Short Essay on Charity

Charities have helped people around the world for years. They work to help people who are less fortunate than others and provide a way for the needy to ask for help. These organizations provide ways to raise money, help people who have been in natural disasters, and give help to starving children all over the world. There are even charities that help for incurable diseases, such as AIDS or cancer.

The history of charity started in 2500 BCE when the ancient Hebrews used a mandatory tax or tithe to benefit the poor. Since then there have been many different causes created to help people in their greatest time of need. Countries around the world have been inspired to have charities ever since the very first charitable cause by the Hebrews. With the passing years, charities have grown to have a different meaning for different people. The need of people around the world is a real fight, but unfortunately only some take it serious. There are people who are truly wanting to end problems like world hunger, poverty, and disease, but the greed of few people will not let it happen.

For many countries, people will never know what it is like to not have to worry about being hungry or sick. However, this is why it is important to have charities and to give help to those who need it the most. Even if there are those charities that want nothing more than to help exploit and embarrass the needy, it is still important to give to the less fortunate. The world without charities would be even more unbearable, than what it already is. Crime would be even higher and lives all over the world would be even more affected. There may be a need for those less fortunate, but without charities, many people would lose faith in living.
