The last 30 years has seen some incredible work done in the battle against poverty, hunger, animal welfare, homelessness and diseases that are rife in the World. In spite of this gargantuan human effort to rid the World of disease and affliction, there is still a lot more to do. Many of the people who require help are in living difficult lives through absolutely no fault of their own and it is important that we come together as a World community and help those who are less fortunate than ourselves. If you are in any doubt as to why you should help then here are just some of the reasons that you should get involved.
Your Faith Tells You Too
If you like many are a person of faith then it is your duty to God to help those in need. Even if you cannot directly help yourself, something as small as writing a cheque and donating money to charitable causes would be a positive step in helping the World. For example, the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) has a ministry which dedicates itself solely on helping others, from those who are afflicted with disease or disadvantaged to widows and to those facing natural disasters. The ministry relies solely on the donations from kind hearted people and they spend the money on helping those in need. If you can’t make time to help yourself then you can donate cash to help others make the difference.
What if it Were You
You perhaps won the geographical lottery but it is important to think, what if you hadn’t? What if you were born into poverty, into a world where all you knew was hunger and disease, wouldn’t you want to know that there was someone else in the World who was trying to help you to overcome your situation?
Selfishness is not one of the best reasons to give your time or money to charity, but any help that they can get is help nonetheless. Giving time and money to help others in need is an incredibly rewarding feeling, the idea that you are giving something back to the World from your successes can make you feel like a true helper and a conscientious member of the human race. Whilst selflessness is a better reason than selfishness, it is important that you do your bit for charity whatever your reasoning.
If Everyone Helped…
If every single person on the planet helped out with the charity and the humanitarian work that is required to fix the problems that we have in the World, then these problems would disappear very quickly. Why not become the start, be the next individual who decides that they will use their fortune for good, once you do it, you can inspire others around you to do the same and start a sort of Butterfly effect of kind acts and charitable support. There are already great people in this World doing amazing things, why not become the next one.
