no its not! I wanted to go help out on a ship, but it would cost money to volunteer. lol
I think all we can really do is do our part locally. Like volunteer at soup lines and giving food to the homeless and needy. I think its safe to say, the local organizations are legit, after all, you see the end result immediately in your own town and there really is no room for profits of any sort.
There are some issues, like the Africa thing, I heard that it has something to do with the diamond business that our donated food and money doesn't get there. Perhaps if we all boycott vanity, the price of such inane bling bling possessions will lose their value and the starving could get their food. Im sure its much more intricate than that, but damn, I really wish I knew a for sure way to help. Its not like you can just directly mail some food over there to a homeless family. Maybe some members that live in the areas that need help, could help us figure out a way to actually directly send stuff that will be distributed and reported back to us that it was successful. who knows, i like your attitude though, thank you for being a compassionate human be[b/]ing
