I don’t know — that’s kind of a big generalization. We are somewhat weathy and have helped out a lot of friends and acquaintences in need just because we were able to do so. It’s funny that I was actually just thinking about that right before I read this post- about a friend that we’d given 10k to so she could get a good lawyer when she was falsely accused of a crime. It made all the difference and her name was cleared. That was a lot of money but we were really happy to do it.

I recently went to a fund-raiser for an new organization that does suicide prevention for teens and they raised close to 1M in one evening. The phrase from the Bible is that “the love of money is the root of all evil.” In other words, it’s not money that is the problem, it’s loving it above other things that is the issue. As with most things, there are all kinds in every category.
