TIME TO THINK ABOUT EXTRA CHARITY

My Christmas charities are the scholarship fund at UT El Paso. The gift of an education lasts a life time.


ALTERNATIVE GIFTS IS ALSO A GREAT CHARITY

This time of year I look to what ever they are doing for Nicaragua. Every year it is something more than feeding the poor. It is about sustainability. In past years I have given such things as baby chicks to help them create a chicken farm. I have given special stoves for cooking which limits damage to the rain forest by using less wood. The stoves were made locally in Nicaragua by women who were given money to start the business. Any program which creates dependency is bad. True charity empowers people to self sufficiency. Of course there are a handful of exceptions - but not many.
