    I prefer donating in my own country to help with problems we face, in areas of my choosing.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    I think a sudden tragedy like Haiti or the Bushfires last year or the floods in CHina are different - they are sudden things that need immediate help. People will forget Haiti soon enough - just like they have bushfire survivors to a great extent. It isn't current anymore so the media dont care and if they dont care - most of us dont. We are all part of the conspiracy lol

    The problems with dogs are ongoing and need a concerted effort to fix them over time.

    The reason we give to foreign causes is not, in my opinion, because we care more about them, but because we either don't want to, or can't, see the the problems in our own back yards.

    There is an old saying - a camel can only see another camel's hump - time to turn around and see our own - but that is my opinion when it comes to any overseas charities.

    Good on you Christine for doing something - regardless of whether it is for Australia or overseas. If everyone did something positive, there would be no problem.

    With me, it isn't a matter of caring more for foreign dogs or local dogs - I generally care about dogs in all countries the same amount. It's just about not thinking that local dogs are my hump and other dogs are other people's humps - all dogs are everybody's humps, in my eyes, so I don't like drawing lines between countries where I donate or don't donate. I don't care if whatever I do helps a dog in Australia or some little island on the other side of the world - a dog is a dog after all. But at the same time, I can see how there are different perspectives to it and do see the other way of looking at it as well.
