Saturday 6: Charity

This week’s set of questions is about charity. It’s a topic that some of you might be comfortable with and others may not. This week’s quiz is from a religious-oriented website, and the answers you get might raise your eyebrows.

Sounds like an interesting set coming up, right?

1. What was the last organization you gave a monetary donation to? The local Salvation Army.

2. What was the last charitable thing you volunteered to do? I volunteered my time for an upcoming conference.

3. Someone you know comes to you in a bad situation and asks to borrow $10. Do you give them the money even if you think they might not give it back? Yes, I would give them the money. Paying me back would be nice but not necessary.

4. Take the quiz: How Charitable Are You?
scored 21, on a scale of 0 to 36. "Faithful Contributor. Your sense of charity and social justice is very tied to your faith. Your charitable actions spring from both your strong sense of compassion and your religious obligations. You look toward religious leaders for guidance in where to contribute and likely participate in church or house of worship fundraisers and volunteer activities. Read up on what your faith has to say about charity and giving or find a religious service agency."

5. Do you agree with the quiz’s results? Yes, I agree with the quiz results.

6. Should the United States do more to help its own citizens before helping people in other countries? I feel that the United States should do more to help its own citizen but that we should continue to help other countries also...spread the wealth (so to speak).
