Utah ranked the most charitable state in the nation

    We all love to spend money and Utahns are one of the highest spenders, but we love giving away even more! A survey that was just conducted by the WalletHub showed Utahns give their hard earned money more to charity than that of any other state. You may think that may not be a huge surprise due to the high population for faithful LDS donating 10% of their income every year. But Utahns donate a huge amount of time and effort to charitable causes. Here is how Utah stacked up against the rest of the states.
