A money donation is called upon around the whole country for the deadly nature disater--earthquake took place at May,12th. Everyone is making his efforts to relieve and help people out of the disater.I donated 100,while the others in my office submit 500.That is to say, my donation is four times less than theirs. People like to talk about the number of money donated.Often they said it is shameful to donate so little money.Though they do not say me,I feel a bit of comfortlessness. I don't think the one donate a large number of money is greater than the one not.Money donation just represents a piece of best wishes with nothing to do with money itself.It is right no matter how less money people donate. 100 is really a small number,but I have tried my best,and it is upon my present capability,isn't it? So have you donated money to the disater people before? and do you think hardly about how many money you will donate?

it doesnt matter if you donate less money in disaster, what matters most is that you heartily give it with no strings attached.as long as it is your desire to donate,you dont think of what others might say about your donation, after all, God will reward those who have a clean heart.

Yes,you are right.But at first I felt rather uncomfortable about their accusement.I do think I show my concern to the quake victims whole-heartedly,that has nothing to do with the money. Let's mourn for them,good luck in paradise!

Absolutely not, you needn't be shameful, you showed your care and did your best, that's enough. There're some people born to be rich, they may have a wealthy background, they can stand the big sum. While they are others, they themselves still need others' help. The kind of competition is abnormal. You don't have to ba shame so long as you tried your best. One CNY is also ok if i have no money, i can also donate nothing or maybe blood instead of money. Not all the people think like that, i believe it's only a very small number will consider it shame. Let them think what they think. We can't control people's thoughts, huh? I donated this morning, to my best. And i'm glad i extend my care to disaster-hit area. Good luck to China. Enjoy life

Thank you so much. At first,I don't think it so hard after hearing someone's words saying "you should donate nothing rathen than so little amount".I am deeply hurted. Yes,I didn't donate 500 but only 100,that doesn't mean I have no sympathy.Instead,as long as I do it no matter how many,I think I am making contribution to the disaster-stricken people. I pray for those people lost their families in the unmerciful earthquake.
