I love to support charities and I know that there is so much need. I do all that I can do to support charities but have a limited budget. How much do other people spend a year on supporting charities and how many charities do they support?

  • I support my three favourite charities.

  • I don’t really have a budget, but I like to help where possible. I donated mo eye to a local animal rescue, I’ve donated food to another animal assistance and I’m about to knit a heap of blankets and dog coats to donate.

  • These days there are so many fund raisers at the shopping centres such as cancer research , etc and also a volunteer at the local church and everyone has a chance to give whatever they can afford. There are no rules when it comes to charity .

  • I have a number of charities I support each year and will give to others by way of small donation etc if I feel I can afford it.

  • My favourite organisation to donate unwanted items to is St Vincent de Paul.

  • We don’t keep track of how much we give, our favourite is buying gifts for the kids and leaving them under the Christmas tree at target or big w.

  • i give here and there. do a few vinnies runs

  • At the moment we don’t, struggling ourselves. Used to sponsor 2 world vision kids and supported rspca, Red Cross etc

  • I dont have a set amount that i spend on charieties and i tend to choose the ones that have something to do with what effects my loved ones most at that time i have cash spare to donate.

  • I shop at all of the local opp shops and I donate throughout the year but I dont have a specific amount or number

  • I like to support the Royal Flying Doctor. They do such an amazing work.

  • One main one, we had a small business and naturally were constantly bombarded with requests, however now we are between gigs after working 10 years without a day off, we have budgeted to give a certain amount to charity each year, We support PTSD for returned service people, however if the children in the street have a raffle for school we also support these but will not buy raffle tickets over the phone or donate at shopping centres or at our door, many collectors are paid to collect and we like to see where our money is going, we donate several thousand dollars every year which is a considerable amount for us, It was hard to start with to say no, but i just say we have a budget for charity and we have contributed to our selected charities. I think that there are so many good causes that it gets so hard to help everyone.

  • I really like the red cross! Its a good organisation!

  • I have 2 charities that I have supported for years and donate regularly to these.groups. Then there are the Red Cross and the Salvos that door knock each year and I like to give to them and of course the local community. Don’t over stretch but give what you can and spread it around!

  • I try to support local charities such our local RSPCA, special needs school and our schools buy buying and selling raffle tickets. We don’t have a lot of extra cash, so throughout the year I like to donate to others with goods – canned food etc for charities for food drives, a gift to put under the wishing tree, and toys and books for our local children’s ward. It varies each year.
