Celebrity Causes. Views #899 Money and Charity. Paul: Hi, this is Paul from England speaking with Katia from Mexico. First question is do you give money to charity? Katia: Well, Paul, it's a difficult question because you really want to help people, but I always question myself where if the money really gets to where it's supposed to go, so personally I rarely do give money to charities. I'd rather give my time, so I know if it's actually something happening. What about you? Paul: Yeah, I guess that makes sense.

If it's a registered charity then I don't see there's a problem really with giving a donation. Katia: Yeah, I guess so, but really I wonder. Paul: How about if you're walking down the street and you see a homeless person asking for money? Katia: Homeless people! Paul: Yeah, I'd agree with you. Katia: Why not men and only women? Katia: So you think the woman really doesn't have a choice, and the man... Paul: I think it's more difficult for a woman. Katia: Possibly. Paul: For sure. Paul: I'm a little bit reluctant to give money. Charities. St John Ambulance: Popcorn - Adeevee. Charity Logos Quiz - By bazmerelda. 147630. 147630.

ELLLO Views #914 Relief Work. 914: What charity would you like to help? Show Text / Hide Text Hi, everyone, this is Buddhini for and our topic today is what charity would you like to help. I have always wanted to help people who love to study but they are unable to due to so many problems. I believe that education is a fundamental right and it's at most a responsibility to help people who love to learn, who love to study, but who don't have the means to do it, because studies and learning, let's say, call it education, helps people to get to know about many things and education helps people to be wise and being wise can solve many problems in our society, so it's education that we need to pay attention to and ... so that many of us who are not privileged to go to school and have their basic education, we need to help them out.

I don't mean to say education is the only thing that's important in charity but if we can help people out who love to study I think it will be something very wonderful and something we should do.

We should all strive to make the world a better place, but that can be difficult to do when your life is moving ahead a thousand miles per hour. If you can’t donate your time, the least you can do is donate a little money to someone in need, and with Google’s One Today app you can easily find a new nonprofit to help support. I’ve written before about apps that help you choose a charity to work with, but One Today is particularly neat because it makes giving with your smartphone more interactive. The app will notify you each day of a different nonprofit to check out based on your interests; the more you give, the better the app gets at picking one that interests you.

You can offer to donate between $1-$10, or set up a match donation to rally your friends on social media and collectively contribute even more money. The more people you bring on board, the more rallying power you have in your giving profile. I’m typically wary of apps that aim to make it “effortless” to help others. One Today.
