I Like Helping People Less Fortunate

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 9,130 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.

    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....

    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...

    There once was a man,

    standing alone on the beach, bending over picking up starfish, and throwing them into the water. Another man was jogging by and paused to observe him. The beach was covered with starfish, from the storm that occurred the night before. The man looked puzzled as he watched the...

    I really wanted to do something to change the

    world for the better. I found this organization called Children International. At first, I thought it was a scam (it's sad that scams have become such a justified concern), but on further investigation, I was relieved to find out it's legit. I have been sponsoring three...

    Avoiding Him.

    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.

    I wish I could help a lot of people less

    fortunate, but I hate those times where someone comes up to me for money and they are surrounded by other bums or hobos and if I give that one hobo a dollar, Ill feel guilty for not giving a dollar to others.

    If someone is outside begging

    for money and I'm getting food, I'll buy something for them. It makes me feel good. Once, I gave a homeless man a slice of a pizza as I was taking ours home. My autistic son was very moved. He kept saying how I did a wonderful thing. I love how sweet my children are to others...

    I like to help others.

    so much joy to your life. It helps me to keep on going I don't feel like I'm just living a meaningless life. Sometimes even the smallest gesture of kindness could mean the world to someone!!

    Your sensitivity to the poor

    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...

    I have a soft spot for the homeless.

    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...
