There are so many in the haves who have such tendency.when a celebrity do such a thing it attracts even common people to toe in line.In a recent actor Surya said" I feel guilty to earn so much money when people with more hard work earn paltry sum" and he has created a trust through which he is sponsoring many good deeds.

Ms. Shintz thanks for providing this info of John Abraham......It is very good that most of our Bollywood celeb are providing some type of help to our society by
1. raising fund for soceity-welfare organizations,
2. adopting child(rens)
3. sponsoring few childs by providing financial & moral support
4. working on behalf of some orphan age/ old age homes.....etc etc...

My point is, WE ALL CAN & SHOULD DO THE SAME AT OUR SURROUNDINGS.....We can't spread light like SUN, but if we try, we can do to a little extent like a small lamp who spread light at a small hut at dark night......

I believe, most of us are RICH & POWERFUL either by intelligence or by wealth or by physical strength or by having spare time......to provide help to others at our surroundings. At weekends I try to spend some time with few people who are living in a semi-slam area....Many of my doctor friends are doing the same by free health checkup at their free time....

A year back, I had attended a speech delivered by Magsaysay award winner, Rajendar Singh during an enterprising spirit development seminar conducted by ADRI. It was quite inspiring speech by the person who changed the lives of lakhs of people in Rajasthan and gave many more a hope to make a start on their own. He had emphasized on one special point which was about the need of a vibrant civic movement independent of the government..He told the audiences that particular development paths and cultures can influence civic-activism. The example you gave in your question is just a form o0f that civic activitism he talked about. If the persons who are privileged enough to help others understand that their small hand of help can not only change the life of many but also their own, they will definitely come out on their own. Government should motivate such people through special awards and tax rebates and make them understand that even though such activities are self sustaining, it plays a bigg ...more

When we contribute or donate, we just not pave the way for those sufferers to have a future of hope and promise but also everyone wins, the children - the families - the community!

By sponsoring with a charity donation we will feel a certain warm feeling of satisfaction when we will see that someone who had no hope is now grown-up and happy thanks to our help.

Whether we choose to give money, gifts, a day or an hour, it's energy and time well spent. It is no small task to be taken lightly, because we hold in our dedication the ability to change lives, including our own.
