    Yeah, there's stuff in quite a few places.
    I gave 200 to a bogstandard Red Cross thing yesterday - you can always trust them.
    Whatever you do, be wary of who you give to - use well-known charities and don't trust random things. It's rather disgraceful of course but there are always plenty who use this sort of thing to get people to "donate" to themselves, using the pseudonym of a Global tragedy.
    And curse them, too...

    It really is almost beyond belief... quite a disgrace to the human-race, that anyone could use the mass suffering for personal gain... but so many do - all the time.

    Yeah when I did the Salvo's Red Shield Appeal you HAD to have a SIGNED badge to wear around your neck and the people MUST be able to see it etc. etc.... It's abhorrent what some people will do.
