I would like to suggest three ways for people to use all or part of their Economic Stimulus Tax Rebate.
1. Make a financial gift to charity and help a neighbor in need who is suffering from layoff, injury, illness or the effects of poverty.
2. Spend some of rebate at a nonprofit thrift store — stretch your funds and help a worthy mission.
3. Finally, if you really have to buy a new furniture set or Plasma TV, contact a charity and offer your good-conditioned used one.
Your Economic Stimulus Tax Rebate can help a family or individual in need. Isn’t this the kind of action we need to stimulate?
