Reasons Why We Support the Boys and Girls Denver Charity

Philanthropy should be on the minds of everyone. The motivation should be to better the lives of others. I hear people making complaints about the use of their tax dollars to support causes they do not want to support. They see faults in social service programs. I do not look at things that way, but I can understand frustrations of some. However, if you are not happy with social programs, then do something to support a charity you can be happy with. My wife and I support a Denver charity for young boys and girls to help give them a better life.

I was talking to a friend of mine once who recounted a story of her seeing a woman in a grocery line paying with food stamps. She said the woman was dressed better than her and had better food than what she was buying. Perceptions like that, regardless of any facts, can sour people on public social services. However, what is to stop you from taking control and giving to a charity you fully believe in? I asked my friend about that, and she did not have an answer. Then, out of the blue, she comes to me and asks about the Denver charity my wife and I support. She decided to help improve the lives of children to help them not have to be on welfare when they grow up rather than just complaining about how she perceived public social programs were using her money.

It is one thing to get upset about something, and it is a whole other thing to actually take steps to make a positive change. We believe that intervening in the young lives of those who have less can make a difference in how they can support themselves when they become adults. As people, we need to stop things from falling apart and getting worse. We need to build each other up and make things better.
