I don’t have much money. No, compared to some people I am very comfortable. I don’t do charity donations. I will not give money to companies that pay their executives huge salaries. That’s my decision.
What I will do is donate time, effort and skills to anyone who needs it. Is there a family around here that is short of funds? Fine – I’ll pole up with a bag full of groceries.
I knit – I will make anything for anyone who needs it.
Now we get down to the nitty gritty – do you commit £2 a month to the donkey sanctuary (or whatever) or do you throw your door open to someone who needs shelter? No prizes for guessing what we do … come on over, it may only be a bed in our caravan for as long as you need it. If that is your only hope of getting out of a rotten situation, we’re here.
Don’t think we’re a soft touch, we’re not, we’ll expect you to live as family, pitch in and help. But the bed is there if you need it.
