I think about this a lot. What can you do to make a difference? It’s really difficult to step out of yourself and view the world from a distance but just a reminder that the world you live in doesn’t stop at you and that all of the money you spend on worthless products that will fall apart next month, could go to help humans in other countries who, unfortunately, really really need it. Another reminder that humans in other countries aren’t just stories you watch from your television at home… every day is just as real for them as it is for you and I, so help them - help make tomorrow better for everyone. Hunger is huge and I don’t know about you, but i’ll go about three hours and need food again, so imagine days/weeks. Lack of clean water - think about washing out the coffee pot and you just let it overflow? Save clean water people. Sex trafficking - HUGE and nobody ever talks about it, but it’s so prevalent - so donate and be educated. The sex trade makes approx. 32 billion dollars a year (9 billion alone in the US and approx 100,000 new girls from the US every year with the average age being 13 / 14) - passing the arms trade, it stands as the second largest criminal organization and is expected to pass the drug trade soon, making it number one. & you’re telling me that nobody talks about this? Because it’s dangerous, especially when it happens so close to home. Kids. Children. Young adults. Donate to that. Help get those girls back home. Not to mention the countries that are going through / go through natural disaster devastation and need aid and help to rebuild what they’ve lost. AND last on my mind but certainly not least are the countries that don’t have access or financial means to build hospitals. People are sick / injured / dying and they don’t have a place to go or the right medicine to prevent illnesses - so donate to that as well. Donate to get them (again, real life humans) the treatment they need.
Again, I understand it’s hard to look past your own world and the luxuries that we are so privileged to have but please understand that the world stretches far further than you and I and the useless shit we buy. Humans are humans, (read that again) - they have feelings and needs and the hope to live to see another day - and the location difference, skin difference, language difference, and the economical standing difference, makes NO DIFFERENCE. & since we as a country and as every day people are financially able to help those in need, it is our responsibility to do that. Imagine if one of every 1,652 of my followers here donated 10 dollars. That’s around 16,000 dollars to make a difference. Underneath I added some organizations so I mean, if you can - donate, be educated.
