Do you need to donate money to help people with bills, or are you looking for assistance? Everyone has expenses to pay, therefore, why should you help someone else pay his? That is a valid question and the same can be raised by those who donate to earthquake relief or any other natural disaster relief. The fact is, donating money to help people with bills is just another form of given.
Why People Give
Some people give because they can get tax benefits whilst others donate because they feel it is their moral duty to do so. No matter what your reasons are, it is interesting to note that there are ways to help people pay their bills. The winter months are the most difficult for most families. They have to deal with the extra burned of paying their winter bills. For families or individuals on low income, receiving donations to pay bills is like manna from heaven.
Where to Donate
It is difficult to get a list of people needing help, which is why the best way to donate money is given directly to some charities. Here is a list of a few charities you can donate to:
American Veterans Relief Foundation
Salvation Army USA
Society of St. Vincent DePaul
Patient Advocate Foundation
There are many more charities that will accept your money and will provide some form of help for people in need. Not all charities help people with their bills. That said, some provide food stamps and other food related services to low-income families and individuals in needs. The money these families and individuals save on food can be put to good use by paying utility bills.
Who it Helps
The impact of donating to charities that help people with bills is that it can have direct effect on the future of those who receive the needed help. For example, if a family doesn’t have to take out a loan to pay heating bills during the critical winter months, it will help them to avoid the stress of being in debt. This can also have positive effects on families and might help to avoid situations where people put an end to their lives because of the pressure of keeping up with the cost of living.
That is why those who donate to charities are not only contributing to paying other people’s bills but also contributing to make their country and the world a better place
