This past July I made a few posts asking others to donate towards the Australian Cause “Dry July”. My target amount just $500.00…I thought that this was going to be such an easy target to meet.
I was very wrong…
I had just assumed that the dollars I had given to other people would be reciprocated. Who doesn’t want to cure help towards getting rid of Cancer and helping make life easier for those who suffer from it.
I was very wrong…
Yet, the cheek of it is…They keep asking me to donate to their things still?
Why do people do that? It’s like those people who never turn up to anybody elses’s things, but then complain when others wont help them out? Except, of course, in cases of sicknesses. I had a friend who used to do that and she didn’t suffer from anxiety or anything, just never could be bothered. Then complained when people wouldn’t show up to her things? Like, of course they’re not. (She’s not even a nice person to begin with).
Oh my Goodness there are so many things I actually don’t mind Australia taking one “thing” from American and that would be Black Friday and Cyber Monday…I cannot tell a lie…It is fantastic with all the deals that come out at this time of year. I usually know what presents I want to get for people and I do not go out to the shops at this time. Although a delivery cost is annoying, I really do feel like it’s worth it.
What I also wanted to write about though is what else we can do as a community to help others who are not fortunate during this times. There are so many different services out there that do help those and I wanted to write about what you can do also. I’m hopefully going to expand this to different countries, depending on what I can find.
Of course we all know that we can volunteer your time to help at volunteers and shelters. There are a large variety of these. You can also help families by setting donations, after all help doesn’t just have to stop at Christmas:
