    Does tithing at church count? I'm a volunteer teaching sunday school there as well. And I donate plasma every 6 weeks. And we have a sponsored child. We homeschool. Our family is kind of a 'backstop' for a university student student who sometimes needs to move 'home' for a few weeks every so often during the year, even though her parents are in the North Island....
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    It's the policy of giving 10% of your income to your church. "Tithe" is the old English word for tenth.

    I listen to people And I genuinely care.

    I also don't reserve that "special smile" for one person - I give it to the bus driver, the fruit & veg dude, strangers on the street. It's amazing how much a real smile can touch people.

    In general I try not to be a douche and to treat everyone with respect.

    Small gestures, but I believe the little things make up life.

    Kudos to everyone else - this is a sweet thread
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    I like to give back, as the spirit moves me, by doing good things randomly rather than focused on one effort I can point to, and I'm trying to raise my sons to do the same. Some of the things I do include:

    - I spend time at the local library working toward adult literacy
    - I donate, recycle or freecycle used items rather than throwing them out
    - I give money to the arts
    - Like canio6, I used to donate blood until I got bounced for too much time in the UK (mad cow).
    - I been known to march on Washington, to protest gun violence

    I feed cats in the neighborhood, and abuse people that are mean to them.
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."
