I donated. I don't normally get political here, but I'd much rather give money to something like this than have the government tax the Sh$t out of me and waste it. Power to the people!!

Even though you're gonna get taxed regardless?

@jdduenas What the heck does that even mean? He was stating that the money you give to causes such as this do more good and help more people than taxes ever can.Government promises are just to give politicians and their ilk power.I just lost a child a few weeks back to cancer and I have seen first hand how much causes like this bring happiness to children who do not have that long to live and are suffering far worse than the worst days most of us will ever see.

Fun fact jdduenas. Donations to charity are tax deductible.

I double checked to make sure... Yes Child's Play donations are most definitely tax deductible. Physical donations are tax deductible through the hospital. Cash donations are tax deductible from Child's Play. Frankly I totally recommend anyone calculate how much you are permitted to get deducted from your taxes and donate at LEAST that much to Child's Play or another charity. Would you rather give the government $5000? Or have that same $5000 go to children?Sources:Charity Donation Tax Deduction Eligibility Infohttp://taxes.about.com/od/deductionscredits/a/CharityDonation.htmChild Play's Specific Eligability as an Organizationhttp://www.childsplaycharity.org/about.phpQ. Since this is a charity donation I can deduct it from my taxes, right?A. Each hospital’s charity tax ID number is included in the information section on its wish list. Use your confirmation email as a receipt. If you are making a cash donation, Child’s Play’s own tax ID number is 20-3584556. If you have any questions about how this works, please ask your tax advisor.

far better option, especially since the american government would just as likely spend it on bombing iraqis or something rather than to help its on people...

I think what jdduenas was saying is that the money jtrain is donating has been taxed already.
