enough money tht you yourself could live comfortably and provide and help your family, what types of charities or causes would you donate money or even time to? anything that benefits this world in any way, whether it be with communities, people, animals, nature.. anything like that is donating. actually, its helping out. how would you help out? what suffering or senslessness would you like to see end as well?

I am fortunate enough that my family and myself do not need to go out and work a 9-5 job and have a little extra income to help the poor. We pick a charity (one) and give regularly. With that being said... if everyone gave just a little the world would be a totally different place. If every American gave just $1/week (300 million people) that is $15,600,000 (15 and a half BILLION dollars). I would love to take a weekend and work for Habitat for Humanity building houses (God help the person that lives in a house I build hehe) to feel the warmth and goodness of giving back... not to self... make that a New Year's resolution. I would rather have good people over a corrupt government anyday!

Resolution - Plan - Action. Without a plan and action on resolutions there is no reason to make them in the first place.

If I have money, I would like to share it with the orphans, widows, senior citizens, disabled, and whoever is wanting or in dire need of help. God loves this kinds of people and I would like to be an instrument to do the will of God.

If I had the money, I would like to help organizations like the "Make A Wish" foundation, or the Jeff Gordon Foundation, the Pediatric Aids Foundation, and stuff like that. I would also like to find a way to help all of the senior citizens find a way to pay for their medications that so many can't afford. As for time, I would love to be able to help children with disabilities or special needs experience horses. There are very few places that offer that. I think it is a great cause. I have assisted at the Special Rodeos when I am competing at rodeos where they have these and the true enjoyment both me and my kids got from showing these kids rodeo, horses, and roping is a great thing. The way their eyes light up when you put them on a horse, it's incredible. I'd love to be able to do that here at my small ranch, but the funding just isn't out there, and I can barely afford to support my family right now.

thank you for your response, and i really think that the animal therapy, especially horses for kids with disabilities is a great way to help out. i know how you feel about wanting to help out, but just cant. hopefully things will be looking up for you soon, i wish you the best
