I don’t believe you really like Frank Sinatra

Watching the ads on British tv these days there is no escape from the charities fighting for your hard earned. Every day there are ads for dog and cat shelters, water aid for the so-called 3rd world, help children living in the streets in India or give to the NSPCC so they can put a smile on more children’s faces.

All very deserving and in desperate need of some extra funding. Our Government used to have millions allocated every year to give to charities both at home and abroad but because money is tight since the credit crunch and downturn from 2008 onwards this source of funding has dried up. This is the 21st Century and surely we should all be helping those worse off to become better able to help themselves? After all money only goes so far and without the ability to spread any funding further by giving people the opportunity to be trained so they can work to promote their own well being it’s just a bottomless pit for limited funds.

The old saying is so very true, give a man a fish and you feed him for one day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for life. We should be sending people out there to teach people how to drill wells for water and end the shortage of clean drinking water once and for all. Not everyone who gets a dog will take care of it, we all know this so why is it a surprise that there are always more dogs than spaces for them with people who care what happens to them?

I know this is my third blog post in two days and it is also the second post today but I post when I have something to say and hope that you don’t mind me taking up some more of your time today, dear reader.
