RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - Looking for a worthy cause to donate to this holiday season? Would you consider the American government?

This year alone Americans have pitched in nearly eight million dollars to help reduce the nation's $16 trillion dollar debt, this on top of the taxes they already pay the government.

The amount this year is more than twice the amount Americans donated last year, however it's still just a fraction of the overall debt.

You can donate here.
