A lot of us have a feeling that we’re better off with charity, which means we spend less time in the workforce, which leads to lower levels of stress, and we’re able to do things that make us happier.
But what if you’ve been doing something for years and you’re still having issues?
What if you don’t have enough money for rent or groceries?
You may not be able to find a job at all, and you may find yourself thinking, “I’m not doing enough good for my community.”
Those are all legitimate concerns.
But there are a lot of reasons people are choosing to give to charities, and I wanted to try to share some of the big ones.1.
The work is worthwhile and it helps people.
When you volunteer at a charity, you’re working with people that care about the world and the world is trying to care about you.
If you’re able get the job done, you’ll get paid, and your contributions will help to build a foundation for future generations.
You’ll learn something about the human condition and you’ll learn that a lot more people don’t care about charity the same way.2.
You get to be involved with people you care about.
When we volunteer at charities, we are not just sitting around doing nothing, we’re part of a community of like-minded people who want to do something good for the world.
We get to meet other like-minded people who are all passionate about their cause and want to help.
There are people in every profession who want you to do well.
If the charity is really good at what it does, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be involved.3.
You can get paid for your work.
If your work is meaningful and you have something meaningful to offer, there are opportunities for you to make money.
You may be paid for it if you are part of the team that has to pick up the slack.
You could get paid if you’re part or lead the entire project, or if you help to design the site.
If a team of volunteers manages to put together a website, there will be a revenue stream.
If we’re lucky, we might even get a commission for helping out.4.
You’re making a difference.
Many charities focus on one cause at a time, but there are other areas that we can work on.
If our work is going well, there might be opportunities for us to work on projects for other charities, or help with a new fundraising initiative.
If not, we can still help out in other ways.5.
Your donation will help someone else.
Your generosity and the work you do helps others and that’s a good thing.
When your donation goes to a cause, it will help those people in need.
For example, if we raise $1,000 for a shelter for homeless people, we’ll be able have the money donated to the organization go to a charity that helps the homeless, which will be the best way to show our support.
But if we donate $5,000 to help pay for a homeless youth center in our community, we won’t be able afford to pay for any of the shelter costs for the youth center, and it will give them a chance to do more in their community.
That is good for all of us.6.
Your contributions are valuable.
Giving to charities can be rewarding.
Your actions and donations give back to the people in your community, which is why so many of us choose to give.
You’ve chosen to work in a field that has a great impact on the world, so you’re making an impact that’s meaningful and worthwhile.7.
It’s not just about money.
When it comes to donating to charities or contributing to a community, you are doing something that is good, meaningful, and valuable.
If it helps someone in need, that’s worth your time and money.8.
Your contribution will help your family.
When the time is right, you can make a contribution to your community and give your time to the cause that you care so much about.
That means your contribution is appreciated.
