    wish i could give more to charity

    does anyone feel bad for not giving enough, sometimes none, to charities? i feel bad bec i haven't been making any money lately, not even enough to pay my rent+car+food each month so i've had to be stingy. i mean i know we all want to give more but is it wrong when we don't do ANYTHING to help people out like i'm doing right now?

    Its really good to learn that still there are some people in this world who thinks a lot for people who need our support. I am an entrepreneur and I have shared some of my money to needy. I am still doing it. Recently I have come to know that there are online firms which are doing good job in this field.

    These are more transparent than many other charity fundraising options I have ever come across. You too can try out one of them and you'll never feel the bad for not giving enough.

    Charitable donations

    There are many ways that you can give to charity without it affecting your pocket. I, for one, will frequently go through my closet and weed out the clothing items that I no longer wear and that are in decent condition and take them to a goodwill or brothers and sisters bin. If you itemize your taxes then it is best to actually take them into the place that you are donating to and receive a receipt that you can use for a tax deduction. Charitable giving comes in many forms and does not necessarily need to break your bank so to speak. Another way that you can give without needing to invest money is your time. Volunteering for different organizations or events is a way to meet new people and to help out in charitable ways. Being self aware that you would like to do more for others shows that you have a good heart. Lots of luck

    I recommended to all that spread awareness to the world about all the worst cases and its impact and follow the positive initial of any kind of charities which is helpful to all. Give your precious time in respect to help for all who need and donate in real manner which can be helpful for those.

    Dont feel bad

    Dont feel bad if you cant give any money. you need to take care of the bare necessities first then move on and help others. We need to understand that if we all come together and do a little then that will make a large dent in the problems we have today. just imagine if every family gave a few dollars a week this would be at least 20-30 million every week that is donated to help the homeless find shelter and food. we would have it knocked out!

    Honestly, I find more satisfaction from giving to those I actually know. It's nice to send some money away for the greater good, but giving to those around you is the most rewarding. Think about some friends and family in need and ask if they need help. OFFER to give them some help, or just do it. They'll greatly appreciate it.

    I also like to spend my some time at a care center for the elderly, I feel a nice time just meeting people and listening their opinions. But unfortunately they all have sad and Painful story. I give some charity to deserve peoples.

    I'd love to one day have enough money and not be in debt so I can donate too. I do give what I can when I can. I try to give away books I've read, clothing that's still in good condition, and some household stuff as I get new things as gifts and what not.

    Donate what you can. If you have time then give time, if you can drive then drive, if you can donate your time or talents another way then do that. If it helps donate more or gives you an excuse be sure to keep receipts and track mileage/etc because you will be able to write it off on your taxes (up to the yearly limit).

    I want to give you a reference from all the sacred books which were reveled by God almighty that if you are suffering loss in your business than do charity .It means you are doing business with god and god never disappoints a man and returns back more than a person.
