Donating to Charity
A disclaimer here, which is, I hope obvious, but should be clarified. I'm not criticising the work of these charities, or the people that work for them, they're doing good work (I assume) and they're good people (I assume).
So, if you haven't already, why not think about making a small commitment to give your time, your voice, or even your money to back a good cause too?
Your 20th year should be an exciting one; a time when you stand on your own two feet after university and start to build your career while enjoying the freedom of being young and carefree. But the sad truth is that today, 1 in 6 young people in the UK are struggling to find work, education or training.
So instead of spending our time hating these organisations we should be using it to try and help them. Grow, develop and move forward in to modern world. Because one day, at some point in your life you may just need that very charity that you once tweeted abuse to from something you read online; because you didn't understand what they did.

Women make up 50 percent of the world's population, yet they only hold one percent of the economic capital, which means many are the main victims of global poverty. Despite some fantastic advances in recent years, Malawi is just one country where women are poorest.
Just like putting that red cross on the ballot paper; you have a choice. We live in a democratic country where you are free and able to vote for whichever party you feel will benefit your life. Do the same with charity; donate to the ones you want to, not the ones that tell you that you should.
The horrific scenes in Nepal and further afield following last weekend's huge earthquake have been hard to avoid. I'm sure most people will have had the conversation that goes something like "oh, isn't it horrible, if only there was something we could do to help". And then forgotten about it. But there is something you can do.
