    Yes I agree, every little bit counts. We can ALL afford to do more, whether it be financially or through deeds. This thread is inspiring me

    I donate regularly. We always get onto the local food drive/blanket drive ect, to support our local disadvantaged.

    I've chosen a career in Comm Services that I devote a lot of my heart and soul into.

    We try to minimize our consumption.

    We try to walk instead of drive.

    I'm sure that I could do a heck of a lot more

    Oh I also donate blood regularly when I'm able to.

    But I don't think that's as much a philanthropist thing as the fact that they give me free cookies .

    (Lies, I'd do it even without the cookies. As long as they gave me coffee I'm good to go. Must... Have... Coffee...).

    This thread is very inspiring . Alot of you do some wonderful things .

    In the last two years I'm ashamed to say I don't feel like I've done much at all except give financially to Yooralla , RSPCA , and the local animal welfare group in my suburb on monthly basis.

    Besides from giving financially Ive really been in my own little Sahm bubble and no longer do hands on giving , helping or volunteering .

    However one thing I'll never stop doing until I have breath in me is trying to get through to people that all creatures great and small are living things deserving of care and love and compassion and HUMANE treatment !!!! Ill probably still be lecturing people on this while I'm 6 feet under.

    I regularly give blood as my type is the same as my DSs, I give change to the Salvation Army, Blankets and clothes to vinnies, I support participants of the CEO sleepout through donations, I regularly buy homeless people meals, I support common ground (a new homeless housing initiative).

    I don't donate to overseas charities as I think getting our own problems sorted first is a great step. Sending money overseas while families sleep in condemned buildings, their cars, or accommodation not suitable for a mother with 3 kids is, to me, a problem.

    Homelessness is a nasty situation, refuges mean that you go in with more than you leave with - the other denizens of those places will rob you while you sleep.

    I know that there are issues overseas, children in poverty, war, famine and drought, but I know first hand what it is like to be homeless and you could say that my donations to local charities are a way for me to pay back their kindnesses when I was off the grid.
