Thursday Thirteen – #10
I can’t believe I almost missed Thursday Thirteen again this week…
In the spirit of Idol Gives Back, which was an awesome show that I almost missed too, here are 13 ways to give back – online.
1 to 6: On my sidebar I have my ‘one-click donations.’ All you got to do is go to those sites and click on the button to make a donation. It doesn’t even take 5 minutes of your time (on hi-speed Internet)
7 to 9 Care2.com is another site that offers you an opportunity to click to donate and they have quite a number of campaigns going there. Sign up to learn more of what you can do. Click on these three buttons to start your own race.
10 Save the Children UK used to have a Philippine office and I was involved with some of their projects as a teener. You can shop at their site to make a difference. Just click on the logo and it’ll take you to their page.
11 ECPAT is a global network of organizations dedicated to combat the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children. I was very active in this network in my young life and was involved in many activities. Here’s a link to a page that lets you make donations to the cause through PayPal, but please explore their website for information on this issue plaguing the world’s children.
Ok, I am two links short but I really got to go and get ready for work tonight. I’ll come back and add two more to these links. C’mon, let’s all give back…
13 This website is for a local foundation taking care of abused and abandoned girl children. I’ve never really worked directly with the organization itself but I’ve worked with some of their girls in the past, through my involvement at ECPAT and the youth organization we built – Young People against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Childern. Visit the CRIBS Foundation website and checkout their How to help link to find out how you can help a child in the Philippines.
Move along now, you got 13 sites to help you give back 🙂

I’m a huge idol fan and can’t believe I missed this last night. Great list of charities. I’m all about funding books for kids. Happy T13!

Excellent list and great way to play on the American Idol show last night…I missed it due to a previous scheduled commitment.
I had fun visiting your TT.
Mine is at The Cafe.
Hope you’ll drop by.

“Today I remembered how I was so interested to maybe even organize a local chapter or start something like this here. Maybe I shouldn’t give up on that.”
I would love to see you do that. I actually found another US foundation (forgot the name now, but what they do is provide blankets and other necessities to unprivileged babies) but when I contacted them they also said they weren’t ready for a Philippine chapter. I don’t know how you plan on pursuing it but I’m giving you 100% support.

I haven’t sat down to think about this yet but I know that I will, eventually. I’m thinking about rounding up friends I worked with in the past and start things up but I need to come up with initial drafts and all.
I’ll be sure to notify you when this takes off. 🙂 Thanks!
