      me! because I dont have time to play poker these days, because of finishing that f*** school, so I'm unemployed for now^^

      seriously: it doesnt matter imo. Charity is MOSTLY (no matter what who says) about feeling good for helping someone, so it's always partially egoistic. It's not nice reason, but no one cares - as long as you help someone, it's good... My advice: choose one charity (or something similar) in your neighbourhood first - it's always good to have an idea what your donation are used for. I'm not saying helping some international organization is not the way to go, but if you have no experience and, simply said, no clue about the topic, going locally shouldnt be bad at all ;)

      Thank You for advices.

      At this moment I think children with cancer and without money for medicine are the worst thing in the world..

      I think You are wrong. When You can take money from poker (when it is hobby) You don't care about donating from withdraws.
      More egoistic people/position is don't give anyone anything than people who are giving their money.

      Thank You erptech for the links.

      I hope You will not be in the side of where people need help.
      There isn't point to discuss about it.

      I think we should understand that there is a slight difference between "donation" and "charity". Donation helps those who are unfortunate in life in indirect way. Like you donate X $ to "fight with cancer organization" and pay for researchers or equipment that will help to find a cure. Charity is giving money, goods or time to help the people who really need.

      I watched a documentary about Nike and some other companies that you donate to them then they pay your donation to poor people in exchange for their labor which I find it disgusting (of course employing people is a good thing but...). I'm not saying all organizations do such things but they exist and even opal99 said it's how you feel when you give things and I agree with him, I think seeing that your action lead to some positive effect always make us feel spiritually comfortable. I think starting locally is really a better idea than going globally. If I was Bill Gates then things would be different...

      As long as you have money to donate, you should go and help kids with health problems - cancer,aids, etc... Any cent that reaches to them keeps up their hope of living :)
