...Hoosiers are good-hearted, generous and caring people. This recent snippet from the Indianapolis Star shows that not all Indiana citizens are like Micah Clark and Eric Miller - concerned only with what they can keep for themselves. As an example, check out GayIndy.org's series on how Eric Miller has made millions of dollars at the expense of the right-wing sheeple.

Indiana households, foundations and companies gave $4.86 billion in 2003, according to a new study, earning Hoosiers high marks for generosity.

More than 79 percent of households gave to charity, compared with 67 percent nationally.

The wealthy give more on average, but as a percentage of their income, the less well-off are the biggest givers. Households earning less than $50,000 per year donated about 5.6 percent of their income, compared with just 3.7 percent for those earning more than $100,000.
