I give almost every time I pass one -- and this year was tight for me!

I give every time I go in a store, and I like to visit with the people at the pots, they have to stand there, here for 8-9 hours and its freezing here at times, this year was pretty mild till now but to stand there all day for 8-9 hours thats hard, so I like to visit with them and one guy said I made his day really better, so I give every time I go in a store.

I gave to every pot I saw even though we were very tight moneywise.

I cannot afford to give anything because of being extremely low income. Sorry. God Bless You and Have a Wonderful Week.

I give at least $1.00 every one I see. This time of year I always carry singles to drop in the pots at all the different locations.

I give every time I see one (unless I don't have money with me.)

If I have some change with me, I never pass one up. I think it is a GREAT organization. It has the highest ratio of money actually used to help of any charity I know.

My money rarely go to support religious organisations. And never to ones with discriminatory practises - like the salvation army.

If I have any change, or small bills, I put something in.

Currently maintaining within 5 lbs. (+ or -) of goal. I weigh daily, but also use a tape measure and the fit of my clothes to guage how well I'm doing.
