I don't know how you can compare helping people in difficulty
at home with people dying
Giving to charities is a difficult issue. There are 161,701 registered charities in the UK http://www.charitycommission.gov.uk/
Which one are we to give to? Which one will do without our money?
I wish I could donate to all charities, and donate enough to help them make a difference. But it's not possible. So I choose two charities - one which is close to my heart :: ONE ::
and one which has been close to me for years :: TWO ::
I feel guilty for turning down every other request for help, especially when it's a charity which helps children live.
I don't know where I'm going with this post. I support the motion of making CIN our charity for 2012. Not because it supports children in the UK particularly, but because it supports children.
