The more you give, the more you get back in return (philanthropic and charitable efforts)

The more you give, the more you get back in return.

Aiming for wealth is good but in my honest opinion, utilising the wealth for the good of others is also respectable, no?

We hear in the press about rich folks giving millions away for philanthropic and charitable efforts. Even Warren Buffett gave away a mighty proportion of his wealth to Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Very admirable.

Perhaps it’s time for us to do the same as well? Granted, we don’t have as much wealth as these guys do, but giving little by little will certainly make a difference in the long run, wouldn’t you agree?

For the past couple of weeks, I have been promoting 5 charity organisations that I currently support. I’m not able to give much financial support just yet but hopefully by advertising them on my blog, I’ll be able to give them some extra exposure. Anyway, to recap, here they are again:

1. PLAN Australia
2. Fred Hollows Foundation
3. Operation Smile Australia
4. Muslim Aid Australia
5. Human Appeal International

I’ve always been thinking to myself about giving back when I’m a bit well off. Often, when we are indeed “well off”, we always have excuses not to give back. So, instead of allowing myself to do that, I’m forcing myself to do my part. It’s not much, but at least it’s something. I urge all of you to do the same. It doesn’t have to be the organisations I’ve listed above. You can support any organisations that you feel comfortable with.

On top of having an investment portfolio, how about having a charity portfolio as well? Sounds fair? After all, the more you give, the more you’ll get back.

Do share in the comments section below of the charity organisations that you support.

Sponsoring a Child: Will it make any difference (PLAN Australia)?

There’s one charity organisation that I like here in Australia. The name of the organisation is PLAN Australia.

PLAN Australia exists to combat poverty around the world. One thing that I like about PLAN Australia is that they don’t discriminate people based on their religion or political beliefs.

One of the programs that they have is the child sponsorship program. With just around AUD43 per month, you will be funding the well being of a child and his/her community.

What do you guys reckon? Can sponsoring a child really make a difference?
