2FD 035: Charity and Giving

Do you ever ask yourself why, when or how much to give to charity?

There are limitless ways you can give your time and money for great causes and trying to hash out the choices can be difficult. Some people need to see the impact of their giving in order to feel compelled to give whereas others perform the act in a no need-to-know fashion, putting their trust in the cause.

It’s interesting to see how many people with large amounts of wealth tend to find themselves involved with philanthropic efforts in order to live fulfilling, meaningful lives. However, a happy life of giving can also be obtained right where you are today. CHA-CHING!
