As we celebrate the holidays with our family and friends and give thanks for all the things we have—or at least we should. I must say it never ceases to astound me the level of first world complaining I encounter online and offline. I often think to myself what if something really big went down? How would the well fed first world respond?
In fact very few people are aware of how close we came during the banking crisis to a Walking Dead like break down of civilization. It was reported on the news last week that a fifth of the people in the UK thought Winston Churchill was a made up character from a book or movie.
So the first world needs to get woke
So the first world needs to get woke. But sadly as much of the first world has the mind set of a privileged teenager blissfully unaware of how their entitled freedom is not an entitlement, I don’t see this changing anytime soon.
But lets hope with all the doom and gloom, and over whelming news cycle of corruption and crisis that we can remember to give, to give back, and to keep in mind that we are all interconnected.
Please give and be well this holiday season
So today I am sharing with you five charities that you can give to this holiday season. And most of them allow you to give as much or as little as you want. And it is never to late to give, even after the season has passed.
Though, the Nordstrom giving tree is only through December 24th. But from aid to the refugees in Yemen to free legal aid to detainees at the border, to desks for children in Africa, to helping abused dogs of the meat trade. Please give and be well this holiday season.
