VIEWS FROM THE STREET

What's a worthy cause to put your money toward?

Drummer, 33
I'd donate money to poor countries, like countries in Africa. Other than that, I'd like to help the rain forest. If I see a donation box at a store, I'll donate money to the environment.

Businessman, 40
I'd give to SOS Kinderdorf based in Germany. They help the world's poorest children who lost their parents in tsunami or natural disasters. They teach kids reading and writing.

Jide Obadina
Sales associate, 25
I'd give to Amnesty International because they take up causes that no one else deals with. There'd be a lot of forgotten people who would be screwed if it weren't for them.

Manager, 48
I'd give to poor people who have no houses -- anywhere in the world: Europe, Asia, Africa. Sometimes I feel like I could become like that. It's not just another person's situation.

I'd give to homeless people around Shinjuku or Shibuya because they're so close to my life so I can see them every day. Africa has many more people, but it doesn't seem so real to me.
