There are lots of ways to donate to charity. I give my unwanted things to a charity shop. I buy things from charity shops and I also lend money through micro financing. Via Kiva loans. I am also a member of the wildcare Australia inc so my membership is a donation. I also buy the Big Issue
I donate money to Unicef and Red Cross every month. They automatically debit a 20 dollars from my account every month. The way I see it is, even though, I am a young person in Uni, I am much more fortunate the others. When I donate that little bit, it contributes to a whole lot more, which can make a large difference in someone life. Also over time, that $20 can accumulate, make a big difference as well. To me, $20 is a unnecessary dinner out but to others it could mean life or death.
Yes, I donate but now only to 3 charities-I used to give to everyone who phoned me but got so sick of the repeat calls, that I stopped giving to all but my favourite 3, and they seem to phone me regularly.
There are so many people worse off than most of us, so I think it is important that we all spare just a small amount for our favourite charities.
I also have been volunteering in a Save the Children Shop, so I have been giving them upwards of 20 hours of my time, because they have no "middle man", are global, and more of the money therefore raised, goes where it is needed.

For many years I've sponsored a boy through World Vision. I loved the fact that we could write to him and he wrote back to us.
I have a regular donation set up with the Wilderness Society and I give to a few other causes when I can. When I have the time again I'd like to go back to volunteering for causes that matter to me.
I have, and I do...
I donate every year to various charities, and at Christmas we do a donation to charity in our kids names; typically to a chidren's charities. I also donate non cash items such as blankets, toys and clothing throughout the year. I have volunteered in the past, but not as much as I would have liked in recent times due to having small kids but I'm going to try and make more time this year now they aren't constantly feeding.
It depends on how much of the funds actually go to the cause in question. I generally donate blood instead.
I donate money and time to charities that help people to directly improve their lives.
I do believe it can make a difference to those who need it. I have in the past, and I will continue to do so when and where I can.

if it is authentic, yes I would, feels good to know I'm helping those who need help. Donating helps to lessen the global depression of people.
I donate money to Bible League
Yes, happily so to legally recognised Charities. Always in person, NEVER over phone or on computer.
When I was earning good money, I regularly donated to UNHCR, Save the Children and UNICEF, but now on a pension, I donate only when I can.
Ye - I have a direct debit for Red Cross each month. Also occasionally contribute to Oxfam, Medicine sans Frontiers and Community Aid Abroad. I am also part of a group who knit blankets for the homeless. I am not a very good knitter but even I can knit in a straight line, and they are sorely needed for street people.
Yes, I used too lot, but now we're not able to claim it back on our tax, so I can't donate anymore. And how much REALLY gets to the good cause anyway? But I do still donate my blood, every 3 months, & cloths to op-shops, & we also buy a lot of op-shop items, so that always helps.
