2008 Giving

I took a survey last month that asked questions about my personal giving trends since the downturn in the market.

I answered most all of the questions along the following line: I am giving more of myself and my time this year, but less of my money.

Sitting at the computer this afternoon, writing up all my year end giving letters and balancing the family "giving budget", I came to the realization the we actually gave more money this year than last.

Why had I been so convinced otherwise?
Is the perceived need so great that our attempts to lighten it seem inconsequential?

How do you perceive your giving in 2008?
And have you found it to be true?
