Christmas lights are going up all around the sound. Do you still have those old-fashioned incandescent lights?
Maybe this is the year to upgrade to energy-efficient LED lights. They use 90 percent less electricity than traditional bulbs.
A new report from the Secretary of State confirms millions of dollars are going to paid fundraisers and marketing campaigns. In some cases, less than 50% of the money raised ends up going to the actual charity. It's another reminder to exercise extreme caution if you're thinking about making a charitable donation this holiday season.
