    I was just wonding how many people give to charity or have a foster child(like the ones you see on t.v?) and if so, do you give to more than one. It's not a mad thing if you don't i was just wondering!

    My mom collects change from all our family member to donate to the childrens hospital, and instead of gifts for her birthday or x- mas she asks we give to the hopsital in her name! I also give to people when the are out side the shopping malls!

    I donate time to charity (Volunteer about 3hrs a week with organic food group- get good food to students/etc who could not normally afford it). I bake a more than a few times a semester for bakesales, mostly for women's shelters, but also for battery recycling, and other environmental issues. I send out about 3 really good Christmas boxes to Africa a year. I wish I had more money to do more...

    Once a year, I go through my towels and harass some of my friends for their old towels and take them to the local humane society and no kill shelters. Also when I have some spare cash I go buy dog & cat treats because these places just cant afford the luxury of buying these things. Id like to volunteer my time at these shelters however my allergy to pets keeps me away.

    I have always thought about sponsoring a child from a 3rd world countries or war torn but realize that there are children here in our cities that need help too.

    I agree. I believe 3rd world children deserve clean water, good food, quality housing and health care, but I first like to look at the children (and adults) that need our help here. I hope this doesn't sound heartless, but I believe in taking care of your own first and foremost.

    Also, our family volunteers time at the local food bank. And when the children outgrown something (toys, clothes, shoes) we donate them as well. Also, my belongings as well as husbands, house hold items and food on a regular basis. We can't afford to donate much right now, but we do what we can.

    Sure those opinions on 3rd world children not being a priority, would change pretty fast if it were YOUR kids living there.
    Sad thing is, is that they are someones kids, there are parents out there who had to look into their childs eyes today, and watch them die in their arms because they didnt even have the necessities of life to give them.
    You should count yourself lucky that by the grace of GOD it is not you and your family scraping for rations.
    With things like Welfare, Foodbanks, Churchs, Soupkitchens, and all the other services provided for "our own", I think its time to start thinking outside our walls, where it REALLY makes a difference.
    We have all gotten so accustom to our RICH life (and I think every Canadian is wealthy, no matter if your on welfare or make $3500000 a year) that it seems we have lost touch with what really counts. The basics of life, which so many are deprived of
