    Community service - I volunteeer at my synagogue and my local public library. I also do mailings at my daughter's high school from time to time. I used to be quite active at school when my kids were younger.

    Others - my husband and I often reach out to friends and neighbors; we prepare meals for new parents or those who are sick, bereaved or in crisis.

    On the street - not often. I used to donate gifts to homeless children at Christmastime when I worked near a bank that collected and distributed them.

    Organized charities - I've given to Doctors Without Borders. Once I gave to the Red Cross after Hurricane Andrew and I heard from them every quarter for years.

    So I see you've skited your way on over here. Amusing.

    I am not typically involved with helping others but it's not out of the realm of possibilities. I do believe there are a lot of people out there perfectly capable of helping themselves, but instead seem to permanently have their hands out.

    Would I? I guess.. if I wanted to. Depends what it was.
    I don't do those kinds of things either, but I help my friends when they need support.

    FYI, doing "community service" does *not* make someone a necessarily helpful or kind person, not in the least.

    I love helping "others". In fact, I sometimes do without always even realizing it myself. I'm only a little bit scared of penetrating others' personal space (I'm sometimes very jealous of my own), so I don't always offer to help others though I would like to.

    I'm very eager to help if someone asks for it or if someone clearly is... um... in distress

    Is euthanasia considered helping? Just curious.
