Do you love giving to other people? Do you give to poor and the needy? Do you participate in charity work? Can you consider yourself a generous person?

I am, too, and I have the likes of a 'martyr'. One cousin describes me as someone without a single wicked bone in my body. Of course she's wrong because I'm no saint. Sometimes I can be bad too.

I don't havemuch money yet because I don't have a good job but I do get some money and with it I buy a lotforfamily members and stuff. It really brings me joy to do that. :) I have done a little charity work befoe but not a whole lot. I guess U think i'ma pretty generous persn. I'd rather do something for someone else before myself.

Yes, I prefer to give than receive. I work for charities, although I can't afford to give a lot to the poor and needy, unless they're friends, in which case I would give them all I could whenever they needed help. I raise money for a local children's hospice and also for my local hospital which is threatened with closure just now. So, I would consider myself quite a generous person, yes.

I do like to give to charities and good causes. However, I will rarely give the change from my pockets to the homeless that I see waiting at the exit asking for change. I will however donate my clothing and shoes to homeless shelters (YWCA for women and children), and various domestic violence shelters. I haven't given to the church in quite sometime, but I will be getting back into that habit. I've also given things to the young single mothers at the church anonymously.

i am a very generous person and have been told that I'm kind and generous almost to a fault...I could never see myself NOT being a giving person though, I knwo all too well what its like to not have a place to sleep, food to eat, someone to confide in and trust, a shoulder to cry on etc etc so if I were to NOT be the way I am I definately wouldnt care for me much ya know....

I think that I do consider myself a generous person because I would help my friends who are in need the best way I can without asking for anything in return. I believe in good karma.

I think that I'm usually a generous person. I volunteer, I donate sometimes when I can, and in general I just give to people even if they couldn't technically be considered "needy".

Basically mine is a helping nature, I will give who ever what ever they ask me. I am very much generous person, for example. If i have 100 bucks in my wallet which i kept for my lunch. If some one asks me for a genuine reason, i dont even think about my lunch or my necessary. simply i will give that 100 bucks to him who asked me. that is my nature. Now you can only judge me how much generous person i am..

I'm always pleased when the opportunity arises for me to help someone out somehow and having the resources to provide that help is available to me.Generosity is karmic and never ever a waste of time or effort!

My entire family thinks I am too giving. Material things and certain amounts of money can be replaced in time. No big deal is my way of thinking. To give is the one thing I love about myself. I hope i never change this! I have a small amount of money from Mylot and they can do whatever they want with it. I am not on here for money.
