Throughout the last couple years several events have happened in my life that have sparked interest in things that I have never had interest in before. One of those interests include the different charities and causes that are out there, both here in the USA and internationally.
Last year I participated in an event called the Project 4 Awesome. Basically it is a two day event that promotes different charities through YouTube videos. Anyone can make a video that promotes their favorite charity, and then people rate and comment on those videos to get them to appear on the front page of YouTube. Last year I made a video for the World Wildlife Fund. Even though I like what they do, I really didn’t donate anything monetarily to their cause.
Well, in 2010, I want to start donating monthly to a charity that really means something to me. I either want to donate to the American Lung Association or to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. I just don’t know which one yet. I will let you all know when and which one I chose to donate to.
The American Lung Association is near and dear to me because of first hand experience with lung problems. I have had asthma since I was born. My mother has asthma as well, and my dad has emphysema.
St Jude Children’s Research Hospital is near and dear to me because I really have compassion for what they are doing to help fund cancer research. They accept patients regardless of the family ability to pay.
Do any of you donate to a charity? If so, which one and why?
Until next time readers, God Bless!
