I try to donate what I can. Usually for kids. And the Food bank.
It's a sobering thought, particulary during a lockout where Billionaires are fighting with millionaires, to think that within the distance you could walk there are likely people going to bed hungry.
I hate sobering thoughts.
But really, do you need that $150 pair of shoes or would that $130 pair be good and you donate $20 worth of food?
We are lucky to live in such a rich and prosperous country and we owe that to our men and women in service.
I'll never understand that. Even if I won the $50 M you'd still never see me buying designer anything. Heck I still wear lots of clothes and even shoes that date back to late 80's and early 90's. I suppose I should sell them as vintage?
I think the same as you. Why waste on frivolity when there's so many (human and animal) in need?
