CAFE WEALTH survey — CHARITY

This is a continuation of the CAFE Wealth survey.  ( Other posts in this series can be found either by clicking on “CAFE Project” in the Tag Cloud or by clicking on  “GrumbleSmiles Trust” in the Topics list).

Charity giving

This is a great mark of the generosity of older people with 70% of the group frequently giving to charity.  There is research evidence to suggest that people are happier when giving rather than receiving and this doesn’t just apply to charities.

For an interesting video on this subject go to YouTube and enter Michael Norton – “How to buy Happiness” (10 minutes, 59 seconds).

 

Charity Shopping

It’s surprising how many people from this group do shop in charity shops.  Is this because they are looking for something to do, looking for good value or are they committed to recycling?
