I Would Like to Help Fight Poverty

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 414 People

    Yes

    Poverty is something that I very much would like to work in regards to fighting against.  It is something that tears away opportunities, access to health, food, shelter, it robs of the basic needs we as human beings have.  Whilst human right documents purport that...

    With This Money, We Can Help Anyone With Their Poverty. Let Us Be A Big Team, And Help Them Out!!

    Ever since I was little I like helping others. So I started to go orphanage to take care of children at the age of 13. And now i'm successful in my marketing business so I am supporting 25 kids in Africa through World Vision. And I am planning to fly to Africa to see my kids...

    Maybe this isn't an experience

    but I am wondering if anyone out there agrees that capitalism is just broken! Competition in markets can be good, particularly when we are talking about luxury items. 2 brands of the same soda? Go for it! Helps drive down the price. But we cannot let people compete for basic...

    Only If They Earn It...

    I frequently give up what I have for others. What I see more often than not is people taking advantage. They take advantage of me, they refuse to get jobs, they do drugs. In USA most of the people in poverty are just lazy butts who refuse to work hard. Additionally, the...

    ONe Item At a Time

    I can't fix it all in one day, nor can I do it alone. We all need to ban together and do whatever it takes! It's not much but my daughter and I volunteer at the shelters year round and I subscribe to their newsletters so that I don't miss a beat. We also hold our annual canned...

    Dog Eat Dog

    It makes no sense to me, in this country of untold riches- one of the richest nations on earth- that people are living and suffering in poverty. They are marginalized/demoralized/dehumanized/demonized and even criminalized for it. The homeless eat from dumpsters and immolate...

    World Vision 40 Hour Famine.

    Hey everyone. :) Do you know that in East Timor 50% of people don't get enough food, and 49% of those are children? Half the children in East Timor have stunted growth due to malnourishment. I'm doing the 40 hour famine this year, and going without food for 40 hours. If anyone...

    A Noble Ambition

    Speaking as someone who has lived his entire adult life one paycheck ahead of financial catastrophe, I must agree that helping to fight poverty is a noble ambition.  However, I am reminded of the words of the great Reverend Ike who said, "The best way to help poor...

    People Fought For Me When I Was Poor.

    I grew up poor.  My family was a member of the "working poor"...too rich for welfare and too poor to make it without welfare.  I grew up with a great family who did everything to make sure I had what I needed and I eventually graduated from law school. ...

    I Feel As If God Blesses Us...

    I feel as if god blesses us in turn to bless others, so when I get the opportunity to do something for someone else I'm much less hesitant to take it these days.  Especially those who really need the help, I know he will take care of me because I'm helping to take care of...
