Give Away Free Money

Have you seen The Changepot? It's a fun blog about a family who is constantly on the lookout for money that other people have dropped.

In the first three years of their blog, the Humphreys collected $1032.46. They have collected almost $50 since the beginning of the year.

How about this for a philanthropy project? Start your own "free money" changepot. Get a big jar and put a sign on it that tells the name of your particular cause. Then just watch for the change. Train yourself to have an eagle eye. Looking at The Changepot's blog it's easy to see how it all adds up.

At the end of the year, donate all the money to the cause you've been saving up for. All it cost you was a little time and attention.
