    That would depend entirely on what they need help with.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    yes but it seems noone needs help from others nowadays. It seems you can only give money, and that the people themselves are the only able to help themselves.

    I would just pick one or two charities you want to give money to.

    There's only so much you can do and you can't give money to everyone.

    I give some money every month to WSAP, which is a charity for animals.
    I've not decided on the second one yet, I'm kinda hovering between Shelter and Sponsor a child ( good site JP btw , ta for that).
    I also put my change in the buckets in supermarkets and shops etc...

    It's not much but if everyone does the same there'll be plenty I suppose


    I can't remember who it was here, but I believe one of the members used to make packages with food, a bible, some chocolate etc and give them out to homeless people.

    Or you can volunteer in a charity shop, that's pretty good fun as well actually.

    Give away clothes you don't wear anymore etc etc

    I think Skweeky's right. I support Worldvision, Oxfam and Unicef via direct debits. You forget about it once it's done and just take it as being part of the normal expenditure. So you never realy think of having the money. Oh and if you sign the forms they get the tax back as well.

    I also try to support charities for stuff I would spend anyway. e.g. this years Chistmas cards are from CHAS (Childrens Hospice Appeal Scotland). I've got them there the last cople of years, a chap in the work makes an order.

    You can actually help quite a lot without making grand gestures. Everyone doing a little can add up.

    You will see from above that I personlly like to support childy type charities, probly coz I've got about a brazillion of my own.

    Absolutely

    And you can spend some more money on things you like by buying it from a specific organisation.
    My boyfriend really likes coffee, so we spend some more money on buying fair trade Oxfam brand. There's loads of little things you can do and you don't really miss the money.
    Even buying the little pins or ribbons for the breast cancer campaigns.

    You can do things at work as well.

    We have two dress down days a month, everyone gives a pound for that so that's quite a bit of money to give away every month.
    You can do sponsored walks/runs if you're into sports,...

    There's so soooo much you can do without being out of pocket!
