With so much demand on our spare cash from charities, what charities will motivate you to give today?
It seems that we are under constant bombardment from charitable organisations these days. It goes without saying that, in times of financial hardship, charities suffer. And yet there are so many genuine and worthwhile causes out there that tug at our heart-strings and pull us to consider giving something….
And it doesn’t have to be a charity campaign that gets my attention. There are so many news stories these days that tell of a natural disaster, war zone, or famine area. AND THOSE PICTURES. They shout loudly to the compassionate side of me.
But I can’t give to everything, and I have limited resources. So I have to make wise choices as to who gets my money.
What about you? How do you feel when those newsreels start streaming from your TV? What is your immediate reaction?

Today, the charity that motivates me is Living Waters. Found all over the world, this charity provides discipleship and relationship programmes to all churches of all denominations. Aimed at those people who recognise that they live a broken life, and are not living a fulfilled life that is possible with God, Living Waters provides programmes and facilitates prayer and ministry to those wanting to move on in their relationship with God and with others.
But there are others out there that get my attention, who are involved with:
- Human Trafficking
- Debt and Injustice (local and global)
- Feeding and supporting local homeless and families below the poverty line
So again, I ask you the question “What charity motivates you?” I’m looking forward to reading your comments and responding.
Talk to you soon.
