i agree with you, but that cause problem and be a bad idea as it could mean less people wanting to go travelling and thats how locals get money is by travellers spending especially with more people wanting to travel to remote places.

Personally, I contribute to two causes--Multiple Sclerosis (because one of my sisters has this disease) and to the local food bank (Second Harvest Food Bank). Both of these (as well as many other charities) do an excellent job--and in this case, I know the money will either go to help the poor locally--or to curing a terrible disease that affects a very close loved one.

Like you, I know contributing to a good cause is needed--but I also put aside some money to do some traveling--because I also need a break occasionally in order to do my job well--and to make life worth living.

Speaking of good causes--$3 out of every ticket to tomorrow night's San Francisco Giants game is going to help out those who homes were burned down in San Bruno (a suburb of San Francisco) last Thursday And, of course, people can donate directly. PG&E (the local electric company) has already donated $100 million dollars to the cause--of course, this is because their incompetence is the most likely cause of the accident that caused the explosion and resulting fire. For information on this catastrophe, look at the following.

Best go out there and help them personally. A massive percentage of monies raised for good causes, never gets to the people that need it.
