This is what 10% can do.
I don’t care what religion you are, THIS is a great idea.
The Bible talks about the tithe of 10%, but we didn’t like the idea of handing over 10% of our income to a church with no idea what they would use it for. Plus our schedules have been to crazy to make it to church in a long time. So we started doing this. We save 10% out of our all of our paychecks and any physical money we receive or win. Every few months we donate that money. We prefer to make a donation of things we bought, so we know what the money is being used for. And it feels damn great to fill your car with a ton of stuff that you know if going to help people.
This was 3 months of our 10%. Just some of what we were able to provide for the local shelters. This was more than 4 shopping carts full of food and hygiene products. Plus diapers, batteries, and light bulbs.
CALL FIRST. They can tell you what they really need right now. We were able to get some things we would have never thought of.
10% is a reasonable amount. And you will not believe how much it adds up if you stay consistent. We’ve been doing this for a year, and we’ve been able to make multiple large donations. Just imagine if more people started doing this. How many people could we help just by giving up a little bit off every pay check? We did this even when we were having money issues, because this was important. You get back what you give.
PASS THIS ON. WE COULD DO A LOT WITH 10%.
