C.H.A.R.I.T.Y

I was enjoying my Sunday afternoon with a cup of tea and turned on the TV and saw this commercial for a humanitarian organization, which leads me to writing this post about C.H.A.R.I.T.Y.

During my childhood my dad often told my siblings and I the importance of charity and the fact that if you are able to give anything to people in need, you should do that. I couldn’t agree more with my dad and that’s why I have been supporting Unicef and Folkekirkens Noedhjaelp with a monthly contribution and these 2 organizations have done so much good work for people in need. But there are of course lots of other organizations that do really great work like Amnesty, WFP, WSPA and etc.

But lately I have been supporting the Danish homeless people by buying their news paper “Hus Forbi” by giving dkk 20,- (around USD 3,50) for each. I really love this project “Hus Forbi” and it¬†started back in 1996 in Copenhagen and this gives the homeless people the opportunity to earn their own money by selling the news papers. You give DKK 20 for 1 news paper and DKK 8 goes to the sales man of it and the rest DKK 12 goes to the production, administration and distribution of the news papers.

And the great thing about Denmark is that your contributions to charity can be deducted in taxes, which means you can get some of the contributions back in your pocket.

With this post about charity I just want to tell people that the less fortunate people and also animals out there need our help. So please do not choose to look away on this matter and if you can help out by giving a small contribution or in any other way can help out, please do so.

Happy Sunday!

Grateful

Last night I couldn’t sleep and 1 thought hit me which was : I am not just A person but I am a lot of things to other people and unfortunately I forget about it a lot.

For example :

I am a daughter of 3 lovely people (Yes 3)

I am a sister to 12 sipplings (Yes 12)

I am an aunt to so far 12 wonderful kids (yes 12)

I am a girlfriend to loving men (kidding) a loving man

A godmother to the cutest girl

A friend to great and loyal friends

A cousin to God knows how many

A blogger who has a good network on wordpress.com

and the list can be continued

But what I am trying to say here is that I should be more grateful and appreciate the people around me, so this post is a reminder to myself : Be GRATEFUL and THANKFUL ¬†for the people in my life and for all “the roles” I get to play in their lives!
