Survey Says: Americans Not Giving As Charitably

Unknown-3World Vision conducted their 5th annual survey on annual giving, and survey says that Americans are less likely to give a charitable gift around thanksgiving and christmas than they were last year.  

World Vision is a Washington based Christian Relief and developed organization that polled 1,012 U.S.adults and 1,000 Canadians over the age of 18.  The survey also showed that about 59% of respondents will spend less money on holiday presents as a result of the current economic climate. 

See Warren S. Hersch, World Vision Survey: Americans are Less Charitable This Year, LifeHealthPro, Nov. 20, 2012.

This is not really surprising in light of world events and the uncertainties with our government and the world.
