We all here that giving to charity is a good Samaritan�s deed. Sadly, people are not entirely aware of why they are doing charity work. Some would even do it for building their image or for some other reason to get attention and commendations for their supposed efforts. However, it has been forgotten that charities are done for the purpose of lending a helping hand without expecting anything in return. The only probable return is the feeling of happiness where a person is able to contribute his way towards actually helping people in need of it.
Charity work should always come from the heart and not the mind. Taking into consideration that people have the excess funds and resources to donate and help people who have misfortunes in their means of living is something that will depend on the actual purpose for helping them out. Charity and donation should be done with an open heart, the reward of which is the tingling feeling we all feel inside for contributing to a worthy cause.
