either one is good
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 8/22/08 - 10:33:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
Environmental usually includes animals, so I'll go with that one.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 8/22/08 - 10:45:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
An Environmental one is usually indirectly a Humanitarian one, too. Unless it's something dumb like saving those useless motherf*cking pandas. F*ck those guys.

Definitely humanitarian. I would way rather help feed starving children or orphans than save some trees.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 8/22/08 - 7:54:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd rather give my money to an enviromental organisation/cause.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 8/22/08 - 7:57:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
I see humanitarian causes alot more, so i give 2 them more.

I agree wholeheartedly.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 8/25/08 - 9:36:47 AM EST (GMT-5)
Both are good but I'd probably go with humanitarian first
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 8/27/08 - 5:57:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
Almost all of the money I donate goes to humanitarian causes.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 8/27/08 - 11:07:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
Neither. I'll save it so that I can buy Nikes made in a 3rd world country by children for $3 a month with 19 hr work days and also get a Ferrari Testarossa that gets 6 mi to the gallon.

there are plenty of tree huggers plus the gov't that spend billions of our dollars to worry about the environment. I had to junk my truck (even though it had rebuilt engine and new catalytic convertor) because of stupid California smog laws. I dont spend a minute thinking about the environment - someone else will do it.

Agreed.

However I tend to not give money to anything. Seeing as it is hard to really know how much of that money goes to the cause and not in the pockets of someone.

At the moment, I don't give money because I don't have any. When I am more able to contribute, it will probably be to both, but preferentially to humanitarian causes. I see these as indirectly environmental causes. You can't ask people to make sacrifices or change their social norms for the environment if they are hungry and their children are starving. They simply won't listen. Once they are relatively stable, have food, medical care, and education, then they will be in a better position to respond to environmental issues.

Since when are animals valued more than humans?

I feel like people are focusing so much on stopping global warming that we're forgetting how to treat people with respect. Of course, I think helping the environment is extremely important. But helping our neighbors is first.
12 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 6/12/09 - 2:09:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
neither because when you donate to those places only about 5 cents from each dollar goes to the cause..if that.

i agree with this idea, though.

to change the world we have to change ourselves.

I don't know the exact numbers but that's a sad fact.
On the other hand if you don't donate to those places not even five cents will go to the cause

i'm quite even of the two but this comment makes me wonder how the orphans would do if there were no trees

any evidence?

look it up online, or read the fine print on the commercials that come up with the starving kids in Afria. the teeny tiny print at the bottem explains it all.

When I was in the Navy, we used to have this huge charity thing every year (the Combined Federal Campaign). They would give us a book of charities (every type you could possibly think of) and at the bottom of each, it listed how much went to administrative costs. Some had huge admin fees (up to 40%), but the vast majority spent less than 10% on that.
