Cultural Taboos Surrounding Organ Donation #education #charity

Cultural Taboos Surrounding Organ Donation

Taboos are “…vehement prohibition(s) of an action based on the belief that such behavior is either too sacred or too accursed for ordinary individuals to undertake, under threat of supernatural punishment” (Wikipedia ). Of the reasons why some people are opposed to becoming organ donors, few are actual real taboos. The ideal of wholeness of self is particularly important in most Asian cultures and this real taboo is perhaps the major reason why deceased organ donation is not well accepted in most Asian countries.

I did a little informal research on this subject by asking my Asian friends about this taboo.

Alex replied: “You’re right that there is a reluctance to donate among the Taiwanese/Chinese community due to cultural barriers. Many Chinese think the body needs to be ‘whole’ to go to heaven. Also, myths persist that doctors will not try very hard to save you if you are an organ donor—though this belief is not specific to Chinese or Asians in general.”

Sally said: “Regarding the cultural barriers and taboos about organ donation, it is definitely not one of the best ideas/concepts that the Asian population harbor. (However, the idea of being a live donor is beginning to be more positively accepted.) To the Asian population, they normally think of organ donation as a means of removing organs from a body after death. In Asian customs/culture, many take into consideration bodily integrity in which was brought up in their beliefs. Also, this action is deemed as invasive and almost ‘rude’ to have organs removed from a body after death. The Asian population are very careful and respect the body after death and the concept of keeping the body ‘whole’ because the body also takes part in traditional ceremonial funerals that places emphasis on the ‘wholeness’ of the body. Therefore they do not particularly like the idea of organ donation.”

Wendy adds: “Yes, in China, organ donation is a sensitive topic that people would not like to discuss unless there is a very close relative involving. In Chinese culture, a person s body should be interred intact, because people believe there is afterlife. Today, the organ donation system is relatively new for Chinese, and signing up for organ donation is generally not favored by the parents. However, if a family member needs organ transplantation, his/her relatives would consider living organ donation such as bone marrow, liver or kidney. “

Finally, Sarah’s perspective: “Personally, I support organ donation and am a registered donor. I was also born and raised in mainland China which holds a belief that death is far from a pleasant cultural topic. In 2011, a person who donated his organ made to the national news…Organ donation is culturally unusual to majority of Chinese.

Buddhism had been and still is a dominant religion in mainland China and Taiwan. Buddhists believe that a person who died would enter into a cycle to have a second life only if that person had done good things and died in one piece. Because of this death philosophy, many elderly Chinese are strong believers of that being unable to die in one piece is a serious punishment.

Secondly, it is culturally common for Chinese to believe that death is only final when the person stops breathing and the heart stops beating, so the concepts of Ventilation and other life supports and brain death are very controversial. China enacted its first organ donation law in 2007, in which there was no legislation on the definition of brain death. This just tells us culture can be a strong influence on raising public willingness to become an organ donor. “

Sarah also sent me this picture for our bLifeNY “We love you for signing up to be an organ donor” Facebook campaign (thanks to David Omdahl, Chunkit Fung. and Google Translate for the translation). All of her friends in this pic were born and raised in China and all are registered organ donors. So cultural beliefs can change not only from one generation to the other, but (I believe with appropriate education) within generations.

Things aren’t always so simple, however. Audrey and Derek are registered organ donors, but Audrey’s parents are vehemently opposed to donation. They actually had language inserted into their living wills and powers of attorney stating their desire to be organ donors when they pass!

This taboo is not confined to Asian cultures. Only 5% of Orthodox Jews are registered organ donors despite the fact that most rabbinical authorities permit and encourage organ donation. The concerns are that two aspects of Jewish law might be violated: Kavod Ha-met (honor of the dead) and Nivul Ha-met (disgrace of the dead). These concerns, however, are largely a matter of perspective and Jews who are uncertain if donation would honor God’s name are encouraged to discuss this with their own rabbi. As Mishnah Sanhedrin 4:6 says, “Whoever saves one life, it is as if he saved the entire world.”

African Americans and Hispanics often cite a distrust of established authority as a reason for not wanting to register to become an organ donor. And we Americans in general don’t like to think about or talk about death. But these really aren’t taboos in the strictest sense. Similar to taboos, though, these perceptions can soften or change.

We all need to understand and respect these taboos and cultural barriers. They are potentially surmountable if we respectfully and compassionately educate our youth, engage our religious and cultural leaders, encourage family conversations, and emphasize the goodness of donation. Languages change. Cultures change. Individuals can change. It’s a simple matter of perspective. Simple yet oh so challenging!

History of How BartCop Started
By Marc Perkel

It was about 18 years ago in 1996 when one day someone forwarded an email from an email publication that Terry was writing called Rush Limbaugh Lying Nazi Whore – Issue #45.

