Your will - charitable donations? (3 replies)

I have been thinking a lot about this lately, and wondered whether we would all like to share which charities we are supporting with our will?

I think it is great to share this kind of positivity, as it shows that we really are making a huge difference.

I am donating to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and a couple of local animal charities!

What about you? Which charities are close to your heart? Or even - have you decided that you will leave it to something more unusual?

I have been a supporter of World Vision for many years now. Their work focuses mainly on alleviating poverty in poor countries. I strongly believe that living in the West is a blessing in itself, as the opportunities to make something of your life are endless, while people living in poor countries do not have anything near those chances, unless they are born rich, which the majority aren't or are well connected, which again the majority are not. Bribery then becomes the only realistic means of moving up the ladder, whereas in the West, anyone with ambition and drive can make something of their life. I am for ever grateful to this country for the opportunities it has given me to make something of my life.

Julez, do you mind me asking why you have decided to support the CF Trust? Are you affected by it in some way, or do you just want to support them? Personally I am undecided. I have been doing a fair amount of research on it lately, but still can't make up my mind. I am hoping that I have quite a while to decide, though!!

I don't mind you asking at all! Well a friend of mine has a child with CF and is always trying to fundraise for the charity. So I have tried to help her, and have seen the fantastic work that they have done in the past. It is the closest I have got to having a family member with a serious illness, so I thought it would be nice to make this donation.
