i agree with TM that the frustration is that there are too many worthy causes, and one often doesn't know which to support.
its kinda obvious my personal causes on the island are SAGA, & the need for sensible, reasonable & sustainable development. i think at this point i've voiced why quite enuf.
my husband chooses to support Holy Cross School. he visits every trip.
i suppose each one who chooses a cause picks one that is dear to them for one reason or another. some are tangible, some idealistic.
so, there's my answer. it isn't very exciting, but at least i replied.
