Charity Toasts

To the best of all nations-donation.

To a person so generous that it makes me want to say, "Yes, my friends, there is a Santa Claus."

As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men. -Galatians 6:10

May the heart that melts at the sight of sorrow always be blessed with the means to relieve it.

Here's riches to the generous and power to the merciful.

May we strengthen the weak,
Give light to the blind,
Clothe the naked,
And be friends to mankind.

Here's to those of us who work for charity-we have to, nobody will pay us.

To charity - unless a man is a recipient of charity, he should be a contributor to it.

In the words of Alexander Pope, "In faith and hope the world will disagree, But all mankind's concern is charity.

To ourĀ  benefactor, a person, in the words of Chauncey Depew, "who makes two smiles grow where one grew before."

The best way I can think of to ask for your support is to use the words that the famous suffragette Lucy Stone chose for her last words: "Make the world better."

In the words of Josh Billings, "Remember the poor - it costs nothing.

As Francis Bacon said, "In charity there is no excess."

To the spirit of charity. As Clint W. Murchison said, "Money is like manure. If you spread it around, it does a lot of good, but if you pile it up in one place, it stinks like hell."
