Explore the value of Charity
Joy is prayer - Joy is strength - Joy is love - Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. She gives most who gives with Joy.
The trouble is that rich people, well-to-do people, very often don't really know who the poor are; and that is why we can forgive them, for knowledge can only lead to love, and love to service. And so, if they are not touched by them, it's because they do not know them.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Six essential qualities that are the key to success: Sincerity, personal integrity, humility, courtesy, wisdom, charity.
Dr. William Claire Menninger
Love is not patronizing and charity isn't about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same—with charity you give love, so don't just give money but reach out your hand instead.
Work and live to serve others, leave the world a little better than you found it and garner for yourself as much peace of mind as you can. This is happiness.

There is so much god one person can do. I figured, if I woke up this morning, there must be a live to improve - even if it is only my own. I had a stroke and was laid off from my work- now I run Empty Bowl Pet Food Pantry Disaster Services that gave $665,000 of product to struggling families in Arizona!

Greed is the plague of the 21st century. Giving and sharing with others expands who we are. Having more is never having enough. Share what you have and give. Giving expands us. Having are the chains binding us from merging with our true selves.

After visiting Australia and New Zealand a few years ago, I want to do something for these people who have gone through so many natural disasters: floods, earthquakes, etc. The people from these two countries were very polite and courteous of American tourists. I believe what goes around comes around. I want to make a financial donation to the people of Queensland, Australia and Christchurch, New Zealand. Let's give a helping hand to our good friends "Downunder"!
