Thou shalt give, and give and give....
Every month I pay a certain amount of money to several good causes. At Christmas, however, they seem to forget, that throughout the year a lot of money has been paid, and I get all kind of , what I call, begging-letters with the most horrible photos of dying children and tortured animals. These photos have been sent for the past ten years to impress us and convince us, that we cannot have copious meals with turkey and all that, without giving one thought to the poor suffering world outside.
Of course there is some truth in it, but the way it is done is disgusting and which is even worse is the fact ,that some of these good causes don't even exist.
One of them is called "World children" another "Animal protection in the world".Both non -existing organisations. Some of those organisations choose names that look like those of real good organisations, hoping to fool us.Well, beware of those greedy impostors!
