Giving back to the community!

Giving to People Who Give
In this video it shows how important it is to give back to the community. This guy does an experiment and everyone who gives him any spare change or even take the time to pray for them he gives them $20. He is showing that with giving back or offering there is always good karma and good consequences.

The importance of giving back to the community.

Giving back should not only be done to benefit you. You may not understand what someone else is going through so just simply helping them out by building something, volunteering is a big step in helping out. While some people are going out buying $9 coffee every morning while some people struggle to find a meal for the day or a comfortable to rest their head.

Supporting people with sight loss

The Braille Institute in San Diego helps the community out in many ways, one way is supporting people with sight loss. They have served thousands of people who can't afford high cost treatment or therapy. With the help of their volunteers they try to teach people new ways to do things they love. They also introduce their clients to electronics such as iPad's, apps, and much more technology that's proven to be very helpful to people with sight loss.
Joining the millions of Americans who volunteer to feed the homeless, contributing to clothing drives, food drives and donating to poverty-fighting charities may be the best act of kindness you may do. But is giving enough? Although giving to the community is very helpful they may need more that. They need justice. Women, racial minorities, the poor, religious and ethnic minorities and L.G.B.T. are just not receiving enough job opportunities and without them being able to get jobs is why it's so good to give to the community, but we also need equality.

Reasons giving back to the community is good.

1. Develop new skills - Gaining skills, knowledge and expertise are common side effects of volunteering in your community.

2. Social opportunities - Loneliness and boredom are common among retirees, students, and people who recently move into a new city/neighborhood. Volunteering can relieve a sense of social isolation.

3. Give back to your community - Doing something for the community you live in and returning the favor to those who have helped you are strong motivators. Everyone, rich or poor, takes from society, and volunteering is one way to show a sense of appreciation

4. Boost your self-esteem - Many volunteers experience a sense of increased self-esteem and greater self-worth. Helping others makes you feel good about yourself, because you’re doing something for someone that they couldn’t do for themselves.

5. Gain a new perspective - Volunteering can offer a new perspective—seeing people who are worse off than you are, yet still hanging in there, can help you see your life in a whole new light.