Message from Mrs. Bart

Thank you so much for allowing Bartcop to exist. I enjoyed your story about the history.
The Bob Dole story is really funny. It was good to be laughing at something Terry wrote.
I’ve been reading the posts. There is so much grief, gratitude and love out there for him and the page.
I’m really amazed by it. Not just me grieving.

Message from Democratic Underground

I pulled this comment by “Skinner” who I think founded DU, in the Bartcop thread he writes:

Back in the days when there was no “liberal blogosphere” or “netroots”; there were only “anti-Bush websites”.
Before DU there was Buzzflash, Smirking Chimp, and BartCop.
That was pretty much the entire liberal presence on the internet.
Bart gave DU a prominent link on his homepage, and sent us lots of traffic.
I think it is arguable that he did more for DU than anyone else on the Internet.

Thank you, Bart. RIP.

Old Cell Phones: Recycle, Resell or Reuse #text #to #donate

Old Cell Phones: Recycle, Resell or Reuse

If you re like most cell phone users, then you upgrade your mobile phone every 18-24 months. Because of this constant turnover, it s estimated that Americans have more than 500 million old cell phones sitting in drawers, storage boxes and landfills.

In spite of these large figures, when it comes to proper disposal, only about 2% of owners choose to recycle old cell phones. Why are the numbers for recycling cell phones so low? Most likely, it s simply a lack of understanding about how to dispose of mobile phones properly.

Cell phones are a form of e-waste and can not be casually thrown away. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, cell phones and accessories are made from valuable metals, copper, and plastics which require energy to extract and manufacture. Recycling cell phones reduces greenhouse gas emissions and conserves natural resources.

There are several eco-friendly options for disposing of an old cell phone. These include Recycling, Reselling or Reusing (aka donate your cell phone!).

Recycling Cell Phones

Many nonprofit organizations, service providers and cell phone manufacturers have programs which refurbish cell phones or recycle their components. A large number of recycled cell phones are able to be resold as refurbished phones. The first step is to contact the manufacturer—AT T, Verizon, Sprint, etc—to see if they will recycle the mobile phone for you. If they won t take the phone back, then move on to a local retailer. Companies such as Best Buy, Office Depot, Sprint, Radio Shack and Staples sometimes have recycling drop off locations located right there in the store.

Resell Cell Phones for Cash

There are organizations that will buy your old mobile devices—if you have the right model. Often companies that offer cash for used cell phones are only looking for recent models and/or smart phones. You can also do a search on sites like Craigslist to see if your phone is in demand.

Reuse (Donate Cell Phones to Charity)

Reuse is the highest form of recycling. Organizations, such as the Charitable Recycling Program, collect old mobile devices to raise money for the charity of your choice. You can also choose to start a recycling program for your own charity. Little Caesars is currently sponsoring a program called Cell Phones for Soldiers. They are collecting cell phones which will raise money to provide calling cards for the troops to call home.

Mobile phones can have very serious human health and environmental impacts. cell phones contain lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic. If old phones are thrown into the trash, these toxic materials ultimately end up in landfills where it can seep into the soil and contaminate groundwater.

Of course, now that you know how to recycle an old cell phone, making the environmentally-friendly choice is a no-brainer. Remember when it comes to cell phones: Recycle, Resell or Reuse.

    Few Extremists in Islam – That – s a Myth #boat #donations

    #islamic charities

    #

    I t is simply false to declare that jihadists represent the “tiny few extremists” who sully the reputation of an otherwise peace-loving and tolerant Muslim faith. In reality, the truth is far more troubling — that jihadists represent the natural and inevitable outgrowth of a faith that is given over to hate on a massive scale, with hundreds of millions of believers holding views that Americans would rightly find revolting. Not all Muslims are hateful, of course, but so many are that it’s not remotely surprising that the world is wracked by wave after wave of jihadist violence.

    To understand the Muslim edifice of hate, imagine it as a pyramid — with broadly-shared bigotry at the bottom, followed by stair steps of escalating radicalism — culminating in jihadist armies that in some instances represent a greater share of their respective populations than does the active-duty military in the United States.

    The base of the pyramid, the most broadly held hatred in the Islamic world, is anti-Semitism, with staggering numbers of Muslims expressing anti-Jewish views. In 2014, the Anti-Defamation League released the results of polling 53,100 people in 102 countries for evidence of anti-Semitic attitudes and beliefs. The numbers from the majority-Muslim world are difficult to believe for those steeped in politically correct rhetoric about Islam. A full 74 percent of North African and Middle Eastern residents registered anti-Semitic beliefs. including 92 percent of Iraqis, a whopping 69 percent of relatively secular Turks, and 74 percent of Saudis.

    The trend toward Muslim anti-Semitism continues even when Muslim nations are far removed from the Arab–Israeli conflict. A solid majority — 61 percent — of majority-Muslim Malays harbor anti-Semitic attitudes, while only 13 percent of neighboring majority-Buddhist Thais are anti-Jewish.

