Dear Poll: Do You Give to Charities Over the Holidays?

Christmas is the season of giving, but do you pass along your generosity to those less fortunate than you and your loved ones? I know not everyone is in a financial place to give money to charities, especially this time of year, but there are many other ways to give back to the less fortunate. So ladies, tell me, do you give to charities over the holidays?

I give money and volunteer throughout the year. Need doesn't stop because the holiday season is over and I enjoy making a difference and giving my time to help others.

i don't pin-point the holidays as my time to donate - i like to give a little throughout the year.

I give to charities all year round. Every month I donate money to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

I give year-round to the Disabled Veterans and Paralyzed Veterans so it's really no different this time of year although I try to give more, if I can.

Shugah, not to be a downer but a lot the time those people are doing community service, I think.

I donate to my favorite charity, Chio Cares (www.chiocares.org). It helps families in the Delaware Valley who are in need. 100% of the proceeds go to those families.

I can't seem to walk by those people who stand outside in the cold ringing bells for hours on end. If I have cash on me, I make sure to put something in...those people are donating their time and maybe even risking their health to collect money for the unfortunate. The least I can do is give some change that would have probably been spent on something meaningless anyway!

I do make donations every year when I'm able to, although not necessarily at the holidays. I have several people in my world who I keep an eye on and tend to who I make my 'donations' to - if you want to call it that.

I do happen to donate during the holiday season, although one should not feel charitable only during this time. Charities and people in need are around all year.

I try to donate if i can. But today one of my friends told me she had been displaced by her abusive husband over the weekend so i gave her my money that i make by filling out online surveys. It wasn't a lot, but it will feed her and her children for a few days. I knew i was holding onto that money for a reason and when i heard he cut off all funds, i knew right then that was why.

The school I teach in does a lot of charity drives around the holiday season. We have a year-round food drive, which I'm always bringing in items for. In the months of November and December, we do a holiday toy drive and a coat drive. And I always donate to both. I also buy at least one gift for an underpriveleged child each year too, from our "Giving Tree" at work.

I donate year round when I can. During the holidays money is usually tight, so I donate clothes or food. This year for work we did a secret santa, but instead of gifts for each other we bought toys that reminded us of the person we pulled. It was funny seeing why people got certain things. THe holidays shouldn't be the only time people think of others, but at least it's something. I do try to do more around this time, just because of the holidays and when you have nothing it's a ugly constant reminder of what you don't have.
