I'm afraid I have to agree with Sparky and Don. None of the titles are very good.
I especially hate the ones that scream: "Over here! Charity! Give, give!"

Pens Against Poverty? The giving Scribe? Compassionate, compassion, etc... Horrible! Titles like these sound rather condescending to me. "Look what we're doing to help those poor, poor people over there."

Having said that... I'm afraid I'm unable to suggest a good title. I suck at titles.  :-[

It seems wrong to go back now after all the suggestions and voting, but if no one likes the choices, maybe go in a new direction. I took a look at thesaurus.com for 'anthology' and there are a lot of possible alternates:

accumulating, acquiring, acquisition, agglomeration, amassing, amassment, anthology , assemblage, assembling, assembly, assortment, batch, bringing together, caboodle, clump, cluster, collation, combination, company, compilation, congeries, congregation, convocation, crowd, cumulation, digest, gathering, heap, hoard, kit, levy, lot, mass, medley, mess, miscellany, mobilization, muster, number, obtaining, omnibus, pile, quantity, securing, selection, set, stack, stock, stockpile, store.

Personally, I like a 'heap' of anything, but that's just me.

Given the time of year, what about something non specific, such as Equinox
My novel, Trinity, available from Amazon.

No, ma. Heap is a deep south expression for a bunch of stuff, like you might say somebody has a heap of money. I will defer on the title to others with more imagination.

I'll start a new poll when I get up tomorrow. There may still be new suggestions for a title until then.
