Everyone should donate to charities and fundraisers
Debate Rounds (3)
- If I believe in the mission of the organization
- If they don't conflict with my religious or moral principals
- If I am not unhappy with the individual soliciting for the organization
Now, I have a personal endorsement for a particular charity or two? Well, Unicef has one of the worse overheads of any large charitable organization, yet another reason to choose to not donate.
The last point, "some human beings with as much right to live as you have are dying out there.". People have been dying for four-hundred thousand years. Charitable giving , in the form of money, can only be as old as the oldest monetary system. If we insist that giving money is mandatory as a part of compassion, is it also true that there was no compassion for 399,000 years?
Personally, I think that the creation of fundraisers and charity was considerable and compassionate, and we don't only need to give money right? People use the money to buy things they need, but we can also give them clothes and food. If it is religiously offensive to donate some food or clothes? Neighbors always help each other, sometimes go to each others' houses for meals or holidays. If it is religiously or politically offensive to accept or show help and kindness, based on my opinion, this world would be cold and cruel.
This might seem unprofessional to some, but I would like to thank you for debating on this subject... I always wanted to know some people's opinions on this subject, and this is my first debate, so thank you very much. I'm new to this organization or website, and I think this is a great way to test our debating and reasoning skills. I enjoyed this debate very much.
Over all of time, charity in the form of dollars spent is a fairly new concept. The self-aggrandizing, and shaming of those that don"t give, or don"t give as much as another, removes the altruistic nature of the act.
Charity exists with or without money. When our ancestors were hunter gathers, they showed charity to one-another. Potentially sometime in our future when money is no longer a concept, charity will exist still.
I too am very new to the site, this will be the first completed debate. I appreciate this one, and hope more will follow.
