How Much Do You Give to Charity ?

I don't share this information publicly. It's not about trying to be secretive, it's about 2 things.

1. If I tell you how much I give and you think it's a lot. You will compare yourself to me and think, "I could never give that much. So why even bother. My small donation will mean nothing to this charity." You may feel shamed into giving more than you can afford and that's not what Philanthropy is about.

2. If I tell you how much I give and you think it's not very much. You will think that maybe you are giving too much. Or that I shouldn't be writing a blog about Philanthropy. Or that it's okay if you give the same small amount.

We all have different incomes and different challenges and different life circumstances. So instead a prefer to not speak specifics in order to encourage you to give generously. Not because you have to but because you want to.
