 This is the season of giving and the time for us to make a commitment to give all the time, not just at the holidays.  For those of us who are comfortable enough in our life styles to be able to buy presents for others, decorate our houses and to do all the things we do at holiday time: this is a time for us to make a greater commitment to giving to those in the world who have no houses, or who live in huts covered with straw.  Of course we deserve to have a good holiday, but we must use this time to realize that the wealth of the world is not shared enough. There are too many people whose children do not have enough to eat, schools to go to, medical care, and clean clothing to wear. 

Sometimes it is painful to think about the needy. It is easier for each one of us to give our small donations and then feel that we have done our part.  It is only fair to say, that for some of us, small donations are all that we can afford. However, many who read these words have enough wealth to share if they are willing to give up some of the expensive items they usually enjoy.  Many are wealthy enough to leave money to their children, live well themselves, and still give a good proportion of their wealth to those who have nothing.  But it may mean getting over habits such as buying the most expensive handbags and shoes, and staying in the most expensive hotels. It may mean seeing a trinket in a store that costs a couple hundred dollars, and realizing in that moment, that $200 USD in some countries would feed a child for a year or so.  Do we really NEED that extra trinket when a child somewhere is starving?  If each one of us, no matter what our financial situation, gave up just a little bit more to charity, we might see great results as we help the needy.

If you are interested in giving to the needy, there are a number of projects that I have investigated and I will be happy to share information with you.
