What would you do for others if you had the Kardashian's money?
Let's just pretend you had the amount of money that the Kardashians have . . . so what would you do for others with that amount of money? Remember it is for others, not yourself. Thanks for answering.
Probably donate it to scholarships. If someone wants to better themselves through education, I'd like to be able to make sure they aren't punished for it.
10% to charities. Each month would be a new charity so the money goes to help a variety of people in need.
First, I believe in tithing, so 10 percent of ANY money received would go to God.
Second I am an animal lover.
I also have deep compassion for homeless people I see on the street.
When on vacation recently, I saw a homeless man on the street, asleep, leaning against a lamp post...in his arms was a little dog. A second little dog lay on its side below the man's feet. My daughter and I were racing by, as we had a tour, so I could not stop.
I have not been able to get that image out of my mind. I added that man and his pets to my prayer list.
That being said, I would use the money to build a shelter for homeless people AND also build an animal shelter. I would hire people for pay to work at both places...to cook food, provide bedding for both homeless people and animals.
They would have to be compassionate loving people.
The other day, I was on my walk and decided to take a different route, which I NEVER do.
I spotted an injured chipmunk in the middle of the road. It was curled up like in a ball...blinking its eyes. I gently picked it up and I carried it to the woods. The animal rested its left paw on my thumb and laid its head on my hands, shutting its eyes to rest. I placed it gently by a big tree under a bush. It then started to walk a little. It broke my heart...but I KNOW God had me take that different route...
I said to my friend, Jackie, WHY does God do this to me? I get SO heartbroken with animals! She said, "God did it because He knew you would not walk by that injured animal, that you would save it from being run over by a car."
(We already have rescued 2 cats in the past... we have an orphan and a stray living with us).
Anyway, that is what I would do if I had that kind of money. I have no interest in diamonds, yachts, or partying.
Every homeless person I have helped along the way, I always ask them their name, and I place them on my prayer list.
I do everything I can do, then I pray for them, and I put them in God's hands.
Thank you for a very thought provoking question.
Oh, my goodness, SPARKLEA!!!! SPARKLEA for President!!! God bless your precious loving heart for the downtrodden and for His little creatures. Your answer has brought tears to my eyes, and actually tears of joy, as I praise Him for you dear one.
Faith, THANK YOU SO MUCH. I am overwhelmed! Tried to email you, but it failed.
Oh, it is I who is overwhelmed with your profound comment! I wish they would allow more space to write a longer comment, but I ran out of room! I can see our sweet Lord God saying, well done my good and faithful servant : ) Hugs and love to you!
Faith , this is a great question that I am sure many people will give differing opions and thoughts of how they try to help. Myself ,since i am into education right now ..I see the need to bring an awareness to the importance of early childhood education, not in the sense of overall education but a whole study incorporating the arts into a fundamental teaching of the basics.
One of the most important arts that we have lost is the art of the written word , by using the creative abilities of young students to express their identities through writing, we allow them to find their true self. this will need a return to the study of making reading an integal part... which has been lost due to the schools trying to move to a progressive course of learning into the system of education, neglecting the basics.
Of course I would then donate to all the different organizations that truly help the poor ,, the homeless especially which should not exist in America..considering all the wealth the country posseses, after vetting them ( of course).
If you help the human spirit, you help the individual too, by lifting up and showing them that God is inside of all of us and he will listen if you dedicate yourself to his teachings not only in thought but by actions also.
If I was choosing what charity to give my money to it would be the Fistula hospitals in third world countries. These are hospitals that basically house women for an untold amount of time because their bladders leak non-stop from being forced to have children too young. The bodies of these young girls aren't developed enough to carry babies, let alone deliver them.
Hello lisasuniquevoice, thank you so much for answering. Wow, I have never heard of such, and what a wonderful ministry no doubt to help those poor women!!! Oh my goodness, I am glad there is such Fistula hospitals!
I am going to look into how they're raising money for the Fistula hospitals there to help those young girls.
Bless you dear one!!! Please share what you find out! Thanks so much. This is very interesting to me.
I would give it to charities that support people with mental illnesses. I might also donate some to the psychiatric hospitals, supplying them with the funds for different art therapy programs and entertainment.
I would give to charities such as Autism foundations and education programs to assist people who care for autistic children. This would not be my only charity but one thing I wouldn't do is publicise what I have given and to who. Unlike the Kardashians, I do not believe in telling the whole world about my life.
That is wonderful to help with Austism and other charities! Thank you so much for saying that about to NOT publicize what you have given!!! Bravo to you dear heart!!! Yes, we are to do it without glory to ourselves! You know it!

With the recession going on, I have noticed several new cardboard signs asking for food, money or gas. How do you distinguish the real from the fake, and what should you do to help them?

I've been in San Francisco this weekend, where the homeless population is pretty high compared to that of other cities. I've noticed that the situation is not as bad as it has been the previous times I've been here, which is a surprise, given the economy. Not so many sleeping downtown,...
