I love my animal welfair support efforts I really do and I work within what I can actually do, however I do have a small problem with welfair organisations.

I can't help but feel very guilty about being unable to donate to any organisations even though I have a VERY good reason why I can't do this(the insane amount of medical bills that I need to pay and the money I put into medicines/tests/doctos just to keep alive).

There is always a pressure to donate to the organisation in order to 'make a real difference' and often it feels like a guilt trip as well as an almost insult, it's as if what I am doing actually means nothing because I can't put in any money. I find this very frustating and quite demeaning, its as if what I do do goes unknowticed and that the organisation is really only out for my money.

I do understand that because they're nonprofit they relie on donations so that they can operate but the pushy way in which it is done is(in my oppion) wrong and whenever I am apporached by people asking me to sponser a child or donate for an animal(which is the one I'm more likely to spend what little I might have on) I tell them that I can bearly sponser myself, which normally gets me rolled eyes and a stupid look. I hope that soon charitys will be less in your face about donations and concider those who while living in a devloped contrny are bearly getting though a week.
