The Covid-19 has created panic like never before! Yes, I know that WW1 and WW2 were bad, but for people born around 1940, this is perhaps the biggest ‘public crisis’ that we faced.
Now I am sure you are also inundated with requests for charity.
How have you reacted? I can tell you how I have reacted.
Every day I see ads for Sadhus being in poverty, I know priests (Vaadhyars) not having any earnings, animals like dogs not getting food as people are missing on the roads, Carpenters, Plumbers, etc. not being able to find work.
I seriously do not know how much charity we are all capable of doing, so it is up to you. I prefer sticking to 2-3 NGOs and helping them throughout.
I am working with 3-4 NGOs – of which 3 are working with children. I know 2 of them are having a cash flow crisis.
How could I help them? I have decided to pay them a small amount on a monthly basis.
What do I do with other requests? Sadly I turn them down. This is because I do not like to spread myself too thin. Makes no sense.
I know one friend who went to an NGO’s office and asked them to shift to his own office – and saved them rent on a month to month basis. Amount saved? Rs. 29,000 per month. Not bad at all.
What is in it for my friend? Saved cash, saved tax, – and anyway he had kept it closed. Not a bad idea.
Do you have any ideas?
