Since time immemorial, there are people who are more generous than others. Giving back to the poor is something natural for them. Their selfless attributes are probably what shaped modern charity and gift giving in the world today. Not everyone has the same opportunities in life and those who have been blessed more than others feel grateful for their blessings and also learned to share their blessings to those in need.
Charity work is a bit different nowadays. The new twist in giving back to the poor has to do with more advanced technology that is now available to us. Even ordinary citizens can easily set up GoFundMe pages for various causes and people who are more blessed than others are quick to pitch in and donate whatever amount they can. However, there are a few who takes advantage of the generosity of others and steals a portion of the money that should have been given to the poor.
It is both surprising and depressing to think that there are people who can do these things. Charity should be about sharing your blessings without expecting anything in return but scammers found their way to milk money from other people’s generosity.
Life would be so much easier if we not only think about ourselves but the welfare of others. Life in itself is not fair – where others are born in luxury while the majority in poverty.
Like any other important thing in life, eternal vigilance is what everyone needs to make sure that we are supporting the right causes. Wanting to help and extending help through charities can only make a difference in this world if our donations reach those who are in need and bring about the change and improvement in their lives we all want to see.
Scammers are just on the sidelines waiting to lure people who only want to help but happen to be too vulnerable and gullible for their own good. We can only change the world by changing the way we see and do things. Remember that charity always begins at home, so help yourself first before you can help others.
