Wallet Hub recently put together a list of all the states in the country, ranking them by how charitable their citizens are. That includes donations, volunteer service, anything that could be considered charity. I scanned the list, expecting to see Montana pretty high up there. And then I kept scanning... and scanning... until I found Montana all the way near the bottom, in 44th place.

Now sure, that's better than last place, I guess (that honor went to Nevada). But still! That is not a good ranking! We have to do better here and try to catch up - at the very least up to my home state of New York, which came in at number three. Do we have what it takes to take Minnesota's number one spot? Let's make it happen for 2019.
