Have you done your good deed for Easter this year? Okay, I know that’s not a real tradition or anything, but I’m trying to create some guilt here. Please, please consider sponsoring the Snook and I in the Walk Against Want. It takes place this Sunday and we’re going to attempt the big 15K version. The event raises money for “Oxfam Community Aid Abroad”, which will go towards helping people in developing countries and indigenous people in Australia. Any little bit helps, and a donation of $5 US would go pretty far here. If you’d like to help, just drop me an e-mail. I promise it won’t be a big hassle or anything. Okay, guilt over. You may resume your regularly scheduled bloggage.

  1. oh kris you are so low! you know we catholics fold at even the slightest whiff of guilt! sign this sucker up for a donation. πŸ˜‰

  2. Hooray! Thanks… I just don’t want us to send back our little sponsorship books and have them be totally empty.

  3. I won’t be supporting Oxfam anymore since I heard some rumours about them. I’ll donate some money to another charity instead πŸ˜‰

  4. Unfortunately a large proportion of Oxfam’s donated income is wasted and spent on internal beaurocracy (possibly as much as 30%). The politics of which are too complicated to dissect here, although to be fair, a reasonable assumption of one cause would be that they became victims of their own success at a time when there were plenty of people around who were able and looking to exploit the fact. While this is not a grand enough reason in itself to stop donating to Oxfam as they continue to do immensely valuable work, it is certainly a good idea to spread one’s charity pledges to more than one reputable organisation.

    I for one have pledged my entire Easter weekend to obscene displays of excessive drinking and tomfoolery seeing as once again I am the Easter bunny for about the fourth time in 29 YEARS!

    …just putting that out there.
    March 30th OK?
