Or do nothing. It won’t really adversely affect me. Most of us will continue living either way (and pretending that we are above watching trashy reality TV marathons and eating ‘junk’ food mixtures out of buckets). No one is going to guilt us into giving away our hard-fought-for excess money that we will be taking with us to the after-life to show whatever deity we believe in how awesome we are, right?
In the past I’ve given to Doctors Without Borders and they are great. (Sorry if I’m not using the French name like I should considering my general snobbiness level. I just can’t pronounce it to the satisfaction of the French stereotype voices inside my head. je suis désolé)
But the World Food Program (WFP) was brought to my attention by a dear but deeply mis-guided friend who is going to meditate in solitude and chat with ETs to solve the world’s problems. I’m taking a slightly different path…

The voices in my head are telling me that, by giving to charity, I’ve just done the equivalent of dowsing one of my music synthesizers in petrol and setting it on fire, then the fire spreading to burn the entire house down. It wouldn’t be cool like the Makemakes’ burning piano. (Austria’s entrant in Eurovision 2015)
You see, I’m not by nature a charitable person… Even writing this short-ish post has taken me more than 10 times longer than it should because I’m struggling with why I’ve given money away. But my ‘higher’ self has realised that, as bad as my life seems now and even if it gets much worse, I’m probably not going to die of a preventable disease and definitely not malnutrition! Forget about a spare tire, I’m carrying around a spare pink Leyland P76.

Disclaimer: We are looking for some kind of donation accepting non-profit model that allows us to create free content & live modestly, but half of anything that we get for The Emergence Start Now movement will be given to an approved charity. But that is for the bold future; probably in a post Star Wars Ep7 world.
