Giving Tuesday

With Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday now behind us, it is time to focus on charity. Today is Giving Tuesday; a day set aside for charitable causes. It’s a day on which, under the guise of POM, I donate to, or champion causes that are important to me. First to mind is Movember; an organization that is making a difference in men’s health issues like prostate & testicular cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention.

Movember is bringing awareness to the issues that guys never seem to want to talk about – either amongst ourselves or, worse, with our doctors. This year consider a donation to Movember using this link. Visit our co-founders Movember page to learn more.

There are other charities that I wanted to mention but, this morning, I stumbled upon an article that just drained me. At a time when I didn’t expect the depravity of humankind sink any lower, I read an article in the Sun regarding the sex trafficking of an orangutan named Pony.

Stolen from her mother at a young age, and chained to a wall this creature was trained to perform acts alongside human prostitutes in Borneo. Deplorable. Half a day has passed since I read the article, and even now, words fail me. I’m having a difficult time expressing the level of disappointment I have with those involved in this.

Join me, let one of your good deeds this year be a donation to an Orangutan rescue foundation. I plan to donate to  Orangutan Foundation International – it’s US-based and a 501c charity. There’s also Orangutans-SOS out of the UK.
