#donate a goat
Is it ethical to give a goat to Africa?
Every year I give the gift of a goat to Africa, on the basis that a goat provides poor Africans with milk, cheese, grass-grazing skills, and company during those long, TV-less nights in the jungle and it also helps them to continue living sustainable, machine-free lives. Yet now Animal Aid tells us it is wrong to give animals to Africans at Christmas time, because these beasts add to rather than diminish poverty , and what s more where impoverished people cannot afford to feed and care for their animals, those animals endure extreme suffering and die . Aaah! I don t want my paid-for goat to suffer at the hands of some witless African! Ethan, what should I do? Keep giving the goats or rein them in?
Ah yes, the goat dilemma. The question of What To Give To Africans is such a source of enormous, sleepless torment for we ethical souls. Do we let them know it s Christmas , as Bob Geldof suggests, or will that only offend against their possibly Muslim, paganistic or cannibalistic cultural traditions? Do we give them old, cast-off clothes, even if that means having innocent black boys and girls running around the jungle in garments made from worm-torturing silk or stitched together by enslaved Indonesian four-year-olds high on Coca Cola in a factory in the back-end of nowhere?
Must-reads from the past week
Do we send them condoms, even though these foul objects are made by hacking at the hearts of rubber trees and never biodegrade or do we not send them condoms and risk Africa becoming even more wildly overpopulated by more mouths to feed and more bottoms to adorn in unethically-constructed grass skirts?
Just the other night, over the most divine organic turnip flan you will ever taste ( 5.99 from Waitrose: rush out and get one NOW), me, Sheba, Zac and Margo had a blazing row about the goat dilemma. Margo said it is unethical in the extreme to send goats to Africa, since goats are not mere chattel to be passed from one human being to another. Zac disagreed and said it s better to send goats to Africa than to have them imprisoned without trial in children s petting zoos in places like Bermondsey where children deranged by turkey twizzlers poke them in the eye or insert fireworks in their anuses .
My partner Sheba (the unbeliever) said the most unbelievably stupid thing (come on Sheba, you know you did): that we should send money to Africa! As Zac, Margo and I pointed out to her in a rare moment of agreement on that heated night most of that money would only be stolen by African tyrants and spent on limousines or aeroplanes or factories or Afro hair products and other unspeakable Crimes Against Gaia.
The debate went on ALL night. Sometimes I wonder if Africans know how much emotional torture people like me endure in order to work out how we might help them. Voices were raised; organic, freight ship-imported red wine from Portugal was spilt in anger; napkins made from undyed recycled sackcloth were thrown down in fury; and at the end of the night, Margo, by this stage in tears, brought her own goat (who lives an entirely free-range existence in her backyard and only trims the weeds around her allotment if and when he wants to) into the dining space and yelled: Would you want to send such a beautiful creature to RWANDA? We all had to agree that, no, such a peaceable and innocent beast as Lynas should never be shipped to such a volatile and angry place as Rwanda, or Sierra Leone, or Zimbabwe, or even Kenya, which used to be quite respectable and touristy but which earlier this year also succumbed to that innate human instinct to burn things down and chop things off.
After listening to all the evidence, and all the arguments, I have come to the conclusion, Peaches, that it is NOT ethical to send goats to Africa. Don t get me wrong. I have the utmost respect for the well-meaning, well-to-do inhabitants of respectable London and the Home Counties who every year dig deep in order to fund the provision of goats, ducks, llamas, donkeys and other livestock to poor African families. They instinctively recognise that the authenticity and austerity of rural African life, the glorious muddiness of living hand-to-mouth in a mudhut on the outskirts of Freetown a lifestyle that I look upon with deep green envy from my polluted, car-packed, shop-filled town in Kent MUST be preserved. And how better to preserve it than to furnish Africans with the simplest things in life, such as plimsolls (with rubber-free soles), lead-free pencils so that they can learn how to write, solar panels that allow them to heat water, and goats, which are such a superb alternative to lawnmowers and to the industrialisation of milk production and milk provision, such as we have instituted in animalphobic Britain.
