"It is better to give than to receive."I know I say this a lot, but it is my main motivation in life to live this principle in my daily life and to teach this principle to my girl. I'm not exaggerating when I say my family has been living below the poverty line for the last 2 years. I have to get creative in finding ways to give when I don't have any disposable income to donate. So I find time to volunteer- my time is just as precious as my money, so is transferable as currency in my opinion. Another way to give back to my community is to donate gently used clothing and household items to local churches and community centers.
For those that are able to donate money and want to see it go to practical items that promote survival in needy children. Unicef is a worthy (non-governmental) organization with 50 years experience in reaching out to children all over the world.
