I visited because I have an intense interest in different religions, particularly from a historical perspective, but it made me angry and sad

I dont think the every day person should donate. I think there are so many people in this wold making millions with sports or acting etc, they should be the ones FROCED to make a difference. We have enough money worries to feel gilted into helping when we cant. So much money being wasted on entertainment where it could be spent saving lives.

People may feel that the little that they do/donate is meaningless but if people stopped these small things the world,and those who benefit from your charity, would feel it. Every little bit does help even if you cannot see it.
We make financial donations throughout the year to local, national and international charities, including sponsoring a child. I am going to donate to an education program in Australia also now that my son is going to school next year.
I work for a community legal centre, for a wage that as lawyer with my experience is very low, because I want to try and ensure that everyone has access to justice and my aim is to empower people so that they can advocate on their own behalf and then encourage others to do the same.
I participate in various campaigns but not as much as I could.
We could do more, we are not very environmentally aware (well we are aware but do not actually do anything more than recycle here and there), we are big consumers and do not often look at where a product is made. I am going to try and take more notice of where items are made etc

Agree, little bits add up. I hate that the world's problems could be solved with the money in the entertainment industry, defence, sport, the vatican but being angry and taking no action achieves nothing.

It's so complex, though. All that money won't end world hunger. It needs to be spent properly, and lots of the time it's not. Humans are, well, human. We make mistakes, we can be weak. I don't think taking money away from big rich fat cats is the answer.
