Local Charities in the South to Reach Out for Your Christmas Gift Giving

By: Ali Carandang

Charity is the behavior of unconditionally widening kindness and love to others. It is a conscious act, but the choice is made by the core, without desiring a reward. When charity is performed nobly, it is yet another act in which an individual gives but receives nothing in return. Making a charitable contribution to a local charity near your house and lot in Cavite is a great way to lift your spirits. Knowing you’re assisting others is extremely empowering, and can leave you feeling more fulfilled and happier. Making a charitable donation has been linked to higher activity in the part of the brain that registers pleasure, proving that, as the old adage goes, it is far superior to give than to receive.

Charity is more than gift giving, you can express your care through raising money, supporting organizations, and helping the community to make a better world for yourself, your families, and every people around us. Charity is not only for people but also for our friends in the wildlife, our animals need support as well from the people as animal cruelty has been rampant nowadays. Providing shelter and food, adoption, and protecting our animals are just a few aspects in which we can be involved.

Christmas is one of the most wonderful times of the year because it brings families and friends together and gives much of the required time to reflect and give thanks for all of the wonderful things we have in our lives. Plus, it’s the ideal reason to throw a grand party! Regardless, it must never be neglected that among the numerous people who celebrate with their families and behind the advertisements for the “perfect” family Christmas, there are numerous individuals for whom Christmas will not be as delightful.
