Charity is a widely misconstrued term. A lot of people seem to think it’s only about sympathy and donation.
Some also happen to attach negative connotations to the term. Like when you hear someone yell “I don’t need your charity”; goes on to show that most of the time, it is associated with ‘throwing money away at something that catches your fancy’, maybe without expecting something in return.
                The literal meaning seems to have been forgotten. Charity is something more than just giving money. It is a benevolent, noble gesture. It is about sharing your blessings with the not-so-fortunate, telling them you care that they exist. Showing them that you are there to help and you will in some way contribute to make their life better.
It is the provision of constant encouragement and empowerment to the weak and destitute. It is about telling them, “Hey, you can make it. You are not limited by your circumstances. You have what it takes to make it,” by providing the necessary resources that will be adequate for them to achieve their goals and dreams.

In this day and age, most of that boils down to funding because all other activities need some sort of financial help. But sometimes, if you don’t have the financial upper hand, it does not have to be about money, it could be giving away what you know you don’t need but the others do. Or even a simple prayer. The world is a better place when you share and care. For everyone.  Including you.
