What are Service Organizations?

You've seen them on TV, or read about them in the newspapers -- these are the people on the frontlines providing food, shelter, and support where it's most needed around the globe.

Many people have adopted a practice of contributing a set percentage of the income (typically 5 to 10%) to worth-while charities and projects.

Why it's so important...

So many of us yearn to make a difference in the world, but tend to get caught-up in the many details of our day-to-day lives.

By contributing a small percentage of our monthly income to projects and organizations that are actively contributing to the greater good, we expand our own sphere of influence, as well as fostering a sense of well-being and self-esteem.
