As we approach the Christmas season many of us look inside ourselves to consider how we can help our fellow man. This is truly a time of giving and Americans are more generous than most other nations. I am not just talking about aid given by the federal government, but donations by average people who often open their pocketbooks when others are in trouble.
I read a heartwarming story about an organization that received nearly $3 million from Americans to help reduce their debt. Unfortunately their debt is fastly approaching $8 trillion. If you have guessed that the organization is the United States and the Treasury Department accepts gifts. This is in addition to the taxes we are all forced to turn over.
