New Years Resolution for 2010: Make a Habit of Giving

I have a lot to be thankful for: I still have a job despite the poor economy, a loving family, living conditions that would seem luxurious to many in the world, and the ability to give something back to others less fortunate than myself.

Although I've contributed to a number of charitable causes over the years, it's been in a somewhat haphazard fashion. Getting organized is a popular New Year's resolution, and Dale McGowan's Foundation Beyond Belief provides a great way to do just that when it comes to charitable giving.

My wife and I will be setting up our monthly donation amount, and choosing how it will be distributed among the various organizations chosen by the foundation every quarter. We're looking forward to helping others in the new year and beyond, and we hope many others will join us.
