You don't realize how many people around the world need your help until there standing in front of you. Since it's the holiday season, everyone's buying each other gifts and presents and we give our last penny to the guy ringing the bell standing outside the grocery store or the children's orphanage box at the gas station. But we never really stop to think about how there are 100 million homeless people around the world and 40 percent live below the poverty line. We don't stop to think about how a pair of shoes could change a kids life in India. We spend so much time in our world that we miss the fact that there waiting for us to help them.
Remember when you were a little kid and something so simple like a toy car or bouncy ball made you so happy? Think of this aspect as the rest of the world looking at us. We have so much and we don't even realize it, we just walk by the homeless everyday like no one sees them, like they're not sitting there like they're not human and I hate it. As humans, we all have a duty to help each other and we can't do that by ignoring each other.
This season is all about giving to our friends and our families but don't forget the people on the street or the people around the world that could really use that generosity. It's something so simple as giving a sweater you don't even wear anymore or buying a homeless man a pair of socks or even giving towards an organization that's already helping people. There's always something you can do or there's always something that we can do to give, even if it's with our last penny.
