We often frown about the life we are living, because we have this tendency to believe that: ‘the grass is always green on the other side of the river!’ .How People Donated Money on Thanksgiving 2018

1.Feeding the Hungry:
There is no sincere giving than feeding the hungry stomach.
Only a hungry person knows what it feels to go without food for several days. It is not easy to suppress your hunger for a long time, especially when your body and mind wants to shut down due to exhaustion.
People who are fortunate enough have extended their hands on this Thanksgiving, by making donations to food banks and charitable organizations that are fighting against hunger and poverty. Their generous contribution has enabled charities to provide emergency meals to men, women and children around the world.
We live in an unequal world where healthcare is treated as a commodity, and is only available to those who can pay well for all medical facilities.
Medical trusts and other charitable organizations are operating to provide affordable health care to poor men, women and children across the globe.
Medical trusts have harnessed the power of the internet, to raise funds for poor patients to pay for their medical treatment and surgeries.
People have widely accepted this revolutionary idea. They have extended their kind support to save millions of lives through the internet.
3.Giving relief to war-torn souls:
We cannot stop war unless the concept of holding one nation superior above the other is wiped out. Again, we cannot witness the disgrace of humanity and keep on hearing the cries and lamentations of war victims every now and then.
Many donors have lent out their hands to support the Humanitarian organizations for their humanitarian exertions. Without their humanitarian aid and relief work, the war would have far more catastrophic effects on the war victims.
Humanitarian organizations have received donations from generous donors around the world. These funds were spent to protect families torn out by war, save the children from the hardships of separation, feeding and sheltering refugees and combating the spread of diseases in the war field.
4.Caring for the elderly:
When the strength of our old parents or grandparents fails, it is our responsibility to provide them with a soft cushion of care and love just as they had done for us in our childhood.
Everybody knows what is right or wrong but seldom have we performed righteous deeds. Every day, we see numerous old people being abandoned by their own children or grandchildren and are sent to old age homes.
Many kind hearts couldn’t bear the turmoil of the elderly, and have donated to the elderly homes to support this vulnerable population. Their donations will ensure that the elder ones can live the last few years of their lives with dignity.
