Charity

Its Charity Tuesday on Twitter. There are Charities like and The British Red Cross, Help For Heroes, Dogs Trust and various others and they are great causes to support and help.

Then there is being Charitable. In my opinion being charitable does not just mean donating money to a Charity. Being charitable is being kind, understanding, co-operative and showing respect and empathy towards others. They don't necessarily have to be less fortunate people than you... just people like you and me working hard at whatever it is that they do.

I am increasingly finding that the charitable spirit is disappearing amongst a lot of people I come across. We are increasing becoming a society of "I want" but "I can't be bothered giving back unless there is something in it for me" Selfish? Stressed? Too Busy? I don't know. But I just find it very sad.
