The world is so beyond inverted it is criminal. If you really look around this is obvious.
This inversion has created extreme wealth in the face of extreme poverty. We have working families who depend on food banks, and our towns and city streets are becoming full with people in such dire straits they have no choice other then to live on the streets.
We are a extremely wealthy nation, however the majority of that wealth is kept for the 1 Percent, the elite. The other 99% of us are left with no other choice than to turn to ‘charity’ in our hour of need. As a nation, we are brilliant at charity, but absolutely rubbish at changing the status quo and ensuring charity is never needed. We simply accept it, like its our vocational responsibility to raise money, even though we are one of the highest taxed nations and should never be in need of charity.
I am donating a percentage of my income from all commissions, image and print sales to help with food banks and the homeless. For me these are 2 of the biggest issues we are facing as a nation.
I do not trust charities (note I said ‘charities’ not charity workers) Having examined in great details how donations are broken down and where the majority of the money donated really goes, I prefer ensure any money I may donate is actually received by the people for which it is intended. So the money and bought food will be donated locally.
We are all only a few months without pay away from being on the streets, that how the system is set up. That person in the doorway outside the department store could be you in 2 months if you are laid off, ill or the company goes bust.
Think about that, and perhaps top walking by…
