Explore the value of Charity
Service is a smile. It is an acknowledging wave, a reaching handshake, a friendly wink, and a warm hug. It's these simple acts that matter most, because the greatest service to a human soul has always been the kindness of recognition.
Richelle E. Goodrich
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.
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
While we do our good works let us not forget that the real solution lies in a world in which charity will have become unnecessary.
W. Anton Chekov
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.

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.

"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"!
