Apparently, the Home Office are announcing a new initiative tomorrow, A Generous Society (can't find much about it online), which I think was part of the 2003 Charities Bill, and will give each school £500 as a start to encourage a culture of giving among children.

I grew up in a giving society, place. As a child, I collected for (largely Jewish) charities, and saw my parents regularly give. So it's second nature to me. Last year, I went to a talk where people spoke about tithing - which is a faith-neutral concept - and I think I think we are better people if our lives are not just about ourselves.

I think I have more to say about this. I also have quite a lot of work to do.
