There is strength in numbers, a group of people standing together and uniting for a common cause can make a real and lasting impact in the world around them. It is the same with a monthly donation to charity. A group effort, where the common cause is aimed at the same result is more likely to make a lasting difference than a once off donation that promises to sponsor a child in South Africa.
Why is donating to charity important? In every human lies the capacity for empathy, but empathy is still no measure of a soul unless acted upon. Our greatness in this life is not measured by what we acquire, rather it is our ability to reach beyond the material and extend our reach to others That, we believe, is a part of everyone’s journey on earth.
Only by giving are you able to receive more than you already have.
