Online Charity organizations are changing lives through their crowdfunding method. They are raising funds from donors online and helping to save millions of lives every day. These funds are gathered and spent for numerous causes: to provide a safe shelter to the homeless people, to provide free diagnosis, treatment, medicines and surgeries for poor patients, to rescue and protect animals from all kinds of abuse and tortures and what not.

Often people doubt the credibility of online charity organizations, and undermine their contribution towards human well being and the welfare of the society but Crowdfunding has reshaped the way we would contribute and extend our hands to help people.
Helen Hannah, Commercial Director at First Capital Cash flow, has explained how online charity organizations have encouraged people to get indulged into greater giving, and have the capability to raise more funds compared to traditional fundraising methods.
Helen Hannah concluded: “We’ve seen from our own research and some of the stats from the likes of the CAF and BRC that people are far more likely to make charitable donations, if they are able to do so digitally.”
First Capital Cash flow had conducted a research which suggested 38% of people are more likely to donate at Christmas, if they were allowed to pay their donations online. This study has shown that 41% of women are more generous during the festive period, and 43% of the younger people aged 18-24 year are concerned about the humanitarian and societal issues, and are willing to give money to charity at Christmas.
It is a good indication that people are warming up their conscience and educating themselves with the love for humanity, and have let this vast compassion to water their inner world which has been lying barren for so long.
Giving to charity during the time of Christmas revives the traditional idea, and belief that holidays are about sharing and caring and showering lots of love not only to our family friends or relatives, but to everyone in our neighborhood. Christmas encourages us to give to people who have nothing. It is always a noble deed to find a gift for a person who is in need instead of giving to a person who has everything.

Samaritan’s Purse is in third position in our list. The story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) gives a clear picture of God’s desire for us to help those in desperate need wherever they find them. After describing how the Samaritan rescued a hurting man whom others had passed by, Jesus told His hearers, “Go and do likewise.” For over 40 years, Samaritan’s Purse has done their utmost to follow Christ’s command by going to the aid of the world’s poor, sick, and suffering. They are an effective means of reaching hurting people in countries around the world with food, medicine, and other assistance in the Name of Jesus Christ. This, in turn, earns us a hearing for the Gospel, the Good News of eternal life through Jesus Christ.
As their teams work in crisis areas of the world, people often ask, “Why did you come?” The answer is always the same: “They have come to help you in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.” Their ministry is all about Jesus—first, last, and always. As the Apostle Paul said, “For they do not preach themselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and themselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake” (2 Corinthians 4:5, NIV).

Who They Are:
MAP International is in fourth position in our list. MAP International is a Christian organization, providing life-changing medicines and health supplies to people in need. MAP serves all people, regardless of religion, gender, race, nationality, or ethnic background.
In 1954, J. Raymond Knighton answered a call in his tiny office at the Christian Medical Society in Chicago. Ray had a reputation for knowing “every medical missionary in the world,” so when a major pharmaceutical company wanted to donate $25,000 in surplus medicines, they knew just who to call.
Ray and his secretary spent three months distributing 11 tons of medicines where they were needed most. So began the Medical Assistance Programs (MAP) – a faith based nonprofit providing essential medicines for mission clinics and hospitals in developing countries around the world.
MAP International is a Christian organization providing life-changing medicines and health supplies to people in need. MAP serves all people, regardless of religion, gender, race, nationality or ethnic background.

5 – Step Up for Students:
Step Up for Students is in fifth position in our list. Step Up For Students empowers parents to pursue and engage in the most appropriate learning options for their children, with an emphasis on families who lack the financial resources to access these options. By pursuing this mission, they help public education fulfill the promise of equal opportunity.
Step Up For Students is a state-approved nonprofit scholarship funding organization that helps administer two scholarships for Florida schoolchildren: the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program (FTC) for low-income families and the Gardiner Scholarship (PLSA) for children with certain special needs.
Public education is rooted in the promise of equal educational opportunity, and nowhere is that covenant more relevant than in the lives of children who live near poverty or for students with certain special needs. A quality education should not be determined by financial means nor disability. Through the scholarships, they empower parents to give their children a chance at a brighter future.
The FTC scholarship program was created to benefit children whose educational options are limited by household income. The scholarships are not tied to the performance of public schools nor the students who receive them. The program is different primarily because it directly targets students with the fewest options available. The latest state-commissioned research determined that students who receive the FTC scholarship are among the lowest-performing in the public schools they leave behind. This means the FTC scholarship is serving the most disadvantaged children in Florida. Our scholarships provide parents a way to help their children find success.
The Gardiner Scholarship (PLSA) helps parents individualize the educational plans for their children with certain special needs.
These scholarships are offered as options in the same way that public education is offering an expanding array of choices. One common mistake people make about these scholarships is to view them as an indictment of public schools. However, they are intended to strengthen public education by offering options to struggling schoolchildren. They consider ourselves to be partners with public schools, and often use the tagline – “helping public education fulfill the promise of equal opportunity” – that represents a genuine expression of how they view their role in the larger education system.
Giving to a charity does not require a heavy wallet either free time, but requires a kind and warm heart. Kindness in giving can create profoundness and love.
There are many children brought up in the orphanages since their birth who had never been with a family. They hardly know what love, care and nurture actually mean.
