    Although I am very young, I've had the rather good fortune to be quite successful (although I work hard) and currently have a well paid job working alternately in the UK and Canada. I also have other freelance jobs that I do that do well.

    Since I'm not one to lead a too posh life (Don't have Porsches etc, I have a simple Toyota Auris), I'd like to make some donations to good causes and help people in need.

    What causes and charities would be good options to donate too?
    Whilst donating money to a charity is a fantastic thing to do, giving up your time to volunteer is even more generous and more personally gratifying than giving a donation!

    Mary's meals is a good charity, they feed thousands of children all over Africa and Eastern Europe every day, in fact they can feed one child in Malawi for one year on about £6.50! I like them as a charity as something like 97% of money donated goes straight to their causes whilst the other amount prints their newsletter and pays for the upkeep of certain things such as the website. It's amazing how many children you could end up feeding, and remember it's for a whole year!

    Well done for being so thoughtful and generous with your money. Choose wisely!

    The Alzheimer's Society- 800,00 people in the UK suffer from Dementia. There will be over 1 million people with Dementia by 2021. Alzheimer's has a reputation as being a disease that only effects the elderly which isn't true. 17,000 younger people in the UK suffer from Dementia. Not to mention the 670,000 life's which are affected as non professional carers for Dementia patients (friends and family).

    Dementia affects so many people and will affect so many people in the future. It causes so much pain and suffering for not only the patient but also their families. I know this as an individual who's life has been devastated by this illness.

    'It seems that when you have cancer you are a brave battler against the disease, but when you have Alzheimer's you are an old fart. That's how people see you. It makes you feel quite alone' Terry Pratchett

    The english language society, to learn how to spell to. BURN.

    Just kidding. If this is legit, and not a troll, then homelessness charities are good. Take a second to think how much it would suck balls being out on the street (where it's not your own fault, i.e. abuse, etc). People walk past homeless all the time and don't even make eye contact, it must knock your confidence and self worth something awful. There's a newish sort of homeless charity I found online that fund centres and stuff, I won't say their name just incase it's not what you're after. Just do your research, moneybags.

    Failing that, I could do with some cash.
