Why Do People Donate?. Is is to boost their own ego?. Is it because they are all interconnected in this giant universe, and they are compelled to do so?. But a much better question is, why do you donate to strangers, family, friends and acquaintances?. Well I can guarantee you that people donate because at one time or another, they have been donated to. Whether it was a favor done for them, whether it was an encouraging word they received while in a deep depression, or even while they were standing in line and someone gave them their spot.
And also because all people have good inside them, for even the criminal or murderer is good to his friends. And he shares whatever loot he collects, and whatever other good fortune that comes his way. And when someone does his friends wrong, then he is quick to exact revenge by donating his energy, his expertise, his skill to be the protector of them. And I shared all that to show you that people donate because there is good inside everyone, even when misapplied.
Another reason people donate is by association, and what I mean by that is if someone had a bad situation happen to them early in life, and now he or she sees someone else going through that exact same situation, then this person will quickly get involved and donate their time, their expertise, their energy, and even their money to help this other person. All because of the nightmares this situation forces them to relieve, and the pain is so much that they do not want to see it taking place the same exact ways all over again. And that person wants to improve humanity through the act of philanthropy.
Additionally, people donate because they feel guilty. And you see this happen at Church services all the time, when the Preacher gets up on the Pulpit and preaches a " Shameful Sermon " about, how you all should be ashamed of not lifting a finger to make this thing or that thing happen, and after all God had done for you. Then the people in the congregation will feel just terrible about having been blessed so much, while others are suffering through the least little bit of trouble. And so they give, they donate, they pledge, all out of shame.
And so I come back to you again, and ask you once more, why do you donate?. Why do you get involved in any cause, and why do you volunteer to help anybody?. Sure your reason might be different than the ones above, and it could be because you just feel so much for humanity like I do. It could be that if you had your last breath, you would give it to somebody else just so he or she could live. Or it could be because you feel that you have a duty to serve others, because in serving others then you become the greatest among them, like your God did. And so as you examine your heart and your motives today, then I join you in feeling great love for your brothers and sisters.
So join the cause of bettering and improving humanity. Because there is so much suffering, and there are so many needs in the world today that no matter what gifts you have inside of you,the world is ready to benefit from that. And so please give all that you can give of your time, your energy, your efforts, your expertise, your knowledge, your time, your volunteering and your heart. All because humanity can not do without you. James Dazouloute
