Have you dreamed of starting a charity foundation?

With the things i see on my surrounding, with poor kids begging for money and asking even small amount just to fill their hungry stomach, i would dream of having lots of money and starting my own foundation. in my dream, i would be able to home them in one nice shelter house where they will be fed and they will get the right medical attention and have proper education and give them proper foundation so they can find work they wanted so that they can build their own lives. and start their own family and in a way can help other people too. Sometimes i would dream of having a shelter house for the elderly caring for those who are too sick to care for them selves and rescuing them from poverty and help them a healthy body as much as possible and extend their lifespan. and make their last chapter of their lives happy as much as possible. but it seems it is really quite difficult to accomplish such a goal as it involves too much money. But i just feel sorry for those people who have not yet find any one who can help them. Hopefully some organizations out there will be able to find their situation and help them live better lives.

Actually, that's a part of my dream that someday i could help everybody who suffered from pain and hunger not just in our country but all over the world. I cannot imagine how happy i am if that would come true. But sad to say now, i also work for me and my family and i got only small chance to help others.

i think that we can still make a big difference even if we can help a big number of people. we can start with some people around us who we think we can help. if all people has this attitude i think that we don't need big charities to solve the problem of poverty and homelessness. if we all do our small part then no one will be in need.

I don’t think I will start a charity foundation by myself, although I should agree it’s very meaningful thing. I think I need huge money to do things like that. I don’t think I can afford it. However I do have a few favourite charity foundations I want to continue to support them. If one day I really have money I might to start an education foundation to help children from poor family to develop their study. I think supporting education is a good way to contribute the society.

i think that the charity foundation we have is good enough. and i feel that they are not doing enough. cause i see that many foundation lack funds and so they are not able to help much. like if they give away goods. they just instant noodles, sardines, rice and bread and etc. i don't think that will help a lot.

Oh my gosh!! Yes!! Yes!! All the time I think about owning and running a cat sanctuary. I would just love to take in all cats from all over the world and let them live out their lives in my sanctuary and maybe even find homes for them. I'd have to screen every person to be sure they went to a good home but it would be well worth it! I'd have volunteers to help me. It's a dream of mine but it'll most likely won't become a reality because it takes a lot of funds to build a huge huge shelter for them all and a lot of ground for them to run and play and funds are really hard to come by. But I can still dream, right?

yes cats really need to find a good home and carers, i have not thought of that one though before. but i am sure if i can add that to my list of dreams i want to accomplish. but i will definitely start with helping off first cause if people themselves here can't have a decent life how can they feed and care for cats well.
