I’m turning older next month and a few people have asked what I might be interested in receiving as a present. There isn’t much that I want and either don’t already have or could reasonably expect as a gift, so I’m asking people to donate to any of the organisations below.
Humanitarian aid, environmental protection, and conservation:
- Amnesty International or Amnesty International Australia
- UNHCR: The UN Refugee Agency or UNICEF
- Oxfam or Oxfam Australia
- World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) or WFF Australia
Free software and information:
- Free Software Foundation
- Electronic Frontier Foundation or Electronic Frontiers Australia
- Wikimedia Foundation
- Creative Commons
If you really can’t resist the urge to get me something else, I have a brief list of things after the jump.
In general, I don’t really want to acquire any more “stuff” that I may not use; I would prefer things like movie tickets or restuarant vouchers.
That said, there are a few things that I’m after. I know that second-hand items are sometimes taboo as gifts, but I don’t really care.
- Easel (I’m after a wooden, h-frame, studio easel)
- Any large white canvas
- “Syrup” by Max Barry
- “Company” by Max Barry
- “The End of Faith” by Sam Harris
- Any interesting fiction, manga, or graphic novel
Games I’ll probably buy at some point:
- Dragon Quest VIII: The Journey of the Cursed King (Playstation 2)
- Tomb Raider: Legends (XBOX, Playstation 2)
- Fahrenheit: The Indigo Prophecy (XBOX, Playstation 2)
- Burnout: Revenge (XBOX, Playstation 2)
- Warcraft 3 (PC)
- Half-life 2 (PC)
Other games I would like to play (in no particular order):
- F.E.A.R. (PC)
- Destroy all Humans (XBOX, Playstation 2)
- Robotech: Invasion (XBOX, Playstation 2)
- Darkwatch (XBOX, Playstation 2)
- Scrapland (XBOX, Playstation 2)
- Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (Playstation 2)
- Peter Jackson’s King Kong (XBOX, Playstation 2, Gamecube)
- Geist (Gamecube)
- Rub Rabbits (Nintendo DS)
- The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (Gameboy Advance)
- Yoshi’s Island: Super Mario Advance 3 (Gameboy Advance)
