Charities and donations

Carol from Brown Owl

We try to help where we can, and most likely we could do more. However, once you give to a charity, that’s it! You are inundated with very sad stories and the endless need to give money to save more people, animals, children, patients…Whatever we could give it would NEVER be enough.
Goodness know how Bill and Melinda Gates cope.

The thing is we are quite comfortable, don’t have any ambition to travel, buy jewels or anything similar so we give where we can. But we are retired, and are harassed by so many worthy organisations wanting more from us – by text, email, post and telephone - and sometimes in the street.

These are the latest that want more:
• The Leprosy Mission
• Oxfam
• The Orangutan Project
• UNICEF
• World Vision
• Wellington Hospital
• The Foodbank Project
• Share the Meal
• Salvation Army
• Fred Hollows Foundation
• Doctors without borders
• Greenpeace
• Forrest and Bird
• World Wildlife Fund
• Trees that count

We have discussed and chosen the charities we will support this year, but feel guilty and depressed when we put the latest appeal in the rubbish.
Does anyone else feel this way?
