Being Charitable While Broke – Possible or Not?

is it possible to be charitable while broke

A very nice reader referred my to this cool site called Instead.

The idea is that you choose to forgo something small like a coffee, a movie, take-out food, or something else entirely that you get to pick yourself. Then, you pick a non-profit to donate that money that you would've spend on the coffee or movie.

I like how this site makes giving to others so attainable, and so doable.


Do you know of similar sites? Do you give to charities when you're broke (or when you're feeling broke)? Do you do other things to make up for not giving monetarily? If so, I'd love to hear about it.
