What in your life have you done to help someone or something less fortunate to you?
Do you drop coins in beggars hats?
Or is it all too political to try and do the right thing?
Recently when I moved to a new town I tried to start volunteerin, it has taken months to be actually able to see people and talk to them. I had to fill in paperwork, sign consent forms, get police clearances.... It seems helping people has become harder than ever!
What do you think?
What have I done with my life? Well during major holidays my family and I do Meals on Wheels. We deliver holiday food to the elderly that can't get out of their house to get food. But the only other thing that I do is donate my old clothes and stuff to Goodwill.
Oh and you know those salvation army guys that ring the bells asking for donations? When its cold enough to wear a jacket, I buy them coffee. But yeah... volenteering doesn't take that much paperwork for me atleast.
I put togetther a computer for a family that one parent has cancer and no money coming in. The kids needed the computer for school work.
I have given money to hospitals, not much but its something
I do anything I can to help people that are less fortuante than myself... sadly... that doesn't leave many people left (just kidding, Im not that bad)... but I do get a kick out of the people that are well off, that think they have more rights than everyone else...
I have given money, donated time, overall just been nice to a complete stranger...
but in todays society (at least in the US), it is getting harder and harder to do anything nice... you try and help someone, and say something doesn't go 100% the way it should have, and all of a sudden, you are getting sued because it was your fault that something went wrong and you put the other person or group in that predicument...
im a vegan. so i am doing my bit for the animals and for the earth
I don't give money to homeless and panhandlers because a lot of them arent actually homeless, they're just f*cking lazy and dont want to work a real job. So I give to no one. If I want to help the homeless, I'll give to the Salvation Army or Goodwill.
