Suggestions on using special tax rebates

Dear Editor,

I would like to suggest three ways for people to use all or part of their economic stimulus tax rebate.

1) Make a financial gift to charity and help a neighbor in need who is suffering from layoff, injury, illness or the effects of poverty.

2) Spend some of the rebate at a nonprofit thrift store — stretch your funds and help a worthy mission.

3) Finally, if you really have to buy a new furniture set or plasma TV, contact a charity and offer your good-conditioned used one.

Your economic stimulus tax rebate can help a family or individual in need. Isn’t this the kind of action we need to stimulate?
