We live in one of the most generous cities in the country, according to Men's Health magazine.

The magazine ranked cities based on how much they give during the holidays. In particular, they research who makes the largest online charitable donations during the holidays, then the number of donations given to Goodwill Industries International during December, the amount collected by the Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign and the number of toys donated to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.

According to the study, Austin ranked high because of the Captial Area Food Bank which provides 20 tons of food to 21 Central Texas counties.

Houston ranked 28th, San Antonio 31st, Lubbock 50th.
