    Merry Christmas everyone! Since charity is a big part of the meaning of Christmas, what's your favorite charity? Mine is St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. I like to make donations whenever I can. What's your favorite charity to donate your time and/or money to?

    Mine is (are) Wounded Warrior Project (& Independence Fund).

    The St. Jude commercials certainly tug on my heart, too.

    I am partial to Samaritan's Purse and Heifer International. I've also been know to donate to Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis.

    A lot of my time goes to my church. I don't know why it is such a struggle to get people to give a little bit of their time to help out.

    Besides the non-profits I work for? I'd pick Free the Slaves.

    USO for me, having been currently serving 15 years, 5 combat deployments, numerous overseas tours, this organization has helped in numerous ways. I missed the birth of my first child, but I got to see him born on skype, and that was at a USO in Afghanistan. The do great things for our military!

    I have to say my local church. After that, I guess it would be the Salvation Army.

    I don't donate money, but I do very frequently volunteer at church events. We often have dinners for the needy, and clothing drives. My wife and I are on a few different committees, but we don't donate anything outside of the weekly collection bin.

    We don't make a ton of money ourselves, otherwise we would donate more money, but we are more than happy to physically help others.
