STEEM CHARITIES: Using Steem To Create A "Perfect" World That Rewards Good People!

in charity •  9 months ago

Hello Steemians,
What is charity? Charity is defined as;

1- an organization set up to provide help and raise money for those in need.

Eg. "the charity provides practical help for homeless people"

2- the voluntary giving of help, typically in the form of money, to those in need.

Eg. "the care of the poor must not be left to private charity".

You are free to pick-your-poison among these definitions. The basic underlining factor in them all is

"help for the poor".

Charity is supposed to be a big part of the society we live in. Charity gives but is never supposed to take. Charity is mostly affiliated with NGO's without government interference. Ordinary citizens use their hard-earned cash to help the poor, sick and those in need around them.

Charity is a virtue. Though not possessed by many, most people can genuinely feel something within when they see people that really need help getting it. Why? Because we are human. And humans must exhibit humane emotions no matter how much the heart has been hardened.

The steem blockchain makes it particularly easy to distribute charity across the globe. No need for Out Of Pocket Expenditure (OOPE). All you have to do is click some buttons on a captioned blog post and you are already feeding a child in Africa or helping a poor widow in Asia or paying for the Kidney transplant of a renal patient in America.

No matter where you are all over the world, you can help bring to reality the vision of healing, touching lives and spreading love. No matter your socio-economic class, there's always someone you are better than. Now you have the power of steem on your side. Now you can truly help people.

ANother beauty of this sort of charity is that you too may get rewarded. For example, I have seen people using their Out-Of-Wallet-Expenditure to run charity and also get a replacement. Someone like @Ackza, @Greenman and @Surfyogi has a way of going into the streets and giving to the poor. They similarly get replenished when they make a post about it.

@Ackza also has a lot of Ghanaians under his wings on this path of charity. He has been supporting someone like @Steem4DPoor who goes out to feed Indegent African Students. He also supports @McSamm who does medical outreaches and @Tj4Real, @RichForever among others.

About 2 days ago, @Sircork similarly made a post here about a possibly Mosquito-infested pool of water in a slum in Nigeria. It was quite touching seeing that pool of water in my own country. The dirty gutter depicted was already full of blue-greenish algae. I'm sure that many larvae and pupae of mosquitos will be breeding there waiting for the right time to infect people with Malaria.

With projects like @YouAreHOPE which hopes to provide Help, Opportunity, Purpose & Empowerment to the poor all over the world. He has his HOPEful Foot Soldiers who do a great deal of work to deliver seeds, shoes, books, school bags and money to those that need it most.

I have seen many posts from @Reko and his Gift Economy Ideology. I have seen pictures of him trying to save good food that has been wasted by people (the-haves) from the waste bins in the streets. I have seen first hand where he polished these foods, packaged them and shared them to other people who really need them (the have-nots).

The world is really not fair. While some have excess clothing, bouquet dinning rooms and large houses they can't occupy, on the other end of the spectrum, many are seeking just crumbs from the table of the masters but even that they don't have. STOP WASTING FOOD!

I was really touched when I saw @Stellabelle delegate SP to @Steem4dPoor just for his good deeds. That's the power of giving at work. @Bleepcoin, @Pennsif and @yehey and @guiltyparties have similarly been seen doing these sort of reachout via their upvotes on such posts.

@Stach which is run by @Ejemai similarly does alot of outreaches. For example he was in an orphanage at Ibadan yesterday just for Charity sake. Valentine's day should be a day to show love to those who need it most. I was also opportuned to support @Fetch run by @AlisonUdeme, @GiftEssiet & @Bundis10 as we went to an orphanage home in Uyo. @Samstickkz is similarly so much interested in Charity and always motivates the @steemit-uyo community to do same.

I won't forget @Hopebanks run by @Hopehuggs. I will also remember @steemhelpinghands which recently ran a campaign to help a child with hydrocephalus to get treated (probably a VP Shunt). I also saw the Pen-A-Child Initiative by @spiritwalker to help kids get access to useful education.

Permit me to conclude with my own project - @AIR-CLINIC - which is essentially a grand gesture in medical charity. We have set up the first truly free healthcare facility on the steem blockchain. My team and I spend hours and hours of our days using our skills and knowledge to heal the world.

Food For Thought: Will the world ever get completely healed?

My drive to see people truly happy has led me to create our outreach foundation. By that means, we were able to reach out to high school kids for Cancer Awareness Campaigns. I still love this picture below because it captures the essence of what we do. If I'm a medical doctor, then I shold inspire more kids to be like me someday.

All these are ways of @promo-steem -ing. When you take these projects off the blockchain, and do something nice for someone, they will definitely want to know where and how the money comes from. And then you point them to Steem. I just love being a @steem-ambassador coz it feels so good.

I still believe that...

Impossible Is Nothing!



I Remain me, my mouth & eye @nairadaddy aka SteemDaddy. My aim is to leave you better than I find you everyday!

Proudly A...

You're most welcome

A great post that is very informative. I, being new to steemit, was not aware of these charitable activities and group here. I am definitely going to save this post and refer to it when I am capable of participating. Blessings to you for this good work.

This is probably a stupid question, but how do I join?

Helping poor and needy this is what humanity is, this thing differentiates us from animals. Using steemit as a platform for such work can be very useful. Keep on going.

Exactly @mumin007,
the essence is to help as much as we can!

Truly you are doing a great work

Thanks for underlining the importance of charity on the Steem blockchain! I couldn't agree more.

Cheers, Marly -

Thank you @surfermarly,
I'll check out that project right now.
It sounds beautiful.
Cheers!

Together we can make the change we want. God bless everyone trying to help another person though charity. Every love we show counts. Every money we spend count.

Your Posts are golden.

Yeah. I think writing down might have its advantages as well as disadvantages too.

When writing, you might not really get to pit down everything in the head.
But then in a video or an audio, u can get to say everything that comes to the mind.
But currently, I do more of writing cuz I'm not all that pretty to appear on a video. Lol.

Thanks for sharing @ nairadaddy

This is a really lovely post. It's inspiring, motivating and challenging for us, steemians to contribute back to our various communities the best we can. I wish I had a lot of steem power because I really would have given this post my 100%, I still would with my low SP. Thanks for this lovely post @nairadaddy, you are really adding more value to Steemians and the world at large.

This is terrific.... Kip it up

This is absolutely wonderful. Charity is love, if all should join hands in these good world, we can make it better to the best. You ae doing great, thumbs up.

Thank you for your effort trying to eradicate poverty and also using your name to provide for the poor because really, the poor goes through a lot and suffer in silence too. I did a charity project on Valentine's Day and it was awesome and at the same time, I saw that feelings of needing and wanting. So for you to bee on this path of helping, I really commend you for the good work and may heaven reward you more.

Am more than happy to see you share this...it is of this same reason I would find my way at the Kumasi Orphanage to do a donation to the needy...charity comes with lots of blessings @nairadaddy ..steem has really powered this initiative and steemit needs to be shown to the whole Ghanaian community and the world at large..thanks to you too @chris4210 for your support and love for this project..it feels good seeing you around sir
