Do you support any particular charities or causes?

If yes...Why that particular charity or cause?

What do you do for them?

If no...Which charity or cause would you consider supporting? Why?

Very worthy causes.

Animal welfare, conservation and green issues are close to my heart and always have been. When I can I support the RSPCA, RSPB and donate ad hoc to other such charities, I also do daily clicks online where sponsors also donate for these and many other charities including children's charities and cancer charities. I have also been a member of local zoos when I could afford it which contributes to their conservation work. I always give some money to Comic Relief and participate in any community fundraising for Comic Relief and Children in Need, I have from the beginning. I would like to get more into supporting an autism charity like the Autism Society when I find a job and have more money to spare.

LLS is very close to me. Last year I got involved with Team in Training and was training and raising money for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through TNT. I didn't get to complete my race but raised a little over $1500 that I will use for a race in 2012 after I have the baby. I have had many family members affected by cancer and Leukemia is a big one for kids.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie
