for me i never trusted these charity stuff i always give donation straight to the needy but good thing bro u r intention is good god bless u
I understand mate, it's not about donating online. It's the thought. Whether you gave a dollar to a beggar on the streets, or even $50 online, it's still donating in my opinion and you deserve a pat on the back for that. I don't usually donate a lot but whenever I get the chance, I will.
Donating is a wonderful thing. It shows the good of the world because, in all honestly, it's not easy to donate hard earned money. Donating shows you have self-control and a heart, and it shows that you care for more than just yourself.
And not saying that people who don't donate don't have those qualities - it's just they don't express them.
Kudos for donating. Now when you feel comfortable doing so, try making it a regular thing, like a once a month donation. Makes you feel really good
Im actually thinking up of setting a monthly recurring donation scheme with Unicef. Just gotta do that when I have more time later this week.
But yeah, most people don't donate their hard earned money simply because they worked "hard" for it - but its a great thing to do!
Excellent work mate. However, the 'big' charities do seem to dominate the smaller local ones, which is a shame - as their work is equally valid.
for me whatever i make here or at my my job i give between 7 to 10 % from it and im really blessed and happy in my life what i noticed whenever i give money to the needy god reward me with more money anyway that s a good thing to hear IMers thinkin abt helping people Leith tnx for this thread
Whenever I see the urge to do something good or see extreme need I fly to the place in need of a hand, I did several times and never needed like saying when, where or why. Donating is a personal thing and should stay confined within the limits of everybody's ethics. Putting money into supposedly goodwill funds whose statements are basically just a small blurb on the interwebz always makes me think of the good ol' testimonials on many of the squeeze pages advertising im products... Call me old way, but I wanna see where it all goes and tend to trust only when I have proof no matter how reputable an organization is supposed to be... We all know it's not the first time shit happens.. I know an individual can't be everywhere and can't do everything but having a first-hand experience of giving a hand locally is a MUCH better way to relate to the problems and, imo, a much more enlightening way to help others. Maybe it should be made mandatory for all youngsters out there whose only desires are so futile and useless. Furthermore in my experience the majority of times -not implying it's specifically OP's case- donating to long-distance causes is just a shortcut to pat yourself on the back (and/or show off) and not much more. Of course YMMV.
I've never donated any money to charities, as I'm kinda skeptical about them, however I used to help my neighbour (she was in her 60s) out with food if I saw her down at the store, or gave her a ride home, etc. That isn't donating, but her and her grandson were very grateful, which I found pretty sweet.
