Yesterday I joined amnesty international, coincidentally 7 days after friend Lenina became a member (maybe I would not have been that susceptible to their message if she hadn’t). It’s only going to cost me a few cents a day, and once I am in a more comfortable financial situation, I am going to increase the amount to donate in a year. They got me with their initiative to rehabilitate child soldiers – but there is not a single cause in their portfolio that I wouldn’t subscribe to.
Still in Germany, I supported an animal rights organization for a while whose board members have now received a six years sentence for the misappropriation (?) of donations. Jeez! I guess I can rule out such a scenario in the case of ai. I am glad to be once again supporting a charity organization – one of the few things one can do as a person who was luckily born in our posh Western civilization.
