Reasons why donations to charity make you a good person.

●       Giving to the community can only make you feel more wealthy.

Whenever you make a contribution to a charity, you will feel a sense of pride, wealth and class. If you are contributing to a charity, you are helping other that does not have an adequate resource that you have. Therefore, it will make you feel more wealthy and motivated to make donations every month.

●       Your small donation can make a difference.

There are some people that hold themselves from donating to a charity, thinking their small donation could not make a difference. However, that’s not true. Established charitable organisations such as “Food From The Heart.” have a pool of funds, and your contribution is added to that pool. These pools are filled with small donations like yours that are used to provide food, shelter and clothes to those that are in need.

The best part about making a donation is not a tax deduction but the value you offer to society. The importance of encouraging others to make a contribution is what makes you a good person. Because of your contribution, many of your surroundings start making contributions. Imagine every person in Singapore contributing only 5$; it can make an impact.
