Despite Economy, More Willing to Give

Ad Feedback

Even though America is experiencing a weak economy, it could mean good news for charities.

A new study by the Christian group World Vision found that even though Americans aren't planning to shop as much this holiday season, they plan to be more generous and look for meaningful gifts that help the poor.

Of those surveyed, 84 percent said they would rather receive a gift that would benefit someone else rather than themselves. About half said they would more than likely give a charitable gift.

Justin Greeves of Harris Interactive helped conduct the study.  He said the findings reflected and unselfish concern among Americans and the value system of giving back.
