Obama's Donations to Charity

President Obama and his wife recently released their 2008 federal tax return, according to the New York Times. Out of their combined income, they gave nearly 6.5% to charities, totaling $172,050. Among the 37 different charities, the antipoverty group CARE received $25,000. It's encouraging to know that our President supports various charities, especially one that has done so much work to fight poverty.
