“If you haven’t got any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble,” said Bob Hope who was an English-born American comedian.

Charity can be defined in several ways. Charity is giving happiness to other living beings-humans or animals. When you give happiness to others, you will get the same in return. Although sometimes you have to give away your belongings, you feel good because you have done something good.
Giving happiness can be done in various ways. It can be your money, time, goods, food or anything else. Every year, charity organizations all over the world help to save and improve people’s lives, fighting disease, protecting children, and giving hope to many thousands of people.
To honor the important work that many charity organizations do, in 2012 the United Nations decided to nominate an annual International Day of Charity as an official day of recognition and celebration. September 05th is the date for the international day of charity. The reason the date was chosen is because it is the anniversary date of the death of Mother Teresa of Calcutta.
This choice commemorates the tireless works that Mother Teresa did by devoting her whole life to charity work. To celebrate this special day every year, the work of different charities all over the word is publicized and celebrated, and people are encouraged to donate money and time, to carry out charitable works, and also to educate people and raise awareness about the many charitable issues worldwide. Education and giving are the essence of this special day.
Nowadays, there are famous and rich persons who do more charity works. They have handed over billions of dollars to charitable organizations across the world.
