Yes, we donate to Drs. Without Borders (really admire and respect these people, as opposed to a drs. visit, where they just tap on the computer and offer a prescription, and won't even go to a rural area to work), donate to an animal shelter, and have educated a young girl in East Timor, give to the voluntary firefighters.
Yes Definitely!! I was helped when Aaron was a baby with Asthma,by their wonderful association,so I donate to them,as well as various Cancer groups, Heart Foundation,The Wilderness Foundation,Salvation Army,Medcine sans Frontiers, RSPCA, and MANY others. I may not have much to give these days now that I cannot work,but I still share in these cases.
I give cash donations via electronic transfer (as that seems to be the way of things these days) to DV Connects Pets in Crisis which is for pets of families suffering from domestic violence and need to be fostered to ensure their safety.
I also support the Redcliffe Area Youth Space's 'Together We Can' fund which is money that goes to kids who are the victims of domestic violence for them to have a chance at a normal life and doing fun things. Unfortunately, I am not always in a fiscal position to support them every fortnight, but I would love to.
I have to say that I absolutely despise being approached in the streets by those people who want to sign my up to direct debit for a year or two. I get a bit annoyed by this as it is so pushy and they won't accept a couple of cents. They want your credit card or bank account details. I find that manipulative and affronting.
