Here are some links to some groups which might be of interest to our wee earthling visitors.
There are many places where people can donate money for programs that are supposed to help the land, animals and other people, but trying to solve a social or environmental problem with money is non sensical. It usually means other even bigger troubles are caused else where by burdening the well meaning giver or some body else along the money chains.
Volunteering can be a more direct way for folks to help-out, hands-on. This way you know where your energy is going, you get to be a part of something you believe is helpful, you might meet some mates or have some incredible experiences. Still, organized groups have rules, conventions and leaders which might hold us back. So, *free your imagination*
The descriptions are either based on portions from their webites, or our understanding of their main mission focus and how they go about achieving it. If you know of any groups who should be included here wee would absolutely love to hear about it. Just give a shout out! *wee are listening!*
