Today I spent the afternoon in the city by myself, I like going there alone just wandering about, having lunch and sipping a nice coffee in the big courtyards that Perth offers. I was completely oblivious to everything around me, when a man came and sat beside me. He then started talking about The Wilderness Society. TWS is a national group that helps with the conservation of Australia's wildlife and landscape.
We get those people a lot around campus, and due to past money constraints, I could never take the risk of joining one in case I could not keep to the donations. But, today was something different, I realised $20 a month is nothing, and that by a small donation can make a big difference.
I signed up, and am looking forward to going to meetings and getting involved in this society. I know next to nothing of the major issues apart from those on local news and by word, I am looking forward to learning.
Have any of you donated or joined a cause? I'm sure there a lot of societies like this one around the world, all fighting for the same reason. I would love to hear of them, and what they get up to.
