my quest to slash the budget, I am reviewing both my tithe and my child sponsoring through Compassion Int'l. Besides the internal wrestling, I have a new concern... taxes. What will a $1,000 deduction in charitable contributions do to our tax results? We usually border between owing a...

    I was just wondering if anyone knits or crochets for charity on a regular basis? I used to, then stopped for a while, now I'm starting to again. Right now I'm concentrating on the troops and the animal shelter. Then I thought with Christmas coming it might be nice to do a few things for...
