Today, the world is facing various difficult challenges. In all facets of society, human lives are in a dilemma. As adults, we bear with these burdens on our shoulders and complained about how life had been unfair to us. If grown-ups feel miserable, how much more children who were abandoned by parents, left on the streets to fend for themselves or force to fight everyday life to survive in the harshest of conditions.
It is important to know that each and every one of us can make a big difference in children’s lives, one of that is the outreach programs project that extends helps by donating to a children’s charity.
Donating to a children’s charity organization is considered one of the most fulfilling aspects of being human. Giving donations acts as a lifeline to these unfortunate children. Because love is a universal feeling, one person does not need to be a parent to have a compassionate heart for children. An individual does not need the skills and talents to donate to children’s charity. This act of love is a human desire God had given us since the day we were born. We all have the capacity to put it into good use.
As an old song says, “I believe the children are our future…” Indeed true. We cannot just turn a blind eye to these unfortunate children. Donating to a children’s charity of time, effort and money is not only for the sole benefits of the children, but it also benefits the giver. In the act of giving, there lies a deep sense of unselfishness and gratitude to the life we presently have.
If we think about it, these children live in deep poverty, sickness and malnutrition, little do we know, they may feel severe distress at an early age. Their young, innocent minds and frail bodies were vulnerable to traumatic events, something they can carry through adulthood if not given time to heal. Children may have their parents, but a sad truth remains, these children did not get the love, care, and attention they need because of the lack of emotional and financial stability of their parents to deal with the problems.
Having said that, many parents tried their best, but for some, these children, unfortunately, ended up in shelters and orphanages. This is one of the reasons why different organizations and even private individuals donated to children’s charities to help them continue a life cut short by unfortunate events and go on a road to a better future – healthy, educated, and skilled.
History was filled with individuals who had risen from poverty and abandonment. They benefited from the efforts of generous people who donated their time and money to these children’s charities. These individuals who became successful later in life were living testimonies of how these donations were not wasted in vain. One day, these children will look back and remember the nameless and faceless people who helped them live a much better life. It is a reminder that they also have the power to pay it forward to the children of the future.
