If this last year has proven anything it is the importance of helping others. We have all faced an incredibly challenging year and so many of us have relied on the help and the support which others have provided. It is going to be very important therefore that once all of this has passed, that we continue to put effort into helping others, and supporting those less fortunate than ourselves. Even before the events of the last 12 months I had been heavily inspired by people like musician Tiffany Ash, who has always been outspoken on the subject of philanthropy. Indeed thanks to Tiffany it is actually something which I have been involved with in many forms, and here is why t is such an important responsibility which more of us should take on.
Something which we have lost a great deal over the last 30 years is that true sense of community. The reality is that communities are only as strong as the poorest and most vulnerable, and over the years these people have too often been forgotten. Philanthropy is not only about donating to causes around the world, but also about looking after and supporting the most vulnerable in our own local areas. In doing this we can bring together communities.
One person doing good is great, but many doing good things is even better. Through your own efforts to help others you will find that you greatly inspire those around you to follow suit. The more people who are investing their time and their energy in helping others, the more people who are going to be inspired by this, and then we can make a real difference.
Benefits Mental Health
Whilst it should never be the only reason for carrying out charitable work, feeling good about what you are doing is a great benefit which you can count on here. There is nothing wrong with feeling good about yourself when you have helped others. In fact this can actually be beneficial for your mental health, because you can gain great confidence and pride in the fact that you have done good.
There are some truly incredible organizations around the world which are supporting some important causes, and they rely on help to do so. In fact without donations of time and money many of thee organizations will not be able to achieve as much as they want to, and that f course will be a detriment to us all. Giving up your time, finding ways to raise money and dedicating yourself to these organizations is the perfect way to help them reach their goals and to truly improve their chances of succeeding.
It doesn’t always have to be a large scale effort that you make, doing as much as you can, when you can, will be enough to greatly help. If we can all put this little bit of time in then we can all work together to really achieve something special.
