Journal and Courier Online - Editorial: "Nursing along a tapped out giving spirit

It's the time of year for giving. So many worthy causes, so stretched already.

In addition to the annual mad dash to the malls and shopping centers, the holiday season involves the equally important tradition of giving to charities and other benevolent organizations.

Total annual charitable giving in the United States is around $250 billion, a figure that remains relatively constant from year to year, according to Charity Navigator, an independent charity evaluator. About half of this giving is done in the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas."
