Give Till It Hurts

fr_avatar2

As someone from one of the wealthiest countries in the world i am quite fortunate in many respects… i always know where my next meal is coming from and have  a roof over my head that is solely owned i have more clothes than i can comfortably wear (For the last 5 months i could have got by quite nicely with a pair of Boxers, two pairs of shorts and a couple of T-shirts and some flip flops or a pair of sneakers.  (oh and a hat for the sun!) it’s been one of those summers – never ending! but i digress…) That is not the case for a significant portion of the world’s people.

Being time rich and money ‘poor’ ( relatively) i don’t do a lot of charity work or feel all that comfortable giving money to charities – which is not to say i don’t do it, i do plenty considering, but i feel a little guilty having so much when some have less than  nothing.

So, i have recently been reminded that it is easier to do something for others than we may believe.. Take a look, if you would be so kind, at my latest PAGE ( see menu bar beneath ‘Soapbox’ banner) not post.

( or now you can simply click on the freerice banner in my sidebar.)

…and for those who may, like me, be somewhat ‘skeptical’ where such matters are concerned, take a little look here:
