Charity and chocolate

[In Australia] households spent $573 billion last year and we gave less than one-500th of that to organisations helping the world’s poorest people. Despite the public response early last year to help victims of the tsunami we still spent about twice as much on chocolate than on overseas aid last year.

One thought on “Charity and chocolate

  1. Thanks David (and maria) for the reminder. But I must be honest, we here in Sierra Leone love our cup of tea with the occasional chocolate:)
    Would be great to welcome you here sometime.
    By the way of you know of a doctor who would like to come and help in the Out Patient for Children for 6 – 12 months, please let us know.
    Love to the family
    Rene and Marianne
