Resources -- Help Others & Find the Assistance You Need
are many organizations out there created to help others in need -- they
may be funded by concerned living individuals, from assets left in
wills by those who have passed away and wish to leave a legacy for
others, by companies and other organizations that otherwise would be
taxed on the money if they don't give it away, etc. If you
have a little or a lot to share, there is no better way to make your
life have greater purpose than to make a positive difference in the
lives of others by giving money, time, guidance, and/or material items
to those who truly need your help. And if you're struggling
to get by like hundreds of thousands of others for a variety
of reasons, you can find the assistance you need -- you may need to be
persistent and patient, but there are many people out there who care
and want to help, so explore all of your options! The links
below are just a start. New charities are popping up every
day, so don't neglect to run your own search such as on Google using
the keywords most relevant to your region and

to wounded war veterans.
