    As far as I am concerned a 50 to 1 return on my "investment" is one that I cannot ignore.  I understand that sharing my income is more than how much money it gets in return (how do you put a monetary value on making sure that vets have food, or animals are taken care of) but what other charity / investment ever transforms my $10 into $50?  If that was a stock return than I may, just may, believe in the stock market and purposely invest there.
