Daily Prompt: The internet has recently been swept up by the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Is there a cause — social, political, cultural, or other — you passionately believe in? Tell us how you got involved — or why you don’t get involved.
Is it really bad for me to say this? I wouldn’t say I was ‘passionate’ about many causes at all. Of course, that doesn’t mean I don’t believe in them; I hate to see people starving around the world as much as the next person, but I don’t want to have the images forced down my throat and then be made to feel guilty about it. I donate to charity and have raised a decent amount of money before, but sometimes I feel like too many charities are, in a way, quite demanding. I think I prefer smaller charity groups – recently a group I was in raised enough money to buy a laptop and projector for a small HIV support centre. They were so grateful and it was fun to do as well!
