We not only can make, but also can give
I recently followed a new WA member who is primarily involved in humane activities in improving the wellbeing of the members of vulnerable segment in the developing countries in Asia.His work triggered my interest to follow further.
I suggested to him that what he is doing can be a niche.However, he seems to be a bit hesitate to use it as a niche because of a general understanding and common goal in WA community that we’re all in WA for making money.
On the front of “making money”, I agree that this is true.But if we look into it in a little bit wider angle, volunteers working with charitable or humane organizations also need money to carry out the work towards their goal.It is no difference from majority of the WA members joining and collaborating in WA to make money for improving our life.The only difference is whether it is for self or for others.
And I believe it is also human instinct to help others, we all need brotherhood of human to make our society caring an better for living.There are many in the world who are willing to give and to devote for the others in need.But many of us need someone to make us known of the opportunities to help others in need.
Hence I think WA is not just for prevailing individual motive of making money and improving life, but also applicable for moral objective in helping poor people.
To give is more fortunate than to receive.
I welcome any thoughts on this.
