If you had $1,000 which you had to use "charitably" before the end of the year .... how would you use it?

I would divide it up between a bunch of different charities. I would give 100 to cancer research, 200 to stem cell research, 400 to St. Jude's Children's Hospital. 100 goes to three different churches, my church at home and the two churches I went while in college.

Those are all great causes. I worked for a doctor once that worked with St. Judes. It's a great place!

Charity - Charity -Benefit Yourself and Everyone Else Simultaneously.
I would 've donated it to PM's Relief fund. Doing this, I'll also be benefited along with the Poor.

Hmm. I'll buy toys and sweets and go to as many orphanages as possible and try to give those less fortunate children a some happiness. There are thousands of children who doesnt even get a baloon or at least a decent meal on the Christmas day.

I would give to the food bank. Other charities are important too, but I like to support the bare necessities. Everyone needs to eat. A lot of the hungry people in America are children. It is really a good cause that I support whenever I can.

That is good. You are right. There are always hungry people.

Easy, half to my local church, for a special project, like famine relief overseas and half to the local food bank or other community resources. I would like to take care of my meighbors both near and far. I am also partial to the heifer project and trees for life.

I would donate to the MS Society,locally, as they've helped me before and I've seen what they do for MS Patients.

That would be a great thing to donate to as well. I know a couple of people with MS and I know that it would be great to see help for them.

Well being the animal lover that I am and feeling so sorry for the animals who have been abandoned/abused, I will donate the full $1000 the the humane society.

I'm sure they could really use it, especially with the cold weather that we've had lately.

I would give it to groups who are collecting to help people during the holiday season. I would buy a lot of toys for Toys for Tots. I would find Angel Trees for children and the elderly and buy a lot of things on their want lists. I would donote food to the local food bank. There's also an organization where you pack shoeboxes for children, and I've always wanted to do that. Plus, I'd send something to our "adopted" son in Nicaragua.

Salvation army is always a good place to offer such a donation. They help so many people, especially during the winter months.

I'd buy as many gloves, socks, hats, scarves and blankets as I could and donate them to a homeless shelter!

If I had that money, I would buy some wheelchairs for the disabled and show them around to places they would love to go.

I think I would donate it to some food for the people project for a good Chrisstmas dinner with all the trimmings for the homeless and abandoned. It may be considered a one day stand but at least they can end a perhaps bleak year on a high note. I might even pitch in and help wash the dishes (something that I absolutely hate).
