Should I have given the nice young man a donation?

Question by Terri J: Should I have given the nice young man a donation?
So, a nice young man shows up at my door at the dinner hour, standing in the cold wind. He’s asking me to buy a coupon card to support Special Olympics. He tells me that “several local businesses” are sponsoring this by offering discounts. When I looked at the card, they were all national chains. He was wearing a typewritten “Special Olympics” card on his lapel.

But, I’m thinking, “I don’t know who this kid is. And, more importantly, I don’t know who is really handling this fundraising attempt. My guess is that a fundraising firm has hired him to do this for a cut. so, after his cut, and the fundraising firm’s cut, I figure about 25% of my donation will go to Special Olympics. So I tell him no. Now I’m feeling guilty.

So, I guess my only recourse is to mail a donation directly to Special Olympics, which will insure they get it all. Will you join me? What charity will you send your check to?

Best answer:

Answer by jul
you can still donate to the special olymics if you want, just go to there website

and i think you did fine, it could have been a spam, you never know

and i already give to them, so i don’t need to send another check

How to figure out the coupon dates for a Treasury note or Treasury bond?

Question by leblongeezer: How to figure out the coupon dates for a Treasury note or Treasury bond?
Given the maturity date, is there a specific rule to determine the exact date the semiannual coupons are payed. For example: if I´m told a T-bond matures October 12, 2009, can I assume the coupons are payed out every April 12 and October 12 or the next workday?

Answer by Joel A
Poked around the Treasury website and couldn’t find an answer to when interest is paid. Your statement seems logical, but one never knows if the government is governed by logic. I did find the form for asking the Treasury a question at the URL below.

Q&A: How can I find cheap flights to Michoacan Mexico from San Jose, CA. Very excited!!?

Question by : How can I find cheap flights to Michoacan Mexico from San Jose, CA. Very excited!!?
In December I want to spend my vacations in Mexico. I checked my local travel agency and they range for about a little less $ 1000!!! I am a college student as if that weren’t enough expenses to cover. (college deals, perhaps?) Anyhow, recommend me anything you have tried that has worked for you with details. Thank you!
I will greatly appreciate your help!! : )

Answer by Charlie
“How” you find the best price on flights is simple…you spend time on the computer looking on one site after another, day after day until you find the best one you can. People seem to think there is some kind of magic to finding a good price on a ticket…there is not. It is simply “hard work”…not asking someone else to do it for you. Also…you have waited too late to find a “bargain” for Christmas time. Then…Michoacan is not a tourist destination…so therefore you are not going to find “bargain” fares going there. I presume you would fly into Morelia.) The best available fares will be to Guadalajara or Mexico City…then you would need to take a bus…about 4 hours. Also, you will do better if you look for flights from San Francisco, rather than San Jose.

Q&A: What’s the difference between coupon rate and yield to maturity?

Question by Fasf F: What’s the difference between coupon rate and yield to maturity?
I think those two percents are for bonds, or a bill, i’m not sure

Best answer:

Answer by Robert M
i believe you understand coupon rate, yield to maturity would include gain in principal. If you bought a bond below par say $ 850. the $ 150 is gain which is included in the yield to maturity calculation along with the coupon yield.

Buying bonds to be held to maturity makes YTM the important parameter, just below credit quality that is.
