Charity

Charity is the act of giving help be it in monetary or any other form voluntarily to the less-privileged. A charity could be in the form of a person, an organization, institution, or group of people. Charity is an act of benevolence as well as kindness. Organizations or institutions that does charity work are generally non-profit ones. Charity organisations or institutions request and accept gifts and donations from both individual and corporate donors. A registered charity is one approved by either the state or federal government to do charity work.

So long as people live on the globe, there will definitely be people helping to supply needs to the less-privileged. There always exists a set of people (the privileged) having more than the other set (the less-privileged), and in most cases the less-privileged are in such a condition by no fault of theirs. Luck may run against them or disaster may strike. In such condition, their livelihood will depend on the charity and generosity of the privileged.

Derivable Benefits of Charity

As giving to others is part of human life, institutions were established to serve as intermediary between (or from) the privileged and (or to) the less-privileged. such institutions are called “charities”. Some charities stand out very specific as to the group of people they are out to serve. For instance, focusing exclusively on the supply of vaccines to kids at birth preventing them against deadly illnesses may be the purpose of a particular charity home.

Yearly, there are several natural disasters that leave people to terrible situations, the worst consequence of which is loss of life. An earthquake for instance, will produce several millions of dollars in infrastructural damage; increase in hunger rate as well as malnutrition among the populace is the product of flood when it attacks thousands of crops in an expanse of farm land. To these problems and more of such are various charities established to help affected victims out. It is pertinent to remember at this point that though natural disasters are unpredictable, they are inevitable. For this reason and this alone, please don’t wait for disaster to erupt before you start to donate. Charity organisations or institutions that have goods readily available to help the less-privileged will respond immediately when the circumstances warrant it.

Finally, there are several local/small charities serving people surrounding you. They are not less-important as the bigger ones, just that they don’t rake in much donations as the later. One example of such small but valuable local charity is the “food bank”. Though it does not have enough resources to supply the needs of a whole country victimised by a natural disaster, still helps to get the needed food victims can’t afford.