However, we must also ask: is this in the best interests of the goat? And I m afraid the answer is usually no . Sheba and I once sponsored a girl in Liberia called Chloe. Well, we called he Chloe. Her birth name Abeiuwa Bombata Obakhavbaye wouldn t fit on the eco-friendly wristbands that we had made to remind ourselves and our friends of our selfless love and respect for Africa. We sent Chloe 5 a month, which helped to sustain both her and her donkey. It kept Chloe in school and kept her donkey in rude health.
However, when we paid Chloe a surprise visit in 2003 with the ultimate aim of adopting her and bringing her to Britain so that she might educate our own two boys about how to live in tune with nature we discovered that she had saved up our monthly donations to buy a tiny bungalow, with a gas heater (. ), and was making extra money by charging local kids a penny to ride on her donkey. We were disgusted, disturbed, traumatised. We immediately withdrew our monthly donation, and the latest I heard is that Chloe is selling shoelaces on roadsides in Monrovia and making tuppence a week. So I hope she has learned an important lesson: do NOT abuse donkeys, and more fundamentally do NOT abuse the kindness of strangers.
Peaches, it is too risky to entrust animals to a continent where the RSPCA has very little clout and where PETA has tried but failed to bring about a cultural shift in attitudes to wildlife and pet-life. So instead of giving a goat to Africa, I suggest you sign up with Oxfam and give the gift of dung to Africa, as that wonderful charity describes it. Yes, for the price of a Starbucks coffee (if you are inclined to drink from that evil capitalist establishment), you can send a bucket of manure to a poor African family, which allows them to fertilise enough crops to keep them alive for exactly one year. And if you ve already bought a goat, fear not just collect together its shit, put it in a well-sealed box, and post it to Sierra Leone for the attention of Poor Farmers In Need of Assistance . Africans will certainly know it s Christmas when they receive a box of juicy, life-giving animal faeces.

#advantages of blood donation
Why Donating Blood Is Good For Your Health
It’s time to roll up your sleeve and save a life — including yours.
Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood, with a total of 44,000 blood donations needed every day, reports the American Red Cross. One whole blood donation. which takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour, can come to the rescue of as many as three patients.
Harold Mendenhall, an 84-year-old lifetime blood donor from South Florida, donated his 100th gallon of blood, The Palm Beach Post reported. He started giving blood on July 7, 1977 when his wife, Frankie, was diagnosed with breast cancer. After she died, going to the blood bank was a way Mendenhall could deal with the grief of losing his wife and later his two sons. At least, he could save those who needed a blood transfusion.
Mendenhall, strong and healthy, donates 6 gallons of blood a year by platelets. In a platelet donation, a machine withdrawals the blood, filters out the platelets, and returns the rest of the blood to the donor, according to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. This donation procedure takes 70 to 90 minutes and can be done once every seven days, allowing for the donor to give blood every few weeks instead of the eight weeks of waiting required for a non-platelet donation. Whole blood donors can also donate platelets 72 hours after a whole blood donation, and vice versa.
Blood donors must be 17 years old in most states, with some states lowering the limit to 16 years old with parental consent. Donors ages 16 to 18 are also subject to additional height and weight restrictions, says the New York Blood Center. A single individual who donates whole blood starting at 17 years old every 56 days until they reach 76 will have donated 48 gallons of blood, potentially saving more than 1,000 lives, says the American Red Cross.
While the health benefits of recipients who receive blood transfusions are clear, altruistic blood donors too, can reap the benefits.
Preserves Cardiovascular Health
Blood viscosity is known to be a unifying factor for the risk of cardiovascular disease, says the Harvard Medical School Family Health Guide. How thick and sticky your blood is and how much friction your blood creates through the blood vessels can determine how much damage is done to the cells lining your arteries. You can reduce your blood viscosity by donating blood on a regular basis, which eliminates the iron that may possibly oxidize in your blood. An increase in oxidative stress can be damaging to your cardiovascular system.
