Satanus, I may be misunderstanding you but you seem to be saying it's alright for me as I live in a really nice neighbourhood, have loads of money and don't have any problems. Is that what you're saying?
I don't have loads of money and I live in a really tiny house. I grew up in near poverty because my father was a manual worker who grew up in the second world war and had little education.
The reason I give to charity is because I know what it is like to be very, very poor, wear second-hand clothes and always to want more food after a meal.
I just think it is a really positive thing that so many people who we usually have never heard of have started charities because they are good people and they care. Like Eglantyne Jebb who started Save the Children in 1919 to help German and Austrian children who were starving after WW1. She was helping the children of people, some of whom had bombed her own country. But they were just innocent children, just like we were. They were captives of a concept, you know?
There are good people in this world and I cling on to that thought because having been mixed up in a fundamentalist religion I came across some of the worst kinds of people. I don't know about you but I need to believe there are good people doing good stuff after some of the sociopaths I have met.
