    Avoiding Him.

    Me and my family were at a nearby museum downtown. It was a special occasion because my Dad was promoted to the next level in his job. I was very young so at the time I did not know about some people not having homes. I thought everyone had a home and someone to go home to...

    A way to give a helping hand is to go to your

    local electric or gas company and pay a needy family's bill anonymously....not just at Christmas, but periodically throughout the year! Spread the love....

    I make sure I clean out my house (I mean really

    clean out) once a month and donate to families that are less fortunate. It not only helps a family in need, but it really helps make me appreciate what I have. Charity work is a great way for people to build relationships with other's of different walks of life. It helps you...

    I like to help others.

    I do it willingly and without expecting anything in the end EXCEPT a thank you. I feel like I am blessed and I always want to return the blessing. Nothing upsets me more than giving a gift or doing something nice and not receiving any acknowledgement. It shows a complete...

    Money is everything,

    and I hate that, but I want to do what I can to make this world less ugly. I want to be a doctor one day, because of the money. There would be enough for me, and I can have a massive charity budget. I can also volunteer my services every weekend, and that'll be one of the best...

    Put Yourself In Their Shoes

    If you are crying don't you want someone to wipe your tears? If you can't find food to eat don't you want someone to feed you? If you are cold don't you want someone to warm you? So why so selfish? Why don't we be that someone? We are all brothers and sisters in humanity...

    It Does Help to Care.

    No It's not your money that helps the most, it's the eye contact, the acknowledgment of they're existence ,  the nonjudgmental tone in your voice as you say "hey we've all been in bad places, I understand.  I wish you luck man!"  as you walk away to go on...

    My parents also taught me to help others in

    need. My mom said when her and my dad first met the first thing they talked about was building a shelter for the homeless. I guess their ideas rubbed off on me. If I see a homeless person and I have some extra money I usually try to give.

    Homelessness Hurts Everyone

    I worked at a homeless shelter for a year. I didn't really like the job but it was one of the most rewarding experiences I have had. You see people from every walk of life and realize, "this could happen to me." No, homelessness is not solely a result of laziness. It really...
