    its a hard one bud,

    I sponser a kid overseas, but I made sure that the kids got to keep his own religion and that the sponsor "company
    had no ties to any particular religion.....

    I also sponsor from the same organisation into a "girls fund" as many young girls don't get the same opportunities as the guys in these places.

    and I sponsor animal funds too.....

    I think so long as youre doing it with good intentions and not doing it for show or for any other reason then it doesn't matter whether its an animal fund or human fund.

    if slime balls want to misuse the money, their karma will get them back.

    I sponsor a child in India, and I have just overbid on a basket of cat goodies being raffled by the refuge from where I got my kitties. I have bought and made items to raise funds for all sorts of human causes.......and I always put some tins of pet food in the donation bin when I shop.

    I've been thinking about how to say this without sounding like a heartless bastard but i'm hopleless at this so i'll just say it anyway .....

    Surely if a child needs to be sponsored , then maybe the parents should have put a bit more thought into why they had the child in the first place.

    Yeah, wars happen and people have to leave their homes ...this i can understand.... but if you live in a poor area where theres not enough food, clean water etc etc to raise a child successfully then conceiving one kid is a no brainer bad idea, let alone having 2 or 3 or more.

    Some animals dont breed if the environment isnt perfect for it . Why cant humans do the same.

    Yes, this does sound a bit heartless.

    Agree with you Sean. Maybe if they had free access to contraceptives these things wouldn't be as much as a problem.

    I just got a begging letter from the RSPCA - paper with a postage paid return envelope - which I have used to return them their begging letter and a letter of my own telling them that I think the practice of pestering previous donors for money by killing trees is a bad idea.

    Thinking of sending money to these guys - I think what they do desexing dogs on "the lands" is a good idea. RSPCA does have a program for Wilcannia and etc.

    Sean - I don't think family planning is high on the list of things to do in third and fourth world countries. And a lot of the aid places are run by anti contraceptive Christian based organisations - so it helps to send your money to one that will provide contraception. A lot of women don't get the "just say no" option either. Huge numbers are raped and the extra unplanned children can be the product of this.

    Maybe we should sponsor vasectomies for African men or long term contraceptives for women.
