2008 Charitable Giving

A percentage breakdown of where I donated money during 2008. This excludes money I have deducted from my pay, which goes to a local women's shelter.

St Jude Children's Hospital 32%
Penn State University 21%
Cancer Charities (various) 16%
Scranton Rescue Mission 11%
WVIA FM 10%
La Salle Academy 5%
AIDS Fund 4%

I am a big believer in the work that St Jude Children's Hospital does; if anyone deserves help, it's children that are suffering from diseases like cancer. Us older folks have had a something of a chance to live decent lives, but children...well, to be cut down at such a very young age is one of the worst tragedies I can think of.
