If you make monetary donations to charity, please consider voting. If you are so inclined, share more specific information in a post (though please don't feel compelled to go into detail if you would prefer not to). I am simply curious as to the habits of the users here on DonationCoder. The nature of this website attracts individuals who are willing to share their monetary resources with others, so I am interested in how that extends beyond what we do here on DC.
The extent to which I might ever use the data from this poll would be a future blog post that would read something like, "Of the people who voted in a poll I ran on a popular website's message board, 50% indicated that they donated when a specific need such as an earthquake arose." Nothing more specific than that, and I promise not to specifically refer to any posted responses unless I have directly contacted the individual and received permission to do so. I doubt any need to be specific unless someone shares something really interesting about their poll response. That being said, I am not planning any particular blog post at this time.
I recognize that this is an informal poll and would carry no weight as part of a larger study or academic research.
And, while I fully support everything that DonationCoder.com does, I am not talking about those kinds of donations here .
