Giving back to charity fundraising organizations

"Donating to charity fundraising organizations is a great way to give back to the community. Nonprofit groups and volunteer organizations do so much to help the struggling communities all over the world, but they can't do it alone. Every successful member of any community shares the responsibility of helping the less fortunate and contributing to the common good. WKBW, a Buffalo, NY news channel, narrates the story of a local resident who embodies this responsibility all too well: One full grocery store, three minutes, anything you can fit in a cart, you take home for free. That is exactly what Hamburg resident Chuck Bullock won a chance to do. He donated to the United Way while checking out at Tops last month, and out of thousands of entries, he was chosen to win a shopping spree. Chuck chose his wife and good friend to shop for him."

How to become truly charitable