Blood donation reduces the risk of heart attacks and strokes, too. In a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), researchers found that participants ages 43 to 61 had fewer heart attacks and strokes when they donated blood every six months. In a study published by the American Journal of Epidemiology. researchers found in a sample size of 2,682 men in Finland, those who donated blood a minimum of once a year had an 88 percent lower risk of heart attacks than those who did not donate.
The removal of oxidative iron from the body through blood donations means less iron oxidation and reduced cardiovascular diseases.
Reduces The Risk of Cancer
The reduction of iron stores and iron in the body while giving blood can reduce the risk of cancer. Iron has been thought of to increase free-radical damage in the body and has been linked to an increased risk of cancer and aging, says a study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Researchers followed 1,200 people split into groups of two over the course of 4 ½ years. One group reduced their iron stores by blood donations twice a year, whereas the other group did not make any changes. The results of the study showed that the group of blood donors had lower iron levels, and a lower risk of cancer and mortality.
The Miller-Keystone Blood Center says that the consistency of blood donations is associated with lower risks of cancers including liver, lung, colon, and throat cancers due to the reduction in oxidative stress when iron is released from the bloodstream.
People burn approximately 650 calories per donation of one pint of blood, according to the University of California, San Diego. A donor who regularly donates blood can lose a significant amount of weight, but it should not be thought of as a weight loss plan by any means. To donate blood the American Red Cross requires donors to weigh at least 110 pounds and maintain healthy iron levels in the body.
Provides A Free Blood Analysis
Upon donation, donors are tested for syphilis, HIV, hepatitis, and other diseases. Testing indicates whether or not you are eligible to donate based on what is found in your bloodstream, says the American Red Cross. The organization also notes that a sample of your blood may be used now or in the future for additional tests and other medical research with your consent.

Frequently Asked Questions
Click any question below for more information
How do I claim the tax deduction for my timeshare donation to charity?
Once the ownership has been transferred through DonateMyTimeshare.org, you will receive a receipt verifying your donation. Please note this receipt will not include the value of your timeshare property. The IRS states on Form 8283 that you may claim fair market value of the timeshare on the date you donated it. If you are claiming the fair market value of your donation at greater than $500 you will need to fill out Form 8283 to submit with your tax return; if you are claiming the fair market value of your timeshare donation at greater than $5,000, you will also need a written appraisal that meets IRS guidelines. We urge anyone who plans on claiming a tax deduction through donating timeshare to charity to thoroughly research all legal and tax-related ramifications. Consult your CPA, lawyer, or financial advisor for more information.
What is the fair market value of my timeshare property?
The fair market value of a timeshare charity donation is NOT the same as what the developer or resort is charging for the same week or ownership. Similar to a used car, the market value of a timeshare ownership typically depreciates over time. The fair market value of your timeshare donation should be assessed by a professional if you wish to claim a tax deduction over $5,000.
I still owe money on my timeshare, can I donate my timeshare to charity?
Unfortunately, you can only donate a timeshare once the mortgage is paid in full. If you still owe a large amount on your property, your best bet is to try to sell your timeshare to recoup as much money as possible, and then make a separate donation to Give Back Charities or an equally deserving charity. If you feel you are able to pay off your existing mortgage, please call DonateMyTimeshare.org at 855-781-1080 to learn your options.
Why should I work with SellMyTimeshareNOW.com and DonateMyTimeshare.org?
Many “timeshare relief” companies claim to be the most knowledgeable when it comes to donating a timeshare to charity. But if any relief or donation company claims you will receive compensation when you donate timeshare OR asks you to submit a payment through an untraceable source (money packs, wire transfers), step back and do your research. There are many timeshare donation scams out there, which is why working with the professionals at DonateMyTimeshare.org is often the wisest choice.
Our donation specialists make the process simple and hassle-free. Get started now.
