What I Want to Do:

So long and thanks for all the fish..

i graduated in automotive engineering and spent over 7 years as an engineer (mostly in vehicle safety development and most recently in pedestrian safety and engineering sales) - a job i was apparently quite good at.  but since december 2005 all that is in the past.  i wish to spend my time, my working life, on something more worthwile for this planet and now i am brave enough to give up my existing career and try something i've been dreaming of for a long time. i think my existing skills/experience in sales/marketing could be put to good use in a charity as a campaign coordinator and/or fundraiser.  but before i start looking for that kind of position i want to have a break and do something a bit worthwhile at the same time.  hence i am off travelling and volunteering for various organisations until my savings run out and it's time to get paid employment again.
in that time, i can't really afford to donate so much to my favourite charities, so i have set up this website to enable others to donate for me ;o)
please feel welcome to add your own contribution!!! :o)

About Me what is this life, if full of care
we have no time to stop and stare

no time to stand beneath the boughs
and stare as long as sheep or cows

no time to see, when woods we pass
where squirrels hide their nuts in grass

no time to see, in broad daylight
streams of stars, like skies at night

no time to turn at Beauty's glance
and watch her feet, how they can dance

no time to wait 'til her mouth can
enrich that smile her eyes began

a poor life this, if full of care
we have no time to stop and stare

(Poem by WH Davies 1871-1949)
