At WebmasterWorld we all have access to a computer with internet access.

At WebmasterWorld we all are someway well off and can afford to give a few [choose currency] away to others who are not so lucky.

Red Cross International: [redcross.org...]
Amnesty International: [amnesty.org...]
Doctors Without Frontiers: [msf.org...]

Just a few, choose your own way!

Danish relief organasations: [solopgang.dk...] (in danish)

Bill Gates has donated $100.000.000 to fight AIDS in Africa and another $100.000.000 to fight AIDS in India, if he can do it, we can do it too!

Merry Christmas everybody

Excellent
Apart from simple (but needed) cash donations, we could put links on our 'highly visible' pages to our favourite charity sites asking visitors to donate for christmas.

Note:>At WebmasterWorld we all are someway well off
Errrrm, wish I was :) What am I doing wrongż

"well off" compared to less than $1 a day per family in too many places...

Our local Salvation Army had a big food bank drive last weekend. They drive around town with police cars (sirens going etc, very exciting) and volunteers collecting bags of groceries from the houses. It conveniently came the day after our grocery shopping day so we were able to donate a big bag of stuff we bought specially. Sometimes giving something tangible like that feels better than donating money, specially since we got to actually hand over the bag and see it added to the trailor loads of stuff they already had. :)

Our bank usually has an "adopt a child" program for Christmas. You choose a name from the Christmas tree (we choose a teenager since little ones are often chosen first) then buy gift requests for the child, plus add in extras to the Christmas package. Its a great feeling to make a child's Christmas better in this way.
