Something positive: Charitable giving at an all time high

ABC News: Americans Set Record for Charity in 2006

Americans gave nearly $300 billion to charitable causes last year, setting a new record...

"What people find especially interesting about this, and it's true year after year, that such a high percentage comes from individual donors," Giving USA Chairman Richard Jolly said.

Individuals gave a combined 75.6 percent of the total. With bequests, that rises to 83.4 percent.
Numbers is hard.

Retired in 2005 at age 58, no pension
