I renewed my membership in Oxfam today. Oxfam was one of the first non-profits I ever became active with - in college I helped with tables and events. I learned how dedicated people could make a difference.
I also wrote a check to my federal and state governments today for taxes. I hope it goes to make the world better. I'm afraid a lot of it goes for horrible things like bombs and tanks and guns. Things that don't really add to the value of the world.
