Everlasting Philanthropy

We know the ways that we can all support different charities. Donations are the most common way, as money can help a charity support their projects in a variety of different ways. But in times of austerity there are other ways you can support a charity. Time!

Time is one thing that is in my opinion much more precious than money. Once it’s gone, it’s gone – you can’t get it back. It is such a rare commodity that I am compelled to quote a line from a famous epic film:

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.”

The truth of the sentiment can be found in most faiths but is also pertinent to those without faith. Our time in this life is limited. Depending on your belief – there may be a life after this or not. But surely we owe it to ourselves to ensure that make the most of the time that we have. Giving your time to a cause that you believe can be fulfilling and worthy.

Sometimes events happen in our lives which make us have an introspective look at the way we spend our time. Whether you are working or playing, spend your time wisely so that you don’t regret the way you are spending it.

Does religion hold the values that all people should hold? What should the environment mean to us?
