What Would You Do?

Rating: 3 votes, 5.00 average.
An article in our daily paper told how an employer gave each employee a $100 dollar bill and told them to "pay it forward". One employee said she was going to donate it to her churches Angel Tree, another donated to a charity for the homeless, another to a single mother with 5 children and one to a family where the mother had cancer and the family had very little insurance. 3 employees had not yet decided what to do with theirs. WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

    I would probably donate it to the local food pantry. They are running low on food right now and so many people are really in need. We can al survive without the gifts for the holidays, but we can't without the food.

    I would scrounge the sales ads and my coupon stash and turn that $100 into a larger value of food and home goods, and donate it to the women's shelter.

    however i agree that food is more important than gift
    then again
    Water is more important then food
    Donate to some organization to give clean water

    I would look at it this way, it wouldn't be mine to begin with. So I would give it to the church. It would belong to the one that provided in the first place.

    That was the whole idea - to pass it on to where it can help somone who is most in need. The church always knows where the greatest need is.

    Yeah, the pastor at the church up the road from me drives a Mercedes, (paid for by the Church) - I guess in his eyes, that's where the greatest need is.

    Yeah - I know. We have one in particular like that here. Luckily, they aren't all like that. At least, I would like to think they aren't.

    Well....$100 huh? That really doesnt go a long way these days.....but I do not a church in the small city of Stanardsville (about 5 miles from my home) and they open their doors every tuesday night - any and everybody who is hungry can come in and have dinner!! I think what I would do is talk to the people at the local food lion here (I go there enough and they know me well) and ask them that after I got all the groceries rang them up and used the coupons that I would have used - I would ask them if they would consider adding more food to the project then take all that food up to the church and hopefully it would be able to supply enough food for a couple Tuesdays and if there was money left over give it to them too.

    I am blessed enough to work for a company that matches dollar for dollar what I donate to a non profit. Also, they also donate $250 bi annually for a nonprofit that I volunteer 25 hours or more. So I think I might volunteer 25 hours and ask for matching grant for one non profit...although I tend to prefer those dealing with children.
