Tithing - Charity Donation
& Wealth Creation
The concept of tithing or regular charity donation has its roots in many of the world's
religions - but how does it apply to you?
If you're working towards financial independence, it's a great idea to include some form of charity donation in
your overall financial plan.
Why? The paradox of tithing is that when you give money away, you are demonstrating that you have more than enough
and you open up a channel to attract more money into your life. You don't need to contribute large sums at first,
but it's good practice to work your way up to minimum of 10% of your income.
If you belong to a church and have a tithing program in place, great. Otherwise there are lots of reputable
organizations that accept charity donations for a number of different causes.
Here is a short list of organizations, many of which have offices in a number of countries. You can do a search for
your local branch via one of the search engines, or just do a general search for "charity donation".
