Charity begins at home. (27)

Jan 11, 2021 11:04 AM CST Charity begins at home.
An old adage and one that many question in this age of donating to the needy.

We read much that people are angry at their countries donating vast amounts of money to "Third World " countries.

What is your take on this, and are you a charitable person in general.? What have you done that would be considered charitable without the need to part with money?

Love that idea Dino. Giving pleasure and gaining funds.

So much people could do to help others like walking someone's dog ,taking in a hot meal etc. Spread and share the love I say.hug

I don't give anything to cheer unhappy donkeys up. But I help out with local charities.

I organise events to showcase the work or local artists and artisans and musicians ... in turn it helps the community businesses from the visitors ...

dancing cool

I have made regular monthly payments to a charity for children in need when I worked full time as a teacher in the UK

I sometimes help food banks do the food collecting ...

I do healing therapies in exchange for donations (money or produce) instead of having a high fee ...

Not if you live in a Mansion it doesn't. Home is the last place it starts. It's the whim of Mackenzie Bezos.

And then on the other hand liberals and immigrants give foreigners a bad reputation. By encouraging the world's worst to settle here and become parking attendants and the ideologically correct proportion of dark skin on tv. They're gnawing away at that desire to feed the hungry and the suffering of the world when of course we should we feed the hungry and the suffering of the world.

The Donkey Sanctuary in Devon is inundated with finances from people, but the one near me depends on it's fund raising and helping hands and they do a great job in rescuing neglected animals. Donkeys are only unhappy due to human neglect.handshake

We all have too much of something and sharing is caring Dino. The state of the homeless in the U.K. is unbelievable at the moment.

Putting a smile on another's face is always creditable.grin

I don't like to see any animal unhappy, but if it comes to hungry children or unhappy donkeys I choose to help the children and any of my less fortunate human beings. You only have so much time to give.
I can't help everyonedunno

All people have a conscience though surely. Whether it pricks them or not is entirely another matter.dunno

I can't help everyone
Donkeys are not normally unhappy ,but I get your drift. There are many ways you can support others without putting your hand in your pocket.

I don't give money, but I have done a lot of voluntary work with rescued horses, dogs, translation work, healing...all for good causes


And I donate clothes, books, CDs and objects I don't need to charity shops, to raise money.

We can all support others without the need to donate money. Such a wealth of help is out there for others to benefit from if we gave of our time . Thanks for sharing Dan.hug

I have been giving to a ‘reputable charity’ each month, but here in Canada the tax agency monitors so called ‘charities’ because some of them are just institutionalized scams taking more than 50 cents of each donated dollar for ‘administration’.

Unfortunately true Lonely which is why I like it that people on here are using their talents to help and support others without the finance.

I never give homeless people in the street money, I usually ask them if they want a hot drink and a sandwich and buy that ,or if shopping buy a few useful goodies and share the love in that way.handshake

This prevents a lot of people from giving money to organised charity, the one I refer to in my previous reply has an expensive ad on television which is no more than emotional blackmail. This turns a lot of people off, the organised charities,

Like others on here, I help where I can, and get the money to the people it was meant for.
