What To Give To

Hi everyone, today I was supposed to have a baseball practice but(t) it started to rain. But now for some reason the rain stopped. There's one thing good about that-- I get more time to write.

Each month my GRAND parents and I give $100,000,000,000,000 to some charity. I'm just kidding, we only give $100. But we don't just give it randomly, we decide as a family which charities to give to. We sit down together and talk about them and divide it equally. And sometimes I decide that I want to give to only one because at that time it just seems real important with the event that's happening.

So far we've given to Habitat for Humanity, Samaritans Purse, Smile Train and Doctors Without Borders.

Some others we might give to in the future are USO which helps families of Armed Forces, Feeding America which helps feed people who don't have food and Friends of the World Food Program which wants to stop world hunger. My grandparents know a lot of others but most of them I don't know. We'll decide each month what we'll do.

If you have suggestions or any other sites, please tell me them. I will gladly look into giving them some money.

It's important to do these things to help the world and all the people and less fortunate people who need help. God believes helping others is the right thing to do. I do, too.

Hi Casey! I thought sure after you got a St. Jude's tie that you'd choose the hopital as one of your charities. But now I see all the other things, I think you had already done quite a lot before you got the tie. I should have known! You're a very special guy! Peg

Actually my grandparents do give to St.Jude. Maybe one month we'll decide to do that with the money.

Hi Casey,
Would your Grandmother mind if I put here blog on mine?

Hi Casey,

It is wonderful that you have a strong belief in helping others that are less fortunate.

I love your baseball pictures.

Pet Scratch for me.

Little P, no my gramma wouldn't mind at all. Would you sign up as a follower on my blog? You do it on the sidebar.

Thank you, Grandma Kim. I appreciate the comment. I'm glad you like my baseball picture. And I gave a big hug and pet to Scratch from you. The house is a big mess right now. We're remodeling the kitchen and TV room and bathroom. I hate it this way.

KZ, how wonderful that you as a family make a decision together every month! That is great. I really like the groups you support (Doctors without Borders is one I support every month) and I am sure they do wonderful things. Another group that does great work in health is called Partners in Health. They have programs in many countries; I support their program in Haiti which I think is very good.

It is great that you learn about these things already!!

Hi Snail, I've heard about the one you mentioned--Partners for Health. I might give to it sometime. Probably will. Watch for my picture with my glasses. Bye Snail, See you later Snail, Can't wait to see you, Snail. Ciao Snail.

Casey,
Yours is the first blog I have ever left a comment on. I have followed your & your grandparents journeys from slowtalk/slowtrav, so the suggestion I have for your donation would be for you to sponsor Kim, a moderator from slowtalk
http://www.slowtrav.com/blog/kim/archives/007905.html
in the cancer walk she is participating in. I think it is wonderful that you get to do this and I'm sure your choice will be a good one.

KZ said...

Leslie, thanks for telling me this. I just did it.
