Last week the Red Cross (USA) released survey results today about Holiday Giving. They found that:
while the economy is still difficult for many people this year, the majority of you still expect to maintain strong levels of charitable giving.
- Eighty six percent (86%) of you say your personal finances are the same or worse than last year.
- Nearly three out of four (72%) of you will be donating more or about the same to charity this holiday season as they did last year.
- Nearly six in ten (58%) feel that because of the economy, it’s more important this year to give something to charity.
- Perhaps more fascinating is that you are not too sure about giving socially
