A World Without Racism is Generous
Donating To People In Need
Helping and supporting families in need is one of the best things a person can do. Especially during this past year with the pandemic causing many hardships for families across the United States and around the world. If a family is in a position to donate they should consider doing so. Doing simple things such as donating clothing that doesn’t fit anymore or donating canned goods can go a long way with helping a family in need.
Donating to a local Children’s hospital is also a great option if you are looking for a place to donate. Donations go towards improving care and improving lives. Monetary donations also fund research for childhood diseases which can end up saving a child’s life. Hospitals such as Seattle Children’s Hospital have several different funds that people can donate to that would aid in Covid-19. These funds include ones for mental health, patient emergency assistance, Covid-19 research, and more. The pandemic has been tough on many families so donating to a children’s hospital can improve and even help save lives in the near future.
The Equal Justice Initiative is also a great non-profit organization to donate to. Their goal is to end mass incarceration in the US. They also want to challenge racial and economic injustice and protect human rights. They provide legal representation for people who may have been wrongly convicted, and prisoners who can’t afford their own legal representation. This is a great organization to donate to because of their noble goals and the positive impact they can have on the affected people’s lives.
Donating to charities can help teach children about the importance of generosity and giving back. This can help create a great value system for them and even lead them to donate in the future by themselves. According to research done by the Charities Aid Foundation, 96% of people felt a moral obligation to help others if they are able to do so. This is a great mindset to have and one that can be passed along to others. According to the Charities Aid Foundation donating to charities can also help encourage friends and family to do the same. Families can even donate together to make a joint, bigger donation that may be difficult to achieve if done individually.
Donating to a charity that shares the same beliefs and goals as you is one of the best things a person can do. Knowing that your donation can help make a difference is a great feeling that everybody who is able should experience in their lives. Donating toys to children during Christmas, donating canned goods to your local food bank, or making monetary donations are all great ways to give back to the community.
