Do you give/donate/etc? Saw the other thread about CEO salaries, and was thinking about my wee town. There is no Red Cross/Goodwill/Salvation Army etc within about 20 miles here. We have a food bank. Our local little grocery store does a neat thing each year, and for the first time I "participated". They will bag up non perishables and other needed supplies (shampoo, soap, laundry stuff, home cleaning), and staple the receipt to the bag. They place all the bags in a section of the store, with a sign that they are for the food bank. If you so desire, you just grab a bag, put it in your cart, and at checkout, they enter the price, you pay, and they give you the receipt from the bag. They then take the bag and place it in the food bank bin. All of the bags are $5-$10, and the contents are printed on the receipt. The food bank is local, and serves local people. My goal this year is to grab a bag each time I go to the store. Figure if they go through the trouble to make it this easy to donate, I may as well participate. I thought it was a pretty neat idea. They've done this for as long as I remember, this is just the first year I'm able to do something though.
