Kevin M. asked us how to "make a specific donation to a family I came across in poverty in Thailand." For Kevin and anyone else wanting to help others, you'll find a list of organizations Aid and Charity page.
Your Own Charity Page
In the midst of our latest research project we came across a website we'd like to share with you.
Everyday Hero allows you to build your own personal fundraising page to support your favourite charity or cause. We haven't tried it ourselves yet, but it's worth a look. Let us know if it lives up to your expectations.

A big round of applause goes to the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank for this award-winning initiative to create positive change in our communities.
New CARE Link
Laura D. from CARE Australia let us know they have a new web address and we've updated our Aid and Charity page with it. Led by former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser, CARE Australia joined CARE international in 1987.
