Lets take a look at the word "donate" and put it into context. When we think of the word "donate", we think of voluntarily giving to others - whether it be our time, money or assistance, "donating" in essence, is something that is not forced on the individual.
But why should you donate to a particular cause? Why even go the extra mile to be "that one" that gives money to the less fortunate?
Here are just a few reasons why you should donate to charity.
  1. Its just the right thing to do because your going out of your way to lend a helping hand - and on top of that, it can help you within your career. Nowadays, jobs don't just look at the "what and where", being where you worked and what your job was, they also look at the "who and why", who did you help or assist and why did you decide to do it.
  2. It lets others know that you're not an individual that disregards the existence of anyone else in the world who needs your help.
  3. Having a good self-conscience is part of this....
and there are other factors you can think of like the fact it is tax deductible & totally appreciated.       
We realize that times are hard for many of you, but any contribution will help the Clinic, the Clinicians and the children. They are always in need of new teaching materials and supplies.
