Should there be such a big homelessness problem in our world? There’s billionaires, millionaires, and those with high incomes. So why do we have such a problem? It appears that the poor is handing over money that they could use to survive but they feel the need to “give” to those who are less fortunate than them. When we see advertisements on television, they’re ask for donations from people with families, people with low incomes, and people who live paycheck to paycheck but what about all the money that’s being shipped out to those who throw a ball or catch a ball? What about those wealthy investment brokers or those on the level as Donald Trump? Couldn’t they afford to give and if each and everyone of them gave than we may seem some improvements. Of course it’s up to them but why does the poor give more than the rich?
Anderson L. states (2015) states; “Since the recession, the rich have benefitted most from financial gains, but interestingly, at the same time, it’s the poor who upped their giving during that period while higher-income people gave less, according to the Chronicle of Philanthropy.” If the poor is poor then it’s likely that they will stay that way. If they’re giving more than they receive. Some people are giving with little to no money left. That’s not saying that they shouldn’t give but when they’re in need npo one may come to their aid.
Shouldn’t everyone chip in? If we all did than we wouldn’t have to hear or see so many people struggling the way that they do. There’s no need to be selfish with money because none of us will be able to take it with us to heaven or in some cases hell. So why aren’t people more giving, especially those who have more than enough, that’s something to think about? The less fortunate may receive phone calls demanding them to hand over money that they s politely try to explain that they don’t have. It seems agencies, charities, and organizations may not want to hear that. Not everyone is in a position to give but for those who are, why don’t they, what prevents them from helping out?
People can do what they want with their money but this is just an observation. There’s shows on television showing how some throw money around, throwing it up in the club, or purchasing jewelry worth millions of dollars. Again, it’s up to them to spend their money the way that they want, but wouldn’t it be a good idea to donate some of that money to those who are in need. There’s children suffering from cancer, families living on the streets, children without a place to call home. Children dying from diseases because of unclean water and bacteria in their food.
Michael Jackson was a “Giver”
People can say what they want about how Michael Jackson lived or what he did or didn’t do but they can not say that he wasn’t a giver or cared about people. Michael Jackson was a humanitarian. He cared enough to donate to Africa and people in need. Being a giver is a positive and rewarding thing to do. We never know what tomorrow holds. We could have this or that today and it can be gone tomorrow. A rich man can end up a poor man and vice versa. It appears we need to do better. We need to “care” more. A lot of issues can decrease if we took a better stand.
