Now that I’ve debunked any anti-charity sentiments that you might have held, who are you planning to donate to this Christmas? So far, I’ve decided to do a couple of things.
Firstly I’m going to give a couple of things to the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal. They are looking for gifts for children under the age of 17 and for the elderly. I’m planning on choosing something appropriate for a teenage boy, as people don’t commonly buy for them, and also for a small baby, as baby toys are easy to pick out.
Secondly, I’m going to be making a donation to Shelter. I may not consider myself to be a Christian, and I am certainly aware that the celebration predates the Nativity, but it seems appropriate to give to a homelessness charity at Christmas when you consider that the story tells of a couple who had nowhere to stay for the birth of their first child. Two thousand years ago that may have been acceptable, but it certainly isn’t now.
I’m sure that you’re all more warm and generous than I am, so tell me about your Christmas charity plans and ideas.

- I don’t give to charity because…. debunked
- using fad toys to educate children
