Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 15,339 People

    i wish i could just help others all the time.

    All i ever want is to do good for others out there. Like from helping them with problems to helping with poverty. i don't care what type of help if it is as long as others are happy from it.

    I know what it's like to have next to nothing.

    It doesn't hurt me to give a homeless or person in need a dollar or two if I have more than enough for my own needs.
