Poverty is found in every country in the world. In the United States there are 14 to 16 percent living below the poverty line. There are many resources for people to tap into but there is never enough to go around. People cannot function in the United States by living on welfare alone. Welfare needs to be supplemented in some way in order for a person to be able to get by.
We need to remember to not only help the impoverished around the world, but help our citizens first. Donate your money and time to causes that help the citizens of the United States living below the poverty line because your tax dollars aren’t helping 100% of the problem.
Giving from the heart is what keeps this world alive.
