Life at № 42 by E.M. Coutinho
The Max Mello association for animal’s plea got me thinking. Exchange rates, life, well being, Brazil’s £130 per month minimum wage. How a pretty boxed bottle of Cristal champagne is £189.50 (and it takes 4 people about 25 minutes for that experience to have come and gone)
Or how dinner out for two at a mid-ranged restaurant will cost at least £50. Now imagine if everyone who could afford to, skipped just one little luxury and put that money to better use. And what if we could do that once a week, for a month a year? Or even just once a year?
Oxfam can get a pair of chickens to a family in need for £20, or a goat-couple for £50. Okay put the pitchforks down and let’s not have the Ethics of Buying Animals for Africans over a Bottle of Bolla, Saturday Night Debate. You skipped your luxury, you get to choose your cause. A very uncontroversial one is a dog shelter like the one mentioned above. Go on, just skip one little luxury this week!
