Daily Post – My Chosen Cause

Standard

Today’s daily post can be found here

If your day to day responsibilities were taken care of and you could throw yourself completely behind a cause, what would it be?

This is a thought provoker – because it has made me realise that the charities I give to and the causes I support are not necessarily the ones that I would get behind if I had a chance to be involved.

Many years ago I belonged to a Youth Theatre, we were responsible for organising a charity event (being ambitious 15 – 18 year olds) we tried to get U2 involved and in fairness to them the response we got if it we had asked over a year in advance they would have been involved. In the end it was a much more local event with bands from the town and our sketches and fundraising in between.

We researched homelessness by taking action, working with homeless people in a day centre and talking to homeless about their experiences of being on the streets and the back stories are wide and varied. It was an experience that I will not forget. I think if I had time to throw myself into a cause I would choose to help the homeless.

  1. Can you PLEASE explain to me how you were able to connect your post to the Daily Prompt!?!?! I wrote up my cause and have no idea how to connect it or make these ridiculous pingback things everyone keeps talking about. WordPress’ explanation on how to do them is of no help so I am reaching out to you kind sir and/or madame. Can you help me?

    • Sure, you need to leave a link to the Daily Post page (making sure it is on the relevant post) and they automatically give a pingback – it isn’t one that is open to comments, hopes that helps.
