Charity is the act of extending love and kindness to others unconditionally. It is a conscious act in which one does without expecting a reward for. It is a selfless act of love to others.
The practice of charity means the voluntary giving of help to those in need, as a humanitarian act.
Charity begins with an inward recognition of a need to show compassion to others be it consciously or unconsciously. Giving to charity doesn’t require one to be a billionaire, it’s the thought behind the gift that matters. Charity starts with those who downplay their own problems, in order to extend a hand of kindness and compassion to help others
Purpose of charity:
Charity is an essential part of our everyday life and it is meant to be done for public benefit, relief and to provide assistance to people at times of need in any part of the world. People who benefit from charitable organizations are mostly victim of war, natural disaster, catastrophe, hunger, disease, outbreaks, poverty, orphans etc. They are reached out to by supplying them with food, shelter, medical aid and other fundamental needs to survive.
At StillIRise, aside the aforementioned, we also aim to empower people, men and women to start up businesses of their choice to enable them survive their everyday lives as some people barely have a source of livelihood. We also understand the importance of education and make available grants, awards to students for full-time education. Basically we contribute to making lives better.
IMPORTANCE OF CHARITY
1: Giving to charity makes you feel good.
It’s a form of mood booster. Knowing that you’re helping others is empowering and in turn can make you feel happier and more fulfilled.
2: Improving the World Community
We’re all trying to make the world a better place. One person’s charitable giving can positively impact more people.
3: Charitable communities help foster a happier and healthier world by improving the quality of life for those around us as a whole.
4: Giving to charity strengthens personal values.
Having the power to improve the lives of others is a privilege on its own that comes with a sense of responsibility. Giving helps us feel like we’re living in a way that is true to our own ethical beliefs.
5: when you give, you save a life, you put a smile on the faces of people. That alone is fulfilling in its own way.
6: Charity work is therapeutic in ways one can’t imagine.
When many people in their own little way do little things, the whole world changes. Kindness is a gift everyone can afford. The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest idea. Why not give help to offer hope to the hopeless today? Remember we rise by lifting others.