    The next level of the pyramid is Muslim commitment to deadly Islamic supremacy. In multiple Muslim nations, overwhelming majorities of Muslims support the death penalty for apostasy or blasphemy. Collectively, this means that hundreds of millions of men and women support capital punishment for the exercise of the basic human rights of freedom of expression and free exercise of religion:

    Moving beyond Islamic supremacy to the next step of the pyramid, enormous numbers of Muslims are terrorist sympathizers. It is still stunning to see how popular Osama bin Laden was early last decade, and even as his popularity plunged (as he grew weaker and more isolated), his public approval remained disturbingly high:

    But what about ISIS — the world’s most savage and deadly terror organization? The latest polling data show that while a majority of Muslims reject ISIS, extrapolating from the populations of polled countries alone shows that roughly 50 million people express sympathy for a terrorist army that burns prisoners alive, throws gay men from buildings, and beheads political opponents. In Pakistan a horrifying 72 percent couldn’t bring themselves to express an unfavorable view of ISIS:

    But sympathy for terror is different from active support, and here’s where the numbers are difficult to pin down. I know of no reliable database that shows how many Muslims give to jihadist charities, spread jihadist propaganda on social media, support radical preachers, or otherwise take concrete actions to advance the terrorists’ cause. We do know, for example, that anti-Israel terrorism is so popular in Saudi Arabia that a telethon once raised $100 million to support the 2002 intifada. Shows of support included this charming scene:

    A 6-year-old boy, with a plastic gun slung over his shoulder and fake explosives strapped around his waist, walked into a donation center and made a symbolic donation of plastic explosives, according to Al Watan daily.

    It is from this fertile soil that jihadists grow. And here the numbers decisively belie the “few extremists” rhetoric. In Iran alone, the Revolutionary Guard represents a proportionate share of the population similar to the combined strength of the active-duty Army and Marines here in the United States. Between Boko Haram, the Al-Nusra front, ISIS, Hezbollah, Hamas, al-Qaeda, the Taliban, Yemeni militias, Libyan militias, and many others, the number of active jihadists numbers in the hundreds of thousands; some estimates indicate that 100,000 are fighting in Syria alone.

    To give a sense of proportion, the United States is a nation that honors military service, respects its veterans, and engages in a massive military recruiting effort that includes offering soldiers generous salaries, pensions, benefits, and the best military equipment in the world. Even then, only about 0.4 percent of the American population engages in active-duty military service at any given time.

    In Britain, more Muslims join ISIS than join the British army.

    Jihadists, by contrast, have low life expectancies, second-rate gear, low salaries, and often have to break domestic laws and journey across battlefields to join terrorist insurgencies, but still they join. In Britain, for example, more Muslims join ISIS than join the British army .

    Simply put, America’s leaders actively deceive the American people about the sheer scale of Muslim hatred and commitment to jihad. Rather than tell us the truth, the Obama administration and the media aristocracy constantly lecture Americans about discrimination, apparently believing that only their scolding keeps the great redneck masses at bay.

    Telling us the truth won’t send Americans on an anti-Muslim killing spree. Instead, it will make us no more radical than Egypt’s president, who briefly made headlines earlier this year after calling for a “revolution” in Islam and decrying faith traditions that he admitted had been “sacralized over the centuries .” Telling the truth can demonstrate the scale of the problem and at least begin the process of convincing the American people that there is no quick fix, that the defense of the nation will require courage and resolve over the long term.

    Islam has a problem. It is Muslims’ responsibility to reform their own faith. It is America’s responsibility to defend itself and its citizens. Neither goal is advanced by telling convenient, politically correct lies. After 14 years of war, can we finally tell the truth?

    Greeting!!
    My friends and i are also planning a christmas party similar to what Ms. Dianne is planning. Pls let me know what charitabke org doesn t get much attention from others.
    thank you

    dianne and anonymous, from what area are you? there are popular ones like Damas de Filipinas (erap s favorite) and Asilo and hospicio..i don t know though about the others. missionaries of charity is also popular (as it s one of the most searched here) but it s really depressing.

    Hi! We re planning to go to the nearest orphanage here in Intramuros Manila. My friend wants to celebrate her birthday there. If we go there without notice to the orphanage they will entertain us? or we need to call them before we go?

    Hi, can you help me find an orphanage within Quezon City. I would like to share some foods with the children. Thanks

    Hi..is there an orphanage located at san fernando la union? Thanks

    Dear,
    i would like to ask how can i get the profile of the foundation listed here to review to support. Also, if i wanted to visit the nearby foundation to makati do i have to set an appointment or i can walk in? appreciate your help. Thanks godbless.

    Which orphanage is near to Hyatt city of dream at Paranaque?
