I've been pretty honest on here that when I took the traveling job it had a great deal to do with the money and that I made enough to catch up on debt, much of it acquired in the 8 months of disability in 2 years that made up 2006 and 2007. I've managed to fix my credit completely after being rated "poor" 2 years ago. There were several years I had to pay extra premiums on my homeowners because my credit was so bad. But that's not the point.
The point is that I've been trying to start giving back. My plan is that when I'm settled into this job I can move into tithing although it will be to charities rather than churches.
A blog that I found while not doing well that made me laugh aloud is Cakewrecks I've had them my reader for a while and have found they are consistently entertaining.
They have an annual 12 days of Christmas thing where every day counting down to Christmas they ask readers to donate, if able, $1 to a featured charity of the day. They pick really good charities and it's done through First Giving which should mean it's a safe way to give.
So, please join in if you can.
