    Yep. Not that it's anyone's business.

    I don't donate to any cause that has a benefit to human beings. Not even veterans.

    Yes, I hear ya.

    Note, I'm not asking how much ... I'm just hoping people are donating to those who gave everything. It's so important.

    thank you.

    Well, I place Veterans at the top of my donate list. However, I also donate to no-kill pet shelters, if that's what you're referring to. Another good cause.

    I give homeless Vets cigarettes and beer. Not that it is anybody's buisness.

    If so, and you happen to have any excess .45 ACP ammo lying around, I would be tickled to see it got a good home.

    Needless to say alleged Veteran related organizations should be investigated before you donate. Just a tip, it's better to donate anonymously because they will pester you forever and sell your name to other people who will pester you forever. It's not a good idea to donate more than a buck to those "veterans" who have a sign around their necks at shopping centers. Years ago when I worked in a penal institution I recognized an inmate who was just released and sure enough he had a sign that claimed to be a veteran.
