You&rsquore probably tired of hearing about how the economy&rsquos in trouble.

No wonder, because the message is tiring. People are losing their jobs, college has become even more unaffordable, we&rsquore all doomed.

Sure, hunting for a job or an internship may be more difficult, and paying for college may have become even more of a struggle. Even so, it&rsquos likely that you&rsquove got enough money to feed, clothe and shelter yourself reasonably well, with money left over for trips to the bars and movies.

For example, chapters of the American Red Cross are having to adapt to unfortunate economic conditions. Some are laying off workers in Washington D.C., almost one-third of the 3,000 employees working in the organization&rsquos headquarters were laid off. Other branches of the Red Cross are reducing hours of operation, canceling volunteer training or shutting down entirely. In the event of a disaster, these effects could be devastating. Charitable donations are more important than ever don&rsquot stop making contributions because of the economic hard times.
