The Seed We Plant

” Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness ” Quote said by Martin Luther King. Without a doubt Altruism is a seed that grows to be a fruitful tree. It’s a trait that we should teach our children.
It’s highly represented in random act of kindness.Where we help others without expecting anything in return even not waiting for gratitude. its scientifically proven that doing a charity activity of any kind (Donating your money , time or blood) is Good for your health. Studies find these health benefits associated with giving:
Lower Blood pressure
Increased self-esteem 
Less Depression
Lower stress Levels 
Longer life
Greater happiness 
A 2008 study by Harvard Business School professor Michael Norton and colleagues found that giving money to someone else lifted participants’ happiness more that spending it on themselves (despite participants’ prediction that spending on themselves would make them happier). 
These good feelings are reflected in our biology. In a 2006 study, Jorge Moll and colleagues at the National Institutes of Health found that when people give to charities, it activates regions of the brain associated with pleasure, social connection, and trust, creating a “warm glow” effect. Scientists also believe that altruistic behavior releases endorphins in the brain, producing the positive feeling known as the “helper’s high.”
A 1999 study led by Doug Oman of the University of California, Berkeley, found that elderly people who volunteered for two or more organizations were 44 percent less likely to die over a five-year period than were non-volunteers. 
The animal kingdom abounds with animals who help (“animal altruism” it’s called). Whales may support a sick member of their pod, or refuse to leave a wounded or distressed member. Monkeys will pick through the fur of other monkeys to clean off fleas and other parasites. A honeybee may sting you if you go near its hive, thereby ending its life in an attempt to protect the colony. Wolves and wild dogs bring back food to members of the pack who have taken no part in the hunt. Altruism is a trait that exists in the Animals defying Charles Darwin theory of Evolution about ” Survival of the fittest and natural selection ” Unfortunately, evolution is taught as an absolute fact.  It is sad that they doesn’t reveal the weaknesses in this theory.They refuse to show the roaring silence of evidence of the transitional fossils. They decline to state that such random mutations cannot possibly increase an organism’s capabilities.  They fail to say how such complexities of life forms could have occurred by random chance or blind luck.  They don’t reveal the impossibility of life developing on its own. the true explanation for helpful animals cannot be found in a purposeless theory like evolution, but rather in understanding that God the Creator has placed the world’s array of animals on earth for His glory as they fill particular roles in the planet’s ecology. That some creatures should help others in maintaining that role is no surprise to those who know that God, not evolution, created life on earth. So one observing Nature closely can see clearly that God is teaching us Altruism by actions represented in The Animal kingdom.
Altruism and Philanthropy is about more than giving – the outcome of the action is essential. It’s not just about giving money. 
“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” Quote said by Maimonides. 
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is the second largest charity in the world, with Warren Buffett as one of its major donors. They take a utilitarian approach where they focus on making the biggest difference for as many people as possible in the areas of health, poverty, and education. It’s about making an impact. You don’t have to be a billionaire to make a significant change . Start in your own community and Assist others as much as you can and know you will be rewarded As karma works efficiently for your own good this time.
