Do You Have $50?

Posted by Courtney Ferguson on Thu, Dec 31, 2009 at 8:28 AM

Phew! Now that the present-buying BS is out of the way, it's time to get down to the brass tacks of post-holiday merriment... spending money on yourself. Got some scratch from Grandma and Grandpa (five whole dollars!)? How about a couple sawbucks from returning those sheets Mom sent you? All in all, you might have 50 extra bucks sitting around. Why not donate it to a charitable and political cause before January 1? You can write off all 50 of those dollars on your 2009 taxes (on your state tax returns). There's all sorts of nonprofit Political Action Committees to donate to: Basic Rights Oregon, Stand for Children, Bus Project, to name a few.

Here's more info.

Quick like a bunny, get to donating before the clock strikes midnight.
