Well- the only charities that I have worked for for children just involved me dressing up as Alice in Wonderland and trying to sell Sci-Fi antiques...

Bravo!!
*tips hat to clarky*

before being a professor, i spent ten years working exclusively with needy children. after hearing tale upon tale upon tale of abuse and neglect and worse, i really had to get out of it.

the only charity i do for kids these days is being a financial sponsor for a (now) 16 year old boy training to be a Buddhist monk in northern India ( <a href="http://www.drepung.org/" target="_blank">linky</a> ). lately i've been toying with the notion of asking if i can have another to sponsor. i suppose i could contribute to something more local, but i feel like i've already paid those dues and more.

incidentally, the latest research i've read about charity in america says that it is the middle class who give the greatest part of their time/wealth to charity. now isn't that interesting?

yeah, it's a pretty cool thing to do, keith :)

I've only bought some postcards for kids' charities, they donate the profits from selloing the cards to children who need treatment, but we don't have such interesting charities here :P

:blink: that must have hurt! but at least it's for a good cause.
i'm terribly tame in comparison, bought a new red nose the other day and on wednesday i'm going to xpressionfm's fundraiser night for comic relief/red nose day (my show won't be on because of this... i think we're doing an "outside broadcast" of the night instead, so if you're interested you can listen to that instead). :)
i dont have any pix of myself modelling a red nose so heres one of doctor who instead.

If someone challanged me to do John O' Graots -Lands end for charity I'd do it.
