I have decided that for all of 2009, I will personally match 10% of all membership funds that we take in to be donated to causes fighting world hunger
. So for every $100 full membership for a year, I will pay $10 to organizations helping impoverished and hungry people. If you take a year's professional membership I'll give $20 and so on.
Even the poorest of us in the western world control a lot of wealth compared to the majority of people in other areas. We often forget that there is a huge problem
with starvation and misery in the world around us. It is my hope to raise awareness this year and help make a difference.
I will also set up an account if there is interest to which people can freely add to DarkPoetry's overall contribution. I will research the most efficient organizations fighting hunger and donate the lump sum in the name of DarkPoetry.com's members at the end of the year. Suggestions and comments are welcome.
