IAM Group Ltd
Those in NEED
People always ask us how we at IAM Group Ltd. find all the charity groups that we partner with and know which one is legit. My response is standard. I would say, we Google them and call their number, really get to know them and know if they are true. I know, I am sounding so casual when the thing we do shouldn’t. I mean, it should be from the heart, what we are doing and in saying that we google them would mean we are not serious in this. Well, in all fairness, it’s not really how we do things. The way I answer is just because it seems that the people asking it doubt the way we work things and it really seethes me to answer them nicely. For me, it doesn’t matter as long as we can help out.
Many of us people look up to big charity foundations, thinking that we cannot extend our help because we do not have much and those kind of foundation have people and rich volunteers to do the task because they can afford it. Having those thoughts are in fact, for me, an excuse to do your share of charity. Asking us in IAM Group Limited on how we find our charity also gives the impression that if you are to partner with us, you have to secure that your money will go to a worthy cause. Harsh as it may sound, there are really a lot of people who think of it that way.
What is charity? And to whom should we really extend it though? Do we think that if we do not have enough, it already means we cannot give out? Or if we have enough, do we think that it should be worthy to give?
“We are surrounded by those in need of our kindness. We are the Lord’s hands here upon the earth, with the mandate to serve His children.” As said by one of our friends from Yokohama, Japan. These kind words, saying that we do not have to look up to big charity cases to help, should be enough to weigh our thoughts again and reconsider.
If you do not have enough, can’t you extend a portion of yourself to a sad friend who needs comfort? That is charity. If you have much, can’t you help a little kid go through college if you do not trust big charity companies? That is also charity.
See, it does not matter how we do our share of charity. What matters is, we can lend a helping hand, in cash, kind or willing heart to those who are in need.
