Explore the value of Charity
Every good act is charity. A man's true wealth hereafter is the good that he does in this world to his fellows.
To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.
G. K. Chesterton
This was a splendid life. Splendid in its obscurity and humility, splendid in its strength and charity, splendid in its achievements.
Robert C. Mortimer
And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.
Theodor Seuss Geisel
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.
The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own.
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.

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!
It seems the 20th and 21st century has highlighted the need for forgiveness. It is a necessary component in moving on without deepening the wounds that were inflicted.

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.

Charity begins from home and a good friend is cheaper than therapy.

"your conscience teaches your mind how to think.
your heart how to feel.
your soul how to obey and most importantly your body
how to perform extraordinary acts of charity and kindness toward your fellow man."

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"!
