Do Not Wait Until You Are A Billionaire To Be Generous

by Pam on December 23, 2010

Christmas is a time of giving, and it is intriguing to read the various articles that have been written about the famous billionaires who are giving so much of their wealth to charities.  Examples include Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg as well as George Lucas.  Bill Gates and Warren Buffet started a Giving Pledge and many billionaires have joined in and the result is extreme generosity.

It just goes to show that if the wealthy are willing to share their wealth with others, the world can definitely be a better place.  After all, they won’t be able to take their money with them so they might as well brighten someone else’s day with it while they can.

Although most of us are far from millionaires, let alone billionaires, we too can contribute to our communities and help out charities that we care about.  We may feel our contributions are not significant, but every little bit helps.

There are so many great causes out there.  As you give to family and friends this Christmas, consider also donating to a local charity or food bank.  If you have people on your Christmas list who really don’t need anything at all, consider donating to a charity on their behalf instead.  This will be a more meaningful gift than any doodad.
