30 Days of Honesty (and one dare) - Day 9

Day 09 — When the cashier gives me this amount of money for change I know it’s too much money to dump in the charity bucket…

Okay, so, I'm an a-hole here.  I don't give my change to charity.  Not $5, not 5 cents.  

It's not for lack of being charitable - honestly, there are some really worthwhile organizations out there.  I just prefer to choose them for myself, and give in the way I feel most comfortable.
Most recently, I came across an organization called Tubie Friends.  They provide stuffed animals with feeding tubes to children with feeding tubes.  With my son's inevitable move toward becoming a tubie himself, this organization really tugged at my heartstrings.  I've found ways to give to that organization and I'm happy to do it.  But a nondescript jar by a cash register?  Not my style.

And just in case you're interested in helping that particular cause, here it is.  It takes so very little to do so very much good. 


  1. I think this makes you not an a-hole, Caroline.

  2. No, that's actually pretty smart. You know that your money is going to a charity that you actually support and trust.

    1. that's what I tell myself, anyway :)
