    I should say I am selfish

    when it comes to helping less fortunate ,i guess you dont understand what I mean. from the age of 8 I started helping less fortunate by providing food and watching them eating it gave me immense pleasure while I watch them eating with hunger that gives me pleasure and from that...

    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...

    Children. Wherever they are they need care.

    If their parents are incapable then the world needs to come to their aid. They are the future of us all, and we must safeguard the future of our peoples. I cannot think that close to where I live here in Amsterdam there may be children in extreme want! It's so bloody awful! We...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
