Everyone at some point or the other think of doing some charity and giving donations to the poor and the needy. However the strange thing is that these acts of charities increase during special occasions and festivals. There are people who want to mark their birthday by donating some amount to a charitable organization and then boasting about it to friends. It is to be remembered that charity cannot work properly with this kind of mentality. A more proactive step should be taken while contributing to charities.
There are many governments and political leaders who have started taking active interest in making contributions to charitable organizations. They are providing large sums of money to the various organizations actively working on making life better for the poor and the needy. However the donations received from governments, government organizations and political leaders are not enough to cater to the increasing needs and requirements. Private citizens should come forward to eliminate the deficiency.
You as a private citizen can take the responsibility of providing certain amount of your salary to the charities every month. You can also play a proactive and significant role in educating other individuals to come up for the cause and help in whatever way is suitable for them. Along with private citizens, it is also the duty of the large corporate to do their bit in improving the living conditions of the poor.
The world is filled up with billionaires as well as people living below the poverty line. If the billionaires donate a part of immense wealth, it can open new vistas for those who are in need of them. Hence, governments, political leaders, corporate and individual should come together and work in tandem to reduce poverty from the world. Contributing towards the well-being of the needy should be a regular affair rather than for only a few special days and occasions.
