What it means to give

Click HERE
This whole thing about charity and helping people is not just about the recipients of the charity...use 5W-1H, the WHO to brainstorm on the impact on other parties to argue for the relevance or obsolescence of charity today....When you help others, the articles makes it clear that you benefit from it also, even though you may not realise it at that point in time...At any rate, helping -- in the moral sense of the word -- should be unconditional, and not be done on the expectation of any reard or benefits...Also, helping helps to build trust, reciprocity, gratitude and general goodwill among members of the society....the resultant trust helps in fostering social cohesion....So from the society's point of view, charity serves a social function that is of national interest....
