In recent years, I have felt a greater calling to be involved and contribute to charitable organizations. I have been quite fortunate in my life. Despite any personal setbacks I have experienced in my own life, they do not compare to the pain and suffering I see in the world.
Many people say that what they do don’t make a difference or doesn’t make a big enough difference. Personally, I think every little bit helps and I get peace of mind that I have tried to do my part by making a small contribution. I am also trying to do my part by leading by example.
I don’t want to make a big speech or anything but I do want to let people know that I am doing my small part. And if that can influence or motivate someone, then I will have helped the cause. Donations are very easy. And it can be as small as $5 or $10. Are you willing to give up one lunch to help someone? To me, it is an easy “YES”.
I will be compiling a list of charitable organizations that I personally support and endorse. As of this writing, Red Cross and The Smile Train are at the top of the list. I am quite confident I will be finding more organizations I will want to help financially support.
