Charity Piggy Bank: Belated September Update

I’m late in posting, but happily with automatic savings the piggy bank grows whether I’m paying attention or not! Herewith, a belated Charity Piggy Bank September update. In keeping with the blog’s theme, the charity piggy bank is a small way to make a difference in a big world (even on a budget). Here are the August totals:
  • Proportional giving: $34.75
  • Savings account interest, with thanks to ING!: $9.15
  • Rebates for BYO grocery bags: $1.60
  • Balance forward: $330.92
  • NEW TOTAL: $376.42

Today’s mitzvah: Consider creating a “charity piggy bank” to collect small sums for a year-end charitable contributions. I’m always interested in ideas for what I should do with this in December. It looks like I will be right around $500, which is a nice contribution (and makes me very happy since it involved so little work — this has been pretty pain free savings!)
