5 reasons why you should donate to charities

Even if you don't have much disposable income, giving just a little of what you have can benefit your life. Read on to discover a few reasons why you should donate to charities.

  • You’ll feel rich

  • Giving to others increases your capacity for love. It makes you realize that even if you don’t have much, you have enough to share with others. In fact, analysis of giving data shows that poor people donate a larger percentage of their income to charity than rich. Donating used clothes to a shelter, new shoes to foster kids, or money to a worthy organization will make you feel rich.

  • Be part of something bigger

  • Donating a little bit of money or something may not seem like much. But if your donation is joined with others, it becomes something much bigger. 

  • Join a cause

  • Foundations need research money to discover ways to cure diseases. Other non-profit organizations help different groups of people with specific needs. A lot of this money is raised through donations. You probably know people who run or bike a race to support a cause close to them. If you feel passionate about a cause like this, join a race or donate money or anything.

  • Set an example

  • If you have children, donating to charity will show them you care about others and want to make the world a better place. If you involve your children in choosing charities, you will instill a desire to share and serve that will last throughout their lives. Grandchildren, nieces and nephews can also be influenced by your generosity towards others.

     
  • A grateful heart

  • When you donate to charities, you feel grateful. We are glad to have clean water to drink, cook with and use in my home. When we made kits of supplies to be sent to disaster areas, we reminded how blessed we are to have a safe home and emergency supplies on hand. As you give food to a local food bank, or write a check for an organization that helps people in need, you can’t help but feel thankful for the blessings in your own life.
