Please follow and like us:

According to Wallethub, Kentucky ranks second in the nation when it comes to collecting and distributing food to the needy. This is good, but we're in last place when it comes to the percentage of people who donate their time. And we're 48th in the nation with the percentage who financially contribute to charities. Kentuckians only donate 1.22 percent of their income to charitable groups. Overall, Kentucky ranked 42 when considering 18 measures of charitable behavior.  So it looks like there's room for improvement. Charity is an important part of the good society. When people who are blessed with resources reach out to help those without, it makes us a better people and improves our communities. This Christmas season, count your blessings and then look for opportunities to bless and help others.
