  1. Hey Bonne good thought. Mary and I have been donating to different charities for years We also have a group of unhoused individuals (no bank accounts) that we give cash to. If you two need some suggestions we would be glad to provide..I always told my donors give $$$ until you really feel good. Aren’t we lucky to be able to help others. A few of our acquaintances donate their SS check (they don’t need it) to different organizations.
