What's better? I donated 5K to charity and then announced it on facebook/friends vs. I told no one. And why?

Why does it take posting it on fcbk to feel good? Those intentions and motivations are between you and your God. Broadcasting / bragging about it isn't hating, it becomes tasteless and pretentious, seeking man's approval. What's happening to ppl? This is akin to people posting how pious they are on fcbk too - as if that gets you salvation. It's the heart that matters; the impact on vulnerable lives not the wonting approval of people just because you did it. Has nothing to do with 'hating'. Stay humble people.

Shout it out loud! I think that's great and they will too. It's not bragging if it's true plus that is something great to brag about. If you want to tone it down say something like even though it hurt the pocketbook I think it was worth it. Just donated $5000 to my favorite charity _______

Yea that's a great one A1. Hey, if the point is raising funds for a great org then it is all good. I think y'all are taking it in a different way. Even if it is a humble brag of that is what makes the OP feel good about donating then brag away and donate again next time. A feeling that we should all be generous with our money is a good thing. Stop hating on people who are doing good and want to feel good about that.

I'm more of a left hand right hand kinda person. But each to his own.
