So I work for a large multinational corporation that has a pretty extensive charity program. They do matching donations to almost any legit charity, via payroll deduction. I already did $30 a paycheck ($60 a month plus matching equals $120 monthly) to my local Planned Parenthood, and I just added a $30 a paycheck donation to the Southern Poverty Law Center, with matching that is $120 for them!

If you have a program like this at your employer, I urge you to check out if charities like this can be matched dollar for dollar. Also, it delights me to give away corporate money to these causes.

Now I just need to figure out how to build some volunteer time into my schedule.
