I know an insufferable twat, let’s call her Farrah, who never met a left-wing idea she didn’t endorse. Somewhere in between the endless Facebook posts documenting the trials and tribulations of her upper-middle-class life are little diatribes paying lip service to some stupid cause. I use the term lip service because that’s all it is. Actually doing something to advance these issues would interfere with her commitment to her favorite cause, herself.

Here’s the deal, there is only one type of charity worth supporting, and it’s one that helps kids. It could be Make-A-Wish, St. Jude’s or even the scholarship fund of a university. There are thousands of choices out there.

Groups devoted to gay rights, women’s rights, immigrant rights, etc., aren’t charities; they’re advocacy groups. They are meant to push the agenda and beliefs of members of that group. These aren’t selfless martyrs; they’re rational individuals pursuing their own self interests.

If you want to make a difference, focus on the one group who really can’t care for themselves, kids.
