0 Good charities to donate to
Last Christmas I made a decision that I would just like to donate some of time in helping to feed the homeless, an excellent charity to donate to, I�m sure you will realise.
Donations for charity
I had never succeeded in doing so before, so it was about time I did, I had created thought about it often before this, even my kids who had flown the coop in the past, had done so. My partner was away and my mate would arrive later your evening, so off I went.
How much of an enlightening experience it was! Heart wrenching and enlightening.
That are These People
I saw single males and females, single parent families, young children and teens. To look at many of them, you would think they lived near. They probably did! Others showed the obvious signs of struggle through life and obviously were homeless for quite a while.
On one side of the park, where I had been with one of the charities you can donate to, were families and adults of all ages. On the opposite side of the park were the young adolescents. There appeared to be a variety of ages represented in every areas.
These individuals needed additional aide and undoubtedly a grin from a stranger.
I had the pleasure of serving the coleslaw within their Christmas dinner. I remember one lovely Asian lady who unexpectedly popped along with a special food treat. You could tell she visited a lot of effort.
The true and deep appreciation of the homeless folk for a lot of comfort food really gladdened my heart and made me feel special. Me, you are not a roof over my head, an individual who is not on the poverty line, is made to feel special by those homeless people. All of them smiled back and were polite.
There are a considerable amount of charities to donate to, good charities to donate to.
What's Inside a Name?
The one that sparked my interest rates are called Sheltered by Grace. They provide not only a roof over their heads, but gets rid of it into society as a valued member, by helping these to regain their identity. In my experience, this is a worthwhile charity.
Sheltered by Grace, the name says it all, doesn�t it?
This truly remarkable charity focuses on providing a total recovery program which is quite unique. http://www.sbg.org.au/what-we-do/ By making use of a self-sustaining model they may not be reliant on government funding. You may be able to offer your valuable assist with ideas, volunteering http://www.sbg.org.au/volunteer-time/ donations, clothing, furniture along with other goods or services?
Currently they could use your help with the funding of their latest project, a bold and much needed venture to raise the shelter from 12 beds to 48 beds. Considering that 1 out of every 200 people Australia are homeless on any given night, certainly qualifies this venture of Sheltered by Grace, to be one of the best charities to donate to in helping the homeless. http://www.sbg.org.au/donate-now/ .
Laying the concrete slab for the second stage of development will be the current enterprising stage on this project being addressed. You also can take part in this brilliant project, with your support in various ways.
As Martin Luthor King said �everyone may be great- because everyone can serve.� How can we, as just one individual, offer some support? (http://www.sbg.org.au/donate-items/)
Australians are known as great humanitarians, a generous and providing people. Our common humanity is more important than our interesting differences.
Former U.S. president Bill Clinton said �almost everyone - in spite of income, available time, age and skills - can perform something useful for others and in the process, strengthen the fabric of our shared humanity.� http://www.sbg.org.au/can-help/
Chairman of Sheltered by Grace, Jason Loakes, believes how the model being built-in Waterford can be duplicated throughout Australia. WOW. Suppose that.
At times of great need, communities band together. Homelessness can be a nationwide problem, built to be rapidly increasing. The indisputable fact that 1 in 200 Australians is homeless is shocking alone, but the fact that nearly 18,000 of the homeless people are actually children under 10 years of age, is absolutely and undeniably mind-boggling.
Valuable funding could be the solution and the fact that your donations are tax deductible makes this an attractive option for the corporate sector along with the private individual. http://www.sbg.org.au/corporate-sponsorship/ Who do you know that can help?
Australians should rally behind this worthwhile project. You know, one of the things that intrigued me about this project was the aim gauge. Watching the growth with the project is to me an important part, being kept in the loop helps everyone to see, as well as glance at the rewards of our efforts, to feel we are a part of the process, which our individual contribution has some significance. Please join Sheltered by Grace because every contribution is critical!
