Why I find #NoJoy anymore in #TheJoyOfGiving mission I founded 15 years ago? kindly do read the piece and share it forward ( alongwith the attached article 👇to spread the message of what The Real Joy Of Giving truly means so that people can understand and stop practicing it superficially.
After conceptualising and creating #TheJoyOfGiving mission in 2002, I am disappointed and distressed and truly find NO JOY in the way the #movement has been reduced to giving a little money in THE JOY OF GIVING WEEK or ON GIVING TUESDAY to a child’s face promoted by some SMART and SHREWD FUNDRAISING organisation. Or organisations that encourage people to give #USEDCLOTHES and #OLDNEWSPAPERS which are then sold by these organisations for personal profit.
I have always said that it is not mindless, arrogant charity, but humble mindful social justice that is wanting in our world, where people do not just give money as a FEEL GOOD FACTOR or as a GUILT WASHING STATION but get involved with HEAD, HANDS and HEART to truly make a difference by GIVING TIME , EFFORT AND INVOLVEMENT.
