This past week, I feel like I spent too much money on nothing (that includes beer, cigarettes and eating out) and it make me think about the people who has nothing. Thus I want to make a small attempt to try to collect some money for them.
Thus if you click the UNICEF logo to the right, you will be taken to my donation site that I set up for my Biking for UNICEF race. I haven’t started the campagne properly yet, mainly because the race is in June and we are meeting winter wich is not the best time of the year to go biking in, but this doesn’t mean that kids all over the world don’t need money right now (for all my non-swedish readers, use the browsers translation function to read it in english).
The way I think about it when I donate money, is thinking about one thing that I can go without. I smoke, one pack of cigarettes cost me 49 sek, I can easily give up one pack of cigarettes and give 49 sek to UNICEF, this would give 20 doses of measles vaccine.
If you want to know exactly what your money will be used for, you can purchase something in the gift shop (it is annoying that they don’t have an english version of the page, use your browsers translate function). This way, you order what you want to donate, and the specific gift will be delivered to the kids in the world that need it the most right now.
I know that many people make monthly donations as well as in other ways working actively with charity, you will say that you are already doing something so you don’t have to do more. But think about all the extra karma points you will get for donating just 10 sek extra to help the kids in our world that doesn’t have it as good as we do.
Good karma points are the best!
