I have to be honest I'm not really sure, I'm not really clued up on stuff like this.

 

One thing that I do however cherish is my childhood, it wasn't perfect but it is something I hold dear. And something I think effects an individual for decades to come. So I'm going for War Child or Unicef. I feel sorry for kids who's life has been proper fucked up.

 

This.

 

If anything, it's best to invest in new generations (=children) to solve our crap, I guess. Investing in anything else without creating a better future for people will result in even more crap despite current investments (in nature/animals/...).

 

We fucked up, so it's up to future generations to actually save the planet.

 

imooooo

I vote for UNICEF.  Wildlife / The Environment knows how to take care of itself (even if that means it does so after WE go extinct).  Kids need the most help.

Hmm I'm not sure if doctors (without borders) need any more money, I thought the point was to do that work for free. To bad we didn't get Cancer research up on this biatch.

Please don't call me out for my comment about DWB, it's just that I have this impression of some highfalutin Mr Universe doctor wasting the money on $50 Macadamia nuts on his first class flight to Sierra Leone to help some poor savage person remove a sliver or something.

It's probably not like that at all though.

i'd rather the money goes to the Rephlex account, maybe they'll do something with it.  I'd rather Rephlex spend it on pints than some adversity-exploiting charity CEO benefiting from it.

 

unless of course Rephlex needs to show losses on paper or something.

Rephlex obviously doesn't need the money cause they don't even put their releases up for download for people that pay for their music

 Nope, they're probably just not as naive about the world as your average ivan ooze. I lold how after those two WWF exposes were posted, one exposing WWF as a sham that works to give palm oil plantations an environmental halo, then immediately following these posts, two members posted in support of funding WWF with the charity money. I hope that they were just being ironic, i really do.

It's hard to pick a just cause especially when there's also so many so called first world countries where people are in dire need for help and or education.

You really need to stop perpetuating this myth that Rephlex themselves were selling the record - I think you're giving them a lot more credit than they deserve thinking that they planned this all out and anticipated someone would start a Kickstarter to raise money for the record, resulting in an almost 10-fold increase in the amount they would get.

if the majority of these global charity organizations are as tainted as they're seemingly being illustrated, then shouldn't we, as a community, either create our own small-scale nfp charity to avoid the pitfalls of these other groups or, at the very least donate to an individual rather than, for lack of a better word, a company?

 

 

edit: for the record, this is coming from a place of ignorance on my part. i'm simply asking "why not?"

Unfortunately that would require more work than the entire Kickstarter campaign was to begin with - I'm sure none of the candidate charities are perfect in how their funds are used, but every little bit helps - even if a little bit is all that actually does help.
