A Day To Do Good

Today is Good Friday, and even though I am not even remotely religious, I think it's as deserving an opportunity as any to think about others and do some good. Plus, there was a certain discussion on a certain internet chat board that I frequent that also got me all hot and bothered to donate to some charities.

This year, I'm getting a pimped-out return on my income taxes thanks to some mad RRSP contributions, yo. So, I'm going to put half of it back into RRSPs, spend a quarter of it on whatever I like, and the last quarter will be given to help others. This quarter is a big step up from what I normally donate but if I can manage it, why not?

I have decided to donate to The Foster Parents Plan and The Canadian Cancer Society but I have some room for one more. If you were me, what would you choose?

Since you asked...

Although we share the same name, I'm not you, and I probably can't put myself in your shoes (unless they are a size 6?). However, if you're really stuck on finding another charity to donate to, I would probably suggest the MS Society of Canada, which is one that I will be donating to this year (as always). Specifially, you could even sponsor my good friend who's father has MS... HERE and you can get that warm fuzzy feeling knowing that you touched one life in a very personal way. :)

Have a happy Easter!

Doctors Without Borders is where I'd send money to as well. Good for you, Jen, you're a wonderful person.
