WHY I DONATE TO CAUSES?
Because, it affects the people I care about. I care about my family. The whole world is my family. My world consists of all living species. I cannot live with the guilt of abandoning others.
If you choose not to donate, you are not only abandoning your present blood and distant relatives but also your future loved ones.
Just because, your mother didn't get breast cancer doesn't imply your great grand-daughter won't.
Further, the value of your donation increases exponentially over time considering economy has only risen over time. A small investment made in the community now will have a significant impact in the future. If instead that investment is not made, the value of money is static of that time and the impact on society is none.
I try to imagine donating money as investing in stocks, except there is no risk involved. You are bound to make a big impact on the society over time and get value for your money. This impact will be truly appreciated by your great grandchildren.
So please DONATE TO EVERY CAUSE. It is just a matter of time before that cause affects you directly.
I'm a thinker, dreamer, doer and a strong follower of stoicism. I have a passion to learn and apply that to make the world a better place.
