Charitable notions  
http://www.yarnharlot.ca/blog/archives/2005/01/03/needs_and_wants.html

I knew I liked Doctors without Borders before, but this clinches it as a place where I would like to donate the majority of my charity monies. I know I should donate more to charities. In this days where not everyone goes to a church, which often performs its own communities services with the help of the money given by its members, it isn't a bad idea to think of charities as a way to tithing to society.

It's nice to have a name and a face.

I really like Doctors without Borders in most regards. However...

I gave a donation to them on behalf of Sarah M. in Xmas of 2003. It took me until this Xmas to get off their f***ing mailing list. Mere letters requesting to be taken off didn't do it; I had to actually start rejecting their mail by scrawling "RETURN TO SENDER" across the things.

This...annoyed me. I'm still figuring out whether I'm ever going to donate to them again.
