NSA Giving - April 2013

After giving it some thought and reorganizing my finances, i have decided that i would like to increase the amount of money i donate each month.  I have been donating $75, or approximately 3.5% of my net income.  Going forward, this amount will be $108 per month.  This equates to around 5% of net.  When that becomes routine or comfortable, i'll increase it to 7.5% of net with the ultimate goal of giving away 10% of my gross income.  

Here's where the money went this month:

$27 - Asheville on Bikes - in the spirit of the 21 Day Challenge

$27 - Riverlink - expanding on the "outdoors" theme

$27 - NORML - "an unjust law is no law at all."

$27 - Asheville Greenworks - in the spirit of Earth Day

I'd like to reiterate that i'm not sharing this information in a "holier-than-thou" kind of way.  I'm just being open and honest. I encourage you to give any amount that your are comfortable with.  However, make it a regular thing.  Each and every paycheck take a predetermined amount of money out and give it away.  Make it a habit.  Our world will be a better place because of it.  I thank you in advance.
