I donate time, money and expertise to Horizon farm trust, a home for intellectually impaired adults. I was the chairman of the Management committee for 10 years and am still an ordinary member of the Management committee and the Chairman of the Board of trustees. I provide free architectural services and assist to raise funds.
My mom made a packed lunch for a beggar who'd asked for money. We watched him from the house just get up off the pavement and leave it there without even opening it.He chucked it in the next bin. They want money not food.
Meals on Wheels, local SPCA, those people who rescue dogs from China and Taiwan, petrol attendants, some parking attendants, the guy who does piece jobs in my garden, Muscular Dystrophy Assoc (their annual year planner) some military veterans aid fund, etc. It is difficult to support charities when you're young and not in a well paying job. As I am retired now, I do have some spare money for charitable causes.
Nope. I help because I want to, and I keep it local because I can see the difference it makes. Since I am non religious, I also make sure I only support non religious charities since I in no way want to support their evangelism.most 'charities' have nothing to do with charity and are just another way by which man tries to placate his consciousness - trying to score brownie points with God...
