I'm just curious what folks do as charity over the holidays, in addition to what you might regularly do. I tend to not donate to the larger national and international organizations, instead choosing to support local groups - everything from the local sport teams to the non-profits. During the holidays I try to do more for the kids that might need it. We always go through last year's coats and donate the ones that have been outgrown. I take my daughter to one of the stores that has the trees with ages of kids that need toys and let her pick one out. At my previous employer, we used to choose a family through one of the local support organizations and everyone would buy stuff to make a nice Christmas for them. My current employer doesn't do that, but a friend and I are going to do it together. We don't have a lot, but I figure that even if I have to cut back, we still should try to help another child have a happy Christmas. What do you do?
