When asked if my cup is half-full or half-empty my only response is that I am thankful I have a cup. (Sam Lefkowitz)

It’s better to help then it is to have. Having can only last so long, but helping could last forever.
(Howard Polley)    Social Intelligence

Knowing that your actions are making a difference is essential. Knowing how to split your time
when it comes to Curing a Disease versus just Treating the Disease is essential.

 

 

                                                     

There is literally 100's of important choices and decisions that we make everyday.
Changes and Improvements will only come from being aware of the choices that we need to make everyday and not from the money we give to charities or receive from charities. We have to face it, Money will never solve our problems, it only delays our problems temporally. Being aware of what choices we need to make everyday is the only sure way, and the only sustainable way, that we will ever have lasting changes and Improvements. And passing on this wisdom to people and future generations is the only way that we will ever free ourselves from making these same mistakes over and over again. A Charity that's Only asking for Money is not a Charity. You cannot just give money and expect to make a difference. A charity must have proven methods that clearly communicates the ways that people can improve their situation without relying on money or hand outs. That is why valuable knowledge and information (or improved education) must be combined with any kind of Aid that a person or persons receives. If I give you money I must also give you the necessary knowledge and information (or tools) you need so that you can help improve your situation yourself as well as understand what money represents and how money can be used correctly to maximize it's value.
So a Charity should mostly be about giving knowledge and Information and finding everyway possible to help people understand this knowledge and Information so that people can take action, make changes and make the right choices. Raising awareness is more important then raising money as long as the awareness can be translated into Action.

"Give a man a fish and he eats for a day teach a man to fish and he can feed himself for life?"

So people knew the value of knowledge hundreds of years ago. but for some reason the 21st century has forgotten it, or, it has been stolen or kept from us by ignorant criminals in power.

Philanthropy should never have to depend on Volunteering. And the word Volunteer should never be used when describing what someone needs to do or what society needs to do. There is a huge difference between 'Work' and 'Life'. Doing what's right and what's good should never need a reason or a word to describe it. Helping should just be a natural reaction that a human has when a human interacts with the world.

Altruism (wiki)    Gift (wiki)     Generosity (wiki)      Morals and Ethical Behavior


You can tell how incompetent and corrupt your local government is by how many charities your town has. Why do ignorant politicians always ask "what's important to you?" If you don't know what your job is then why did you take it? Oh yes, the money. You made promises and you lied, all for money. Then you have the audacity to ask us "what can I do for you". Listen moron, the first thing you should do is quit being an idiot and resign from your position and then give this job to someone who is more competent. You're sick and you're making everyone else sick, so please step out of the way, some of us are trying to make improvements, and not for the money or for selfish reasons, but for the benefit of all.
