I think it is important to help others with a hand-up from time to time. It can be done through money, time, influence or any combination of the three. Whatever works best for you, I just urge you to give back to your community or just directly help someone in need. You’ll feel great because of it and you just might learn something along the way. It’s not about doing more than someone else. If you can only raise five dollars or you can raise five thousand dollars; if you only have one hour or you have a whole day; all that matters is maximising YOUR resources to the greatest benefit.
I have been fortunate enough to earn enough money to give some to many worthy causes, I’ve been in control of my time to allow me to donate it to many and I have developed a worldwide network of great friends to be able to influence my network and resources to make a difference in the lives of others. Through this I have grown in more ways than I could have ever imagined. I’ve met so many amazing people, been involved in projects I would never have thought I would. So cool!
