Charity has never been a huge part of my life. It was never anything stressed but it was nothing that went unnoticed either. With children of my own I want them to be a little more giving and understand how fortunate they are with the life they live. One good way to do that is to help them see that not everyone is as fortunate and that we can help them. I consider myself and my family blessed for the life that we live and have lived. Don’t get me wrong we all have our ups and downs but overall I have lived a comfortable life. It is only right to help those that have not.
