Living in our over-taxed society (now with a top marginal Federal income tax rate of 39.6%), it is important to remember that December 31st is the last day to make charitable contributions for Tax Year 2014. Please give generously to the worthy charities of your choice. We may be biased, but we have some suggested charities linked at our Charity static page. Thanks, and May God Bless You, in the New Year. – The SurvivalBlog Staff.
