It is popularly said that everyone is equal in the world. But as popularly as it is said, this saying hardly stands true owing to the fact that the world is filled with social and status differences. There are so many people who still register with the poverty line and so many others who even earn lesser than the poverty line! And there are some who are far ahead from the word ‘poverty’.
Likewise, there is nothing wrong with being rich or poor. However, if the rich have the resources to help the poor and the under privileged, that can never hurt either of the parties! Likewise, here are some reasons stating why one should donate to a charity
1. Resolve the problem of poverty
You will agree that there are so many people who come below the poverty line! Likewise, several charities support these people who do not have the access to even meet the basic requirements of life. If you contribute to charities which support such people, you are pretty much making a contribution to help people fight the grave social injustice of poverty!
Imagine! your contribution to such charities can actually help the poor persons have an access to health care and clean water. They will be able to fight off life threatening diseases. Your contribution can be among one of many which will actually work together to provide medical facilities to these people when they have the need for it!
2. Small drops make a mighty ocean
This saying stands true especially when you want to collectively help a cause! As a single contributor, you might not have the resource to single handedly donate an amount which can completely resolve a single issue!
Likewise, if everyone thinks like that, no one would be making a contribution to the charity at all! In situations such as this, if every person makes donations of small amounts, the resource pool can actually become a big one! Therefore, small contributions from person to person can actually make a huge difference!
Instead of thinking that your amount is small, it is in fact better to keep making your donations whenever you have the time and the facility for it!
3. Understand the world
Last but not the least, another reason why it is important to contribute to charity is to understand and feel the ways of the world! By donating your money or by contributing your efforts, you will be able to relate to these people who do not have the luxuries of life. This way, you can be aware of the way the world works and how your single contribution can multiply an change the inequalities and the differences that are so prevalent in our world!
You have to understand that a charity means to help the people who are needy. It cannot be forced upon any individual as there is no law to help others! The feeling has to come from within the individual!
