This is the season for giving. And people in Mississippi are among the most giving in the nation when it comes to charity. Unfortunately, there are those who would take advantage of our giving nature and solicit money for their own personal gain. But we should not let that deter our generosity.
There is plenty of need in our state. Give what you can for legitimate needs. You can find a list of registered charities showing how much of the donations they receive goes to expenses on the Mississippi Secretary of State's website. We encourage you to be careful about where your donation goes as you continue to be the most generous people in America.
That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
