    During the month of Ramadan our school

    collaborated with charity and had girls that volunteered to prepare meals and pack it, then drop it in as many houses of the less fortunate as they can before the prayer calls and they break their fast. I volunteered and we were fasting too, but it never felt tiring and all of...

    I only like helping the less fortunate

    because I feel so bad for them because they can't get to do some of the things we do all day

    I believe it is what all humans should do.

    . To help others who are suffering or less forum ate to yourself. It's such a tragedy that instead people seem to find comfort and strength in laughing at or ignoring the less fortunate. If you have nothing to offer. You can always stop to simply say hello and to say a few in...

    I work with refugees

    and anyone that has anything negative to say about bringing them in has no clue the world they live in. We don't deal with horrors of war on a regular basis and these people have taken a brave journey to escape from the violence sometimes going thousands of miles to do so. So if...

    There was a day where my friends

    and I went to buy our lunch along the street, a beggar came to me for some money. He was old and looked really weak. Most of people pretended like they didn't hear the old man's beg meanwhile I handed some change from my lunchbox's pay to him. He thanked me and while waiting...

    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.

    I saw this man on the side of the road holding

    a sign the other day, his sign said "Not homeless, but I am a father and I am struggling to feed my two daughters PLEASE HELP" So I called him over to the car and I gave him $20 he cried to me and he said "Wow, thank you so much" It made my day

    I started a Go Fund Me account

    for a single mother and her family in need. She lost her job and got behind on a bunch of bills. Then, her electric and water got turned off. I felt so inspired and touched to help her. Someone donated $600 anonymously to turn her electric back on! I cried. I'm hoping to raise...

    Helping others is something

    that gave me more joy than all other things i do. After i gave a piece of bread to the young boy begging for food, i felt that though I can't correct what he is going through but i could still help, and make a difference.

    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.

    We all need help way

    or the other. But there are more out there who are less fortunate than myself who are in dire need of help. During my lunchtime, I would walk around and when I'm not that hungry I would go to McDonald's and buy few sandwiches and I would distribute it to some of the homeless...

    I'm sorry if this sounds like a rant.

    But I have been working with refugees now for a little over a year now and to call these people lazy or security risk is the most laughable thing I have ever heard. On the second point first the vetting process for refugees to get into the country is crazy. You are literally...

    and I don't expect anything in return from anyone. I have a soft spot for those who don't have much because they are the strongest people for being able to live day by day. I'm not calling anyone weak either. For some reason, I feel like I don't get what I deserve. Is it wrong...

    Just watching MJ's Man in the Mirror.

    Nothing has changed. This could be 2015. Indifference and lack of compassion is rife. People are more fake than ever. Billionaires are barely philanthropic when they could help so much. The effing 1% give little relatively while the 99% are giving as much as they can spare! And...

    Selflessness is the best we can hope for.

    Unfortunately there aren't that many selfless people and from my experience, people usually take advantage of selfless people to the point that they (I) just want to give up.
