Charity @ GunPoint — The Democrat Way

Well…ya see.

It’s like this.

I have no problem with helping the poor and the needy.

I’ve given folks spare change. I’ve bought clothing for children in Afghanistan, Cambodia, Thailand and Egypt. Among other places.

I’ve helped rebuild schools, supply schools and have given classes in non-industrial and pre-industial nations.

I’ve worked for charities such as Meals on Wheels in America.

I’ve given tons of stuff to Good Will and the Salvation Army.

I’ve sent money to causes all around the world and in America.

I’ve done all of this and I quite thoroughly enjoy helping others who are poverty stricken or in some way in need of assistance.

WHAT I DON’T WANT and WHAT I DON’T LIKE is giving money to a corrupt, bloated bureaucracy such as the Federal Government of the United States of America so that said bloated, corrupt bureaucracy can waste nearly all of said money by giving it to corrupt, bloated turds of the Republican and Democrat Party Donors Association.

No, I do not think that the United States Government is a good agency for my money or the honest disbursal of said monies to those who are poverty stricken and in need of assistance.

Oh yeah…I’m not Christian. So I don’t really care what kind of person the myth of Christ makes him out to be.

Help the Children ~ Northern Thailand

We would like to raise enough money to help the next village school.

We usually raise around 150,000bht (5,000USD).  We would like to raise that amount for our January trip to Northern Thailand.

This will allow us to re-build a school, feed the children, rent vehicles to get out to the village and provide new clothes, school supplies and toys for the children.

The funding will go towards food and supplies.

We usually feed three meals a day for two to three villages full of children for a week (300 children and their families).

We rent local vehicles from around Chiangmai for a week to carry us and the supplies out to the village.

We purchase a years worth of school supplies and deliver them to a village.  If we have more supplies than one village school will need, we take the remainder and give them out to other villages in the Hill Tribe Area.  Last year, we were able to help several schools in the area.

We purchase clothing, shoes and winter coats for the children as well.  We usually purchase clothing on the Thai-Burmese border.  We can obtain mass amounts of clothing from this area fairly cheaply.  We donate all of this clothing to the children and in some cases to the local adults.  On the border, we purchase “lots” full of children’s clothing.  However, one never knows what will be in the mix.  Any adult clothing that we obtain, we hand out at the village.

Last year, we had enough left over clothing to pass out to several villages along our route.

We also hope to raise enough funds to employ a full time teacher and teaching assistant for this village for a year.

We will use all funds raised to help these children.

I am donating all supplies and materials for the perks as the first donation.

We Are The World ~ Haiti

Personally, I like it.  They updated it and signed on artists who will ensure great sales.

I don’t get the criticism of this effort. I liked the hip hop portion of the song.  This is a more contemporary tune with current music stars.  That will only help sales.

Anything that is done will be criticized by someone, though.

The only thing that I don’t like about the song is that it highlighted how out of touch I am with the States these days.  I didn’t know who half of the artists were.  I was amazed at the voices of Jennifer Hudson and Celine Dion.

I wish the endeavor success and I hope that the monies raised go towards helping the right people.

Kanchanaburi

On an early morning not too long ago, a few ladies and gents got together and made the world better for a school in a sleepy little place called Kanchanaburi near Bangkok, Thailand.

Funds were collected.  Supplies and Equipment purchased.  Then the task of planning and executing the movement from Bangkok to a sleepy village called Kanchanaburi and a little school on an Island.

That narrow little rope/plank bridge looks a little treacherous.  lol

The kids all look happy.

These generous folks put on a little show for the kids.  Played them a couple of animated movies.  Kung Fu Panda and another.  Served up a meal or two.  Handed out school supplies, uniforms and a few other essentials.

Spent the night in tents out on the school grounds.

And then quietly made their way home…

Leaving behind a hundred or so smiling young faces.

Here are pics of the event:

Helping others is good for the soul.
