Tithing Tithers Who Tithe Tithefully

Guess what, kittens?

My federal refund has been deposited into my bank account. YAY! As you know, I issued forth the challenge of donating 10% of our tax refunds to our favorite charities.

This morning I gave money to the Washington Animal Rescue League and DC's Food and Friends. I am planning to throw some pennies at one more organization this evening. I can't from work, because its website is blocked by the Evil Firewall of Doom. *sigh*

Once I make that donation, I will have met the requirements of the 10% Refund Challenge! YAY!

If you'd like to join the cool kids (Earl Cootie and Mel) over there on my sidebar, donate 10% of your tax refund to your favorite charity (or my favorite charities). Then, send me an email or leave a comment on teh blog. The drawing for the fabulous (yet to be determined) prize will be held on April 15th.

On your mark.
Get set.

    I've tried donating to Food and Friends, but every time I try their website says my credit card is bad. I've never had this problem anywhere else. Then it still charges me a $1 transaction feee. I've tried contacting the people and F&F but never got a response. Argh. Guess they won't be getting my 10%.

  2. I guess if I don't get a refund, I can't be one of the cool kids...We always have to pay... :(

  3. IF I get a refund (IF I ever sit down and do the taxes -- 2 states's worth of taxes, again, is just way too much math for my brain), I will be donating to the charity of my own making: my debt. With any luck, next year I can donate to a much more worthy organization.
