Gifts — Wheel Tales of Willow City

Gifts 00Gifts 01Gifts 02Gifts 03Gifts 04Gifts 05Gifts 06Gifts 07Gifts 08Gifts 09Gifts 10Gifts 11Gifts 12Shortly before an election is called and then after during the election campaign it seems the members of the party in power are travelling around announcing funds for one project or another and tax benefits for one sector or another. I have noticed that the money only seems to be pouring in for those demographics for whom that party is seeking votes from.

Everyone one else seems to be ignored. I know that they seek everyone’s votes and travel to everywhere that voters are, but everything just seems aimed at getting the necessary votes to win. Don’t things have to be run during an election as well? Doesn’t everyone deserve attention for the needs of the public?

Coffee — Wheel Tales of Willow City

Be creative and see what you can raise for your favourite organization. Businesses with a break room or lunch room might encourage employees to have coffee in the break room or bring a lunch from home instead of going out. If they donate what they would have paid, the money will add up, even if they only do it once or twice a week.

Be creative!

Do It Yourself Lemonade — Wheel Tales of Willow City

I published “Do it Yourself Lemonade” over a year ago here (Oct 21 2013), but thought I would republish it for new readers…

Newer followers of the strip might not have seen this cartoon from over a year ago, so I’m reposting it.

I hope you enjoy these and would really appreciate your spreading the word. My stories are spread by word-of-mouth so this is the way that others might also see them.

This strip was published as “Wheel Tales of We’ll Make Cents” previously but we thought it would be better to publish more independently — hence the change in venue and name.

We were originally published in “We’ll Make Cents“. They are an organization that helps support a number of not-for-profit causes which might get overlooked. Why not pop over and give them a look.

Donations are actually hard to come by for Charities and other not-for-profit organizations. Consider what you might be able to donate. It might be a good time to clean that closet, attic, cellar, shed, or garage! You might have someone else’s next treasured possession. Perhaps you don’t live near Auckland and We’ll Make Cents, but there are people in need everywhere!

“The Jar of Change” fund is a fund-raiser being done by “We’ll Make Cents” to raise money to purchase a “Standing Frame” for a not-for-profit health concern in Auckland NZ. They are encouraging people to put a jar on their night stand and each night put the “50¢” pieces that are in their pockets at the end of the day in there. The collected change would be brought to “We’ll Make Cents” or directly to the health concern. The change collected needn’t be just 50¢ pieces, but any spare change. The idea is that while it might be difficult to budget much for charity, a little here and there adds up.
