My friends and I have joined hands to form 2 teams and are raising funds for OXFAM Australia (https://trailwalker.oxfam.org.au/team/home/16422 and https://trailwalker.oxfam.org.au/team/home/16552).
Oxfam Aus conduct a 100km challenge each year across 4 cities in Australia and require each participating team to raise funds to cater for the their charity causes.
Both our teams are still a long way from collecting the minimum required funds to take part in the 100kms walking challenge though!
Sometimes. Mostly I prefer to just make small regular contributions to the couple of charities we (my family) have chosen. Every now and then I will give to a one off fundraiser, like sometimes if there is a huge natural disaster, or if a friend is looking for contributions to a cause that's important to them.
Yes, every day, through the taxes I pay which the government then distributes all over the world as emergency relief, foreign aid, humanitarian efforts, refugee support and all manner of assistance. So I prefer to help friends and family who are on government benefits (disability, unemployment) as they struggle not only financially, but also emotionally and medically.
Not anny more because most of Them are living on very expencive addresses ,paying expencive time on tv sending expencive folders out offen manny collart on very expencive paper on top of those facts the organisations leaders are getting a ver High wages.Its different with the Doctors without frontiers sorry I dont what you are calling Them in Australia.In the oranization I am talking about ther Medical staff are hardly getting anny monny for ther job .
I've supported many charities over the years including World Vision, Surf Lifesavers, Mater Hospital, Deaf Society, Community Aid Abroad, Endeavour.
At the moment I'm contributing to Kiva.org. This one is great cos you lend money - $25 or more and the people pay it back and then you lend it again so I am helping multiple people with my original donation). I also collect and make items for Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes and send money to Drought Angels - 2 truly amazing women who are helping our farmers. Look them up on Facebook.
