If Mark Zuckerberg Can Do It Then So Can You

Born a Zuckerberg, daughter of Mark..wow what a lucky young lady she will be, and as birthday celebrations go this one will take some beating. Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook (for all those living a disconnected life) announced on #GivingTuesday he would give away £30 billion to celebrate her birth and help good causes (Robin Ash writes)

Gandhi Quote Louise HuntWhat did you do to announce the arrival of your offspring? well, mine was a pint at our local (when I got over the shock of giving birth. If you are inspired to follow suit but don’t have the spare billion or so stashed away you can still make a difference.

Social Media make it so easy for us to part with our cash. It’s quite unnerving to say the least but once the money has been pledged the effects can be enormous, not only for the beneficiary but for the benefactor. Snapdonate is an image recognition app that allows you to take a photo of a logo the app recognises the charity allowing you to donate any amount over £2.

Regardless of how much income each person made, those who spent money on other reported greater happiness – Mark Zuckerberg must be euphoric.

Once again “size doesn’t matter” it’s what or who it’s spent on that’s important.

If Mark Zuckerberg can do it then so can you – Here’s how..

According to life.gaiam.com (your guide to a better living) there are 5 Reasons to Donate:

  1.  It may improve your sense of well-being – the act of helping other in needs can give you a sense of purpose and inner satisfaction
  2. Your spiritual conviction can strengthen your spiritual life – Selfless giving is key to many spiritual and religious systems and can bring a sense of inner peace.
  3. Supporting a cause can help keep you informed of social injustice – People tend to research issues connecting to organisations before donating. As a result, you become educated and even passionate about social injustices around the world.
  4. Volunteering results in physical and social benefits – After the financial donation you may then become inspired to get more involved by giving your time and energy to a project, reaping the physical, mental and spiritual benefits from your labour.
  5. Taxable Deduction – not only is the money you give deductible, so are the travel expenses, parking costs, even convention and event fees.

Once again “size doesn’t matter” it’s what or who it’s spent on that’s important.

Technology allows us to help even if we do not own a single Facebook share. The website wegive.io posts a video you, each view triggers a contribution from a company. The donation costs you nothing and so far it has helped villagers in Madagascar plant 10,000 trees. Gift aid can also make your money go even further.
