giving back (survey)

I've been thinking a lot about charity work, giving back to the community and improving the world around us. I really want to get your thoughts about community and world needs and see what you view as important. Please take a moment to ponder the following questions. Then copy/paste them along with your answers in the comment section for this post. Thanks and lets make the world a little bit brighter today!

What do you feel are the most important global societal/environmental issues in the world today?

What charities/organizations do you know of that are addressing the above issue(s)?

What are the needs in your local community? (please include some description of the town or type-of area you are referencing, i.e. urban, suburban, specific town name, state, etc.)

What charities/organizations are addressing these local issues?

What would you like to see improve in your local community?

What type of volunteer/donating/causes are you involved in?

If money/time wasn't a factor, what cause would you get involved?

What are the everyday things you do to try and make the world a better place?

Thanks for taking the time to answer these questions for me. Love you all!

We live about 10 minutes outside of Philadelphia. It's a pretty wealthy area which is kind of funny because my husband and I don't live that way. We're very sensible and down to earth. I see so much waste in our area. Over priced stores that people throw their money at. Big cars that guzzle gas. My husband and I try to go through our house from time to time and donate to the Salvation Army. I upcycle a lot of things and patronize the consignment stores. If I wasn't working and money was no object, I'd volunteer doing art and reading to children at the Children's Hospital. I'd organize private trips to supply clean water to families battling famine. I'd volunteer at a community garden and share good food with the neighborhood for free.
