Charitable giving is an important part of our social, financial and spiritual life. And studies show that giving to charity makes you happy. But who gives more to charity: men or women? Secular people or religious people?
The folks at Donate a Car 2 Charity compiled research and produced the following infographic with the results. Check them out and see if you guessed right!
During the Right Here, Right Now 2nd Anniversary show, Patrick Madrid took a call from a listener who showed the value that one Immaculate Heart Radio bumper sticker can have on a life.
The caller, who requested to remain anonymous, was a former prostitute who, after attempting suicide, saw an Immaculate Heart Radio bumper sticker and decided to tune-in. After listening to the programs on Immaculate Heart Radio, she found hope, turned her life around, and entered the Catholic Church.
Hear her story in her own words.
Immaculate Heart Radio president, Doug Sherman, said of this testimony:
“God’s grace is pretty amazing. Stories like this make our tough days a little easier. As Mother Angelica used to say when hearing a story like this: ‘We could shut it all down right now, and it would have been worth it. That’s the value of one soul.'”
