Some interesting facts about giving by the Canadians
Canadians love giving charity, the statistics tell us as much. Almost 84 percent of the Canadians donate, in one way or another. The majority of donors are more than 30 years of age. In the year 2010, the average annual donation made by a single citizen was around 450 dollars, which is quite a lot. The reasons for which Canadians donate are universal. It is either because they want to empathize with someone, want to help a cause, or simply want to fulfill certain religious obligations. Sorry for the harangue if you are a Canadian!
Where to make a monetary donation in Canada?
First, let us have a look at some places that are happy to accept your monetary donation. There are many organizations operational in Canada, which make the best use of donations collected. These charities help the underprivileged class of society, using funds they raise. The target audience of these charity organizations is both local, as well as international. Some of these reputable charities include:
1- Canadian Red Cross
2- Food Banks Canada
4- United Way Centraide Canada
5- The Salvation Army in Canada
All these charities and a few more like these try to take care of suffering individuals from different communities, all across Canada.
What about donating from Canada via an online platform, can you pull that off? Of course, you can. That is if you know the right places. There are many online platforms, which can collect your donation, and put it in a good cause. Most of the charities in Canada collect funds with the help of CanadaHelps, a platform that is secure, easy to use, and most importantly, transparent. You can find many causes on the registered charity web pages. Donating becomes much easier if you follow this route. Of course, the target audience of these donations is not limited to just Canada.
However, there are some other platforms to donate money online, even if you are sitting in Canada. One such platform is Transparent Hands.
Transparent Hands is the largest technological platform for crowdfunding in the healthcare sector of Pakistan. It offers a complete range of free healthcare services including medical and surgical treatments, medical camps, and telehealth facilities to the underprivileged community of Pakistan. The platform provides visibility to underprivileged patients and builds a personal and trusted bond between patients and donors while ensuring complete transparency. It also sets up free medical camps in the rural areas of Pakistan in which, free medical consultation, free medicines, and free diagnostic tests are provided to the deserving patients. Donors from all over the world can use the Transparent Hands crowdfunding web portal and donate through 100% secure payment modes. They could select any patient, fund the treatment, and receive regular feedback and updates until the patient has recovered completely.
Significance of donations
If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it is the importance of charity. Have a look at your surroundings. Do not you see the governments buckle under the ever-mounting economic pressures? If it was not for these charitable institutes, we promise you, the consequences would have been direr than they are now. So, in other words, it is the noble spirit of giving, that has saved humanity from a total wipeout. And it must not stop here. Because if the affectionate hands stopped taking care of those who are suffering, terrible things are going to happen. Funding withdrawn means a lifeline is withdrawn. This is one of the dimensions of the donation that you made or are about to make. It saves lives!
Well, that is all for now. Many charitable institutes are playing their part very responsibly as we speak. They help those who are in misery, both in and outside Canada. Humanity, after all, has no borders. Once again, we implore you to refrain from thinking about the amount. In these troubled times, every single penny matters!
