Part of my personal spiritual practice is that once a month, I tithe an amount of my income towards a cause or charity that actively helps those that confront the realities of death and dying. The charities that I select range anywhere from donating to a hospice to efforts that prevent needless deaths.
September’s charity is Direct Relief International, an organization which aims to improve the health and aid relief efforts. I donated directly to the Emergency Response center, which aims to not only help and aid those who have been hit with natural disasters, but also to only send what they request for, clearing up distribution lines of unneeded items and greatly improving the quality of the emergency response.
This has been making the rounds on various journals that I follow, so I figured I’d start it here for the month of October. I’ll be covering one a day (or so) until they are done, as sort of a way of explaining and expounding on my beliefs.
