Carol Kirshner at Dollar Philanthropy reflects on giving when the family budget is tight:
With that said, what areas of life do you feel blessed or fortunate? Do you have a talent or a gift? Do you get along well with kids, the elderly or animals? Do you have a few extra hours? Do you have a few extra dollars?
Remember, it is not the amount that matters. It is the fact you act.
Where do you have abundance and how will you share it?
