|Writer's Block: Volunteering
||[Oct. 25th, 2008|08:36 am]
When it comes to making a difference
, some people donate money and others volunteer their time. What cause gets your time or money?
The National MS Society Western WA Chapter. Also JDRF (Diabetes Research), and the American Cancer Society. I will donate to the humane society and other reasonable (non-extremist) animal charities. Food banks and local poverty charities also are on my list.
I believe in science, so that is my top priority to find cures for disease. I also believe in a responsibility to ease the suffering of animals and people struggling to survive.
I am more than just a little sick of politics at this point in time, but I believe that our government has failed to provide a safety net for preventing homelessness, especially for women and children and those with temporary disability (mental or physical) who WILL return to the workforce just as soon as they are able.
