To buy things you don't need

It's almost Christmas!!! *officially starts countdown*

While everyone in "first world countries" are cracking their heads
(Malaysia is technically not a first world country)
for what presents to give to whom,
I think it's appropriate to pull you down and
make you see what else should be done.

While you're busy shopping and hoping for presents,
I think it's a good time to introduce everyone,
to this list.

Go on, click on it.

If you chose not to and continued to read,
shame on you.

It's a list called "10 Images of Where Children Sleep Around the World"
You'll see the contrast on how children
live different lives in different countries.

If you don't feel sorry at all after going through that list,
there's something wrong in your conscience department.

If that list got you, somehow,
and you feel like giving, even just for once,
for the sake of Christmas spirit and "the spirit of giving",
I'm more than happy to introduce World Vision to you.

All readers, this is World Vision,
World Vision, here are my readers.

Introduction done.

Ok, to make a longer introduction short and and shorter intro more informative,
part of World Vision's aim is to help communities around the world
and change their lives for the better
through upgrades which are funded
by contributions from "first world countries".

To make your contributions easier,
I've listed out the links and ways of helping.

For one shot contributions,
you can choose to donate

 for agriculture

for economic development

for children's education

And if you're working or even if you're studying
but have money to spend on chatime or starbucks drink,
ipads or tablets or smartphones or your second digital camera,
why not help someone who really needs the money?

With the money you use to get any of those devices
(which you probably already have and are just planning to get a new one)
you can actually sponsor a child (maybe even 2) for ONE WHOLE YEAR.

If you're interested in sponsoring a child but can't afford to give a near thousand ringgit contribution one shot
try this link for the FAQ.

From that link,
if you choose to sponsor a child,
you'll be given the choices of giving every month,
every quarter,
every half a year and every year.

With so many options of donating,
what is your excuse of not giving?

Spend a little less on clothes and gadgets,
junk food and overpriced drinks,
and you'll be able to help families and even communities.

Let's do this.

That's what J_Fish has to say~ Au Revoir~

if you have other ways of helping,
feel free to drop them in the comments and I'll add them to this post
or write another post for it. =)
