Where do you want to go today?

Don’t close this window just yet – this post has nothing to do with Microsoft. On the contrary even…

For a few years now I am nursing the idea of working for a humanitarian or environmental organization. I haven’t yet researched the subject, but just try to imagine how good or bad that would be for me personally. So far, I can imagine all the good things, except maybe for the salary.

Lately I was trying to figure out what organization would I choose to work for if I had the free choice. Would it be Greenpeace? Green cross? Red Cross? UNHCR? DHA? There are so many choices that it’s really hard to pick one. All of them seem to have good intentions and all of them have a list of good deeds under their belts.

If you were the one to choose, which organization would you choose and why?

In case you know only Greenpeace, here are a few lists for you:

Do not fight the nature. You will lose.

My father-in-law has five daughters. No kidding. And all he ever wanted was one son. He tried the first time – no luck. A daughter. He considered giving up, but his wife convinced him to try again. And so he did. Nope. Daughter again. He thought about quiting, but his wife convinced him to try one more time. Who knows? He tried. Daughter. Again.

He took a break for a few years to think things over. And he thought hard. As a result, he divorced his wife. And married another woman. Who already had a son from previous marriage.

Tricking the nature he tried again. And he got it back hard. His wife gave birth to twins. Two girls that is.

Five daughters later, I don’t think he will try again.
