Can't Do Everything

This isn't a "how-do-you-do-it-all?" post. I'm thinking about all the causes, all the evils, that come into our view. There are hundreds of things that need attention. There are vile, wrong, laws to fight (CPSIA, FOCA, and the like); there are attitudes that need to be changed, there are good things to support. It seems that every time I'm on the computer (and for a while, at the mailbox) there's some other cause to consider. So many good goals, and no one can work for all of them.
Right now I'm mainly concerned with fighting the CPSIA, because it's so urgent and could be so devastating. I don't know where to go from there.
With our charitable donations, my Knight and I have largely devoted ourselves to Compassion and to Csehy Summer School of Music (www.csehy.com). That's a post in itself!
What are your pet causes and charities?

By "cause" is adoption. Read here a post I wrote about it here:

I really hope that I will still be able to buy used clothes - that's pretty much all I can afford!

I had not heard of the CPSIA thing until reading your post. Thanks for making me aware of this.

Our favorite cause is the HOPE clinic in Bogata Columbia.

They also have a hospital in Cambodia, where some of our friends worked as doctors and nurses for several years.
