I made a thread awhile back saying that I would do some sort of charity for the community.

WHELP. SHIT HAPPENED. CAN'T DO IT. NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE WERE INTERESTED.

So instead, let's share on whom we are donating to this holiday season!

First off, I already donated $50 to the SA forums Charity Drive:
SA Holiday Charity Let's Adopt a Tiny, Awesome Village in Haiti! $XXXK+ raised!!. Donated $50 to this cause and got a book named after me (In the thanks area).

I also purchased the song by Jack Black and Jason Segel and even added a little tip on the iTunes checkout. The song Little Drummer Boy mixed with Peace on Earth.



If anything. At least purchase this song. Every cent counts!

Finally. Me and a few friends spent a whole day yesterday working a full double. Pledging our entire earnings for that day to go towords Child's Play. Five participated and we all reached $1,109

This year I donated a grand total of $168.25. 50% went to Childs Play. And the rest went to Shriners Hospitals.

How about you?

E- I also just want to add that sure, you don't believe in santa; I do. I am santa. You are Santa. Everyone can be Santa.

When I was in the Masons I learned that making a child happy is by far the most important thing in life. Well, one of them. But for this holiday season. It's depressing these days and there are A LOT OF KIDS IN HOSPITALS THAT WON'T GET GIFTS THIS YEAR DUE TO PARENTS PAYING FOR THEIR KID'S BILLS

So instead of dumping money on that dumb fucking videogame why not give it away to some kid who would cherish it more than you ever would? Think of it this way. Donating money gives you karma points to your life. And in one way, shape, or form. You will be rewarded back someday when you need it most.

Sure, give to your family and friends. But at least give a penny. Or a Dollar. Or if you are really great (Which you all are) you should donate more.

Good charities are the following:

Childs Play Link

Shriners Hospitals Link

Doctors without Borders Link

Ill update the OP with more links as provided. But start there!

Donated $5 to St. Jude's Children's Hospital today. Typically my main donation of the year goes to the alumni association for CSULB to help other students pay their tuition and such.

The St. Jude's Infomercial got me years ago. 30 bucks a month goes to them. And they're awesome. If I really don't have it that month, they're VERY easy to get a hold of, I explain the situation, and they don't take it out of the account. Nor do they remove me from their program, which is nice, because I get pictures and I have the calendar thing on my fridge. I dunno. It's just a reminder for me that there really ARE people who would need/appreciate it a lot more than I would, because I'm human. Sometimes it is difficult to donate. But there's soda in my fridge, so I always see the pictures there. And they get to me. They really do.

But they're my favorite to donate to. Especially since they work with me because I'm sorta kinda, and by sorta kinda, I mean definitely, dirt poor. I always try to make up for it though. If I can't donate 30 one month, I either do 60 the next, or slightly more than 30 each month that follows.

Otherwise, I DON'T have much to donate. Actually, I don't even have that 30. I just make it happen. But donating time is just as good. I've been able to religiously hop over to CHOP(Children's Hospital) right after I get out of my internship. Before then, my schedule was so sporadic that I couldn't guarantee the time, but when I could, I did it. It's actually a lot of fun. The kids are badass.

I put my bit of change to the Salvation Army. They fund the homeless shelters here. If Eric has to work on Christmas Day I might be volunteering at the dinner at the homeless shelter.

Anywho... I don't have much to donate. T^T

Yeah. The only thing that pisses me off are the people who are pushy about it. I'm not talking the not taking the polite "No thank you"s seriously. I'm talking "Sir/Ma'am, you're in my way, if I'm late for work, I'm going to come out here and punch you right in the face and set you on fire." kinda pushing.
