My rant: Why is it that there are so many people using fundraising sites to get cash for their personal endeavours, like studying, making trinkets, etc? Whatever happened to good ol' fashioned SAVING??
OK, rant over ;) But I do want to share something with you here - with the above in mind, Anita decided to participate in the Care Australia Walk In Her Shoes challenge, whereby between 18-24 March you walk 10,000 steps a day, which is the equivalent of the average a woman has to walk in developing countries just to collect water (about 6km). Women in these countries are even more disadvantaged and impoverished than other members of these societies ...
I would LOVE if you could please head over to this page to donate to Care Australia (a non-religious organisation) - even the smallest donation will make a difference, and they accept PayPal - donations are tax deductible, of course ;)
So far she's only collected $40 (that's me!), and her work colleagues are in the process of collating everyone's donations ... but it would be great if we could get a bit more!
Usually donations are a personal thing for me, which is why I wouldn't normally post this link ... but lately I have been bombarded with 'donate so we can release this album', 'donate so I can bring out a new clothing line', 'donate so we can make this movie', and it's doing my head in - the latter request had raised $30,500!! How shallow is that, when there are so many more worthy causes in the world??
What do you think of the new 'fundraising' sites, or is it just me who has noticed them all?
