It seems Prince William also supports the Lance Armstrong Foundation as his is wearing a "Livestrong Band" For those who don't know-that's the yellow band, or "braclet" William is wearing and is a "fundraiser" used by the Lance Armstrong Foundation. The bands are very popular here in the US, I myself wear one daily in support of the organization.

I know what you mean. Often times people tend to be very negative to organizations (or religions) that they don't understand. They often get false information from the press (we know how bad they can be) or rumors that lurk about & don't take the time to really find out about an organization.

I feel the same way about Narconon (who use Scientology discoveries) who has helped so many battle their dug & alcohol addictions. I suppose there are lots of people who see Scientology as bad or at least controversial but they don't bother to really find out about the teachings. I don't see how they can be bad as I've seen their teachings firsthand from friends who are members (and outstanding members of their community too). I'm happy that I have freinds from all diff religions.

I always try to make it a point of finding out about my friends religious belifs & really learning something. I feel that by doing so it promotes a better understanding of cultures,people & promotes peace & understanding in the world. Tollerance.

In holland the freemasons are a dulll group of middle class men, as far as I know, similar to those members of the rotary and the lions club

all 3 of the organisations do lots for charity
It's not total countries that believe the Masons (and their appendant organizations) evil, more religions and close minded people of many countries... and unfortuanetly trying to "reason" or share the organization with those sorts of people only make it worse... My family has been involved in Masonry for generations, when DeMolay was started the men in my family joined the popular youth group and then moved into Masonry when they were of age. It's amazing the amount of charity these groups do, and yet people continue to protest and speak out against them because they have rituals that they refuse to share with people who are not members, however many of the groups ceremonies etc are open to the public and very, very beautiful!

Anyway-here State side the Mason's are a group of men who go unnoticed in the news, for the most part anyway... Up until the hype of Davinci Code and Angels and Demons and the release of "National Treasure" (A movie here in the states-that I highly reccomend!) I don't think there had been much mention of the Mason's in the news... All three of the above mentioned "press" generated some more interest, and the impressions of Masonry are "good" rather then "evil" in the US press or interests... (for the most part at least!)

Sorry I know that's kind of off topic-sometimes its nice to just get your piece out...ya know...and now back to discussing charities...

I also support the Shelter for Battered and Abused Women of Colorado

There are so many I would love to support!

I suppose my top charities would be charities relating to breast cancer, and strokes.

Mine would be the:

Red Cross/ Red Crescent
Doctors Without Borders
CanTeen (for teenagers/ children with cancer)
Starlight Foundation (like the Make a Wish Foundation)

* But if I had to pick one, it would be the Red Cross. I think they're always reliable, well respected and very dependable. I have been a little disappointed by some international agencies who I thought should have reacted faster to the tsunami disaster....

well i would like royals to support World Vision. While we are on this topic let me tell you a true story which happened last year .

A famous woman in Perth Australia called Rose Hancock-Porteous lives in the hugest mansion in Perth and is stinking rich. (she was a former maid who married a powerful mining magnate) she was known as a gold digger. Anyway, she held a garage sale and said all the profits would go to charity- the Princess Margaret Hospital fund. Once
she got the money she never gave it to charity, she admitted to spending the money to CLEAN HER CHANDELIERS!!!! and get new chandeleirs as well! Can you believe that!

Anyway, she was accused of killing her husband but the case was dismissed or something and now shes moving to Melbourne. She is demolishing the beautiful mansion istead of selling it.
