Views #899 Money and Charity

First question is do you give money to charity? Katia: Well, Paul, it's a difficult question because you really want to help people, but I always question myself where if the money really gets to where it's supposed to go, so personally I rarely do give money to charities. I'd rather give my time, so I know if it's actually something happening. What about you? Paul: Yeah, I guess that makes sense. Katia: Yeah, I guess so, but really I wonder. Paul: How about if you're walking down the street and you see a homeless person asking for money? Katia: Homeless people! Paul: Yeah, I'd agree with you. Katia: Why not men and only women? Paul: Well, going back to what you said about supporting their way of life, I mean, not in every case, but I think that often it can just be man's choice to be homeless on the street and he does have a chance to get a job I think.

Google's One Today makes it so easy to donate, you have no reason not to

If you can’t donate your time, the least you can do is donate a little money to someone in need, and with Google’s One Today app you can easily find a new nonprofit to help support. I’ve written before about apps that help you choose a charity to work with, but One Today is particularly neat because it makes giving with your smartphone more interactive. The app will notify you each day of a different nonprofit to check out based on your interests; the more you give, the better the app gets at picking one that interests you. You can offer to donate between $1-$10, or set up a match donation to rally your friends on social media and collectively contribute even more money. The more people you bring on board, the more rallying power you have in your giving profile. One Today. Charities and charitable organizations or people - synonyms and related words.

They will work in groups to decide which of four charities they should give the money to. Learners will first work in a group, reading about one of the charities and preparing their arguments for why their charity should receive the £100.
