We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill.
It has been said that kindness goes a long way.
Even the little good deeds you choose to do in a day already contribute to a better world and community. More importantly, good deeds give you a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction while supporting a good cause. The causes you support can range from doing volunteer work for an NGO in the Philippines to donating money to a Cancer foundation in the Philippines.
The possibilities for doing good deeds are endless, and in doing them, you can help underprivileged and less fortunate individuals deal with and mitigate the hardships they face in their daily lives. As a result, you will be helping them improve their circumstances. One of the best ways to help these marginalized individuals is to donate to NGOs that work for the same cause. In this way, you can do your part for society as a whole. Non-Governmental Organizations are instrumental in filling the gaps in environmental, social, advocacy, and human rights work. Often, they can promote and affect social change on a broad or local scale. That said, NGOs play a pivotal role in developing society, improving communities, and promoting citizen participation.
Below are excellent reasons why you should consider donating to one:
1.) Inner Satisfaction
Donating to a cause gives you a feeling of altruism. In essence, you feel like you are doing your part in the world and society by giving back. We, as humans, are social people. As it is, we do what we can to take care of each other and feel good when someone extends their help or when we receive help in the time of need. When we find a cause that we deeply care about and are passionate about, we would gladly help without questions. In the same way, we do not expect any kind of favor in return. The knowledge that we can contribute to a considerable change through our little good deeds can already give us a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment.
2.) Your small donation can make a world of difference
Many of us have thought of making a contribution towards a good cause. We can do this by either doing volunteer work or donating to an NGO at least once. When you support an NGO, your small donation can already make a significant difference. The donations received are pooled, and the funds out of that pool are then utilized in the execution of life-changing projects and programs in the country. Your donation may seem insignificant to you, but when combined with thousands of other contributions, it becomes big enough to help those who are in need.
3.) It provides a chance to create a better world
We all dream of making the world we live in a better place. In a utopian society, there would be no poverty, sickness, crimes, and environmental issues. While this idealistic dream may seem out of reach, we can work our way to making that dream come true by contributing to a good cause. Making the world a better place can start with a simple donation to an NGO or charity you support. As said above, your small contribution can already go a long way in making a change.
4.) Beneficial for needy people
There are myriads of people that need your help to progress in the country. Determine where your advocacy is, and donate to the cause you support. With your support or donation, you can make a significant difference in the life of a person or a family who needs it. Charity will always be beneficial for the people that need it most.
5.) Set an example
You can be the change you want to see in the world. Giving a donation sets a precedent for good things to come. As a result, you can set an example for the people around you and serve to inspire those who may have thought of donating to the same cause. In this way, NGOs receive more donations that make it easier for them to work on their cause. If you wish to effect a positive impact, you can choose to host a charity event to collect money for a particular cause or partner with an NGO of your choice.
