7 finally but not least. Find one notable charity cause and donate time or money. And/or add too for every builder I pick up. Giving matters!
I feel a good one is anything to do with the troops.
I am very antiwar, especially the intentionally created war profiteering bullsh*t that all of conflicts from the last 100 years have actually been about in truth.
But I am VERY pro troop. I don't blame an 18 year old kid for not having the life experience to understand that they are being told a complete lie as to why they are being asked to make sacrifices for their country.
So I have the utmost respect for any soldier who joins to serve because from their perspective they are willing to put their life on the line to protect all of our freedoms, and as individual human beings and members of our society troops deserve the ultimate respect for their intentions for making that commitment.
As civilians, they get left to twist in the wind after they have been used up, so I feel it's our responsibility to try to contribute to their well being, even if you are anti-war.
Pro-troop charities are good.
Also if you worry about where your money is going, give to local smaller organizations with transparent finances and a verifiable staff and history.
Or find a way to actually donate time, that way you know that your efforts are going where you intended them to go.
Contributing to the well being of kids and the elderly is pretty easy by donating actual time. There are lots of different ways to do that and know for sure that your efforts are going where you intend them to go.
