Hey Pit,
after contemplating it, i have decided to give away my christmas to charity, i came to this because i do not need anything, nor do i want anything and i would only be asking for something for the sake of christmas, when there are people who need it much more than me,

My question is

What Charity Should I Give It Away To? (It is going to be around £300-£400 in cash)

I have a few in mind but more options would be helpful, thanks

EDIT : so far unprivaleged kids at christmas is probally the one most likely, does anybody have any specific organizations?

EDIT : i might not be able to get all the money before christmas, which i would need to if it would go to unprivaleged kids at christmas,

being a bit of a hypochondriac iv thought about what it would be like to have cancer, having cancer is bad enough, but having beofre your life even starts is even worse, so im thinking the most likely option is Teen Cancer Trust

that or Water Aid, i hear they do alot of good stuff and not only cure but prevent

keep the suggestions coming though

Anyone deserving.

I don't celebrate christmas anymore. Don't see the point. I;d rather just be with my family and enjoy the atmosphere of contentment.

You should donate it to a local charity.

The Angel Foundation.

I dunno if it exists outside of Canada but theres probably comparable ones.

It's one who helps people who can't afford Christmas.

good for you man, i respect that
maybe make a wish? idk that just seems like a great charity and you know its going to a great cause, since the kid gets whatever they want

You should donate it to an organization that works in Afghanistan. They really need help building up, not only more soldiers going rampage.

Well, seeing as it's Christmas, it'd be logical to give it to one of those charities for underprivileged kids.
Good on you though, man.

pffft..anyone can give charity if they don't want anything..just wait untill you get GAS, then we'll see..


jk, I think it's a cool thing to do..but don't throw it away to anyone, look up different charities and check how your money would be spent

Seriously, give to this organization. I've given to them for about 2 years and I can guarantee its a very serious org. The Swedish state org SFI check em regularly so all the money goes where they are supposed to.

seeing as this is the pit, a charity that helps rape victims might add a touch of irony to the donation?

Since it's Christmas, how about a charity that buys toys for underprivileged kids.


This ^
My family donates toys and money to charities like this every year, it's a good cause.
wen i ask they say that they fall into the habit smhw ........but nyways i think there is a connection smwhere. Now i being a teetollar will not give into this habit nyhw

FOR JUST £2 A WEEK, YOU CAN PREVENT THIS.

Honestly, give me money. I could nab myself a prestige RG or some form of a high-end guitar if I add £300 of my own cash.

i dunno if the UK has the same charity, but Toys for Tots might be one good place.
little kids in poor families would get a present.


or maybe donate some of the money to a soup kitchen or homeless shelter.
put a few hours in working there, too.
you can meet a few of the people you're helping.
makes it more real, and you'll be inspired to give again, when you can.

btw,

Just a thought, when I used to go Trick or Treat'ing, my dad would take all the candy I didn't like to the hospital for the kids who couldn't go.

You might want to go around, no costume, with a pillow sack saying its for a good cause and you'll probably get a lot for those kids.

At the mall every year they have a christmas tree with a bunch of cards on it listing what different underprivileged kids want. My family used to get a couple of kids what they asked for every year. I think I'm going to do that this year.
