Build a beard and make the world a slightly better place! [livejournal.com profile] pippopippo has done it. I've done it. Will you?


It appears as if I'm having an attack of conscience, and I sure hope this lasts. As long as I can remember, I've been wanting to sponsor a child. Once I get a job — a proper paying job, I plan to follow through with this deed. Until then, I'll try to do my best through other methods such as loan on Kiva or give better gifts — this I won't expose until Christmas.

Also, Aussie flisters? Please create a butterfly! It takes less than a minute and I found it actually quite fun :) For every butterfly created, a dollar is donated.

I'm quite a materialistic person, but it's Christmas, and I know that this mind frame is not the best because Christmas only comes once a year, but I'm going to try my best whilst this lasts.

One of my New Year's Resolutions will be to donate any tips I receive at work.

Yay butterfly. ♥

I agree re: sponsoring a child. It's been a longtime wish of mine as well. It is a bit disturbing, as a mate of mine came from Africa and she said that when the charity people came, they made them pose with toys and food and then took them away again. :\

Did you butterfly? :)

Yes, I've heard about the bad points of sponsoring a child, as well as the scams, but I think it's okay as long as you do your research so that you choose the agency you donate it through wisely. As I'm not religious myself, I will not choose any agency affiliated with a Religion because even if they aren't exclusive to helping people who take up that specific Religion, or force it on to them, I just don't feel comfortable. I put a couple of hours into researching tonight, and for now I'd say I'd go with Plan, as they're not affiliated and I've heard good things about them. However, before I'd sign up, I'd definitely look deeper into the agency.

Do you happen to know which charity that was? :/ I'd like to make a note to avoid them.

Indeed I did. :P

I'm not sure which charity it was, but I should be talking to her soon, so I'll ask.
