'Tis the season of giving

The Wall St. Journal has series of articles on giving. Americans are generous; and rich Americans are very generous:
U.S. donors gave $295 billion directly to charitable causes last year, up 4.2% from 2005. About 65% of households with incomes of less than $100,000 gave to charity last year, with the average American giving 2% of income and the wealthiest as much as 8% to 10%, the report found.
Donor-advised funds make it easier to give, and the Journal has some tips for giving.
