Charity is an important part of our world today. People that get stuck in an awful situation or need a little extra help benefit from it immensely. Volunteering just a little bit of time can make a huge difference in someone else's life and also impacts everyone involved. Have you ever volunteered? On the other end of the spectrum, have you ever needed help or support from someone and it wasn't there? If we didn't have charities and people that volunteered the world wouldn't be able to function as well as it does with the help of others and their kind hearts. Charity is beneficial to society because it helps some people financially, helps others appreciate what they have, and makes the community a better place.

Another way to help others out without spending any thing other than time is to be a 'babysitter” for free for an organization such as the YMCA when parents go work out and need some free time. A common idea that people do when it comes to donating is donating old clothes to a thrift store or second hand shop. It is great to get old clothes out of the closet while at the same time helping others in the area (Presnall 75).
Having business's know about a specific charity can be extremely beneficial. Ninety percent of people prefer to know which exact charity a business is supporting which will make them more likely to support and maybe even donate to the cause (Beesley par. 2). Business's that give to a charity that they support will also benefit them because it gives an opportunity to reach out and connect with others in the area. Having a business support a specific charity helps others become aware of the cause and they may even feel obligated to help out or donate. Through this it has been shown that employees become to get closer together and have a much better bond (Beesley par. 3).
