    I love to knit and crochet things

    for charity. Usually for animal welfare and rescue charities.  I don't have any money to give them, so I figure the least I can do is donate my time and create things they can raffle off, or use in silent auctions.

    is the local food bank. If people are hungry, nothing much else matters. A few dollars donated to the food bank can be used to buy more than ten times that amount in food.

    I don't give jack to panhandlers

    who annoy me by trying to hit me up when I'm stopped at a traffic light. That's entrapment. And these bums will just take the $$ to score some dope or buy booze anyway. Giving them $$ just enables their dependency. Instead, toss them what's left of your Big Mac.

    that motivates me to go to work and be active during depression is if I start giving to charity. I haven't thought of which, but I'd just like to give to the temples and help down trodden people. Makes my efforts worth it for me.
