The Art of Giving and Helping Others

Posted on February 25, 2018 in Uncategorized

In this world of un-grace and troubles, stories of charity and giving are always placed at the highest pedestal of life. Only a few consider helping because of the thought that by giving, they will become poor. This should not be the case because the art of giving has its serious impact and results.

Why You Need to Give to Charities?

Charity organizations need to pay their office rent, power bills, communication bills, and other expenses. There are staffs that must be given allowances; there are volunteers that must be fed. Projects and plans must be carried out with the aid of the finances and funds that are raised by the organization.

With the simple donation that you can make, you are helping the organization to meet the needs in paying bills. Most importantly, you are helping to supply the lifeblood for the operations, programs, and projects of the company to go forward and avoid halting the help for those in need.

To record the fact, organizations don’t have special arms to make money for themselves. There is no product that will gain profits; and their social services are not bringing professional fees. Small charities are very dependent on the donations that are received. Everything surrounds in every dollar that is donated by individuals and companies.

The problem of most small charities is the inconsistent flow of funds. Projects and programs of the small charities must flow constantly; but if the funds of the small charities are hampered because of the inconsistent donations, everything is ruined. Inconsistency of donation leads to stagnation of the plans of the small charity. Eventually, small charities will defunct itself and close social services.

What You Can Do?

Are you working at the moment? Or are you a student? Or maybe a business owner? Whatever you are right now, you can make a difference with what you have. It is very great to make a massive impact in the lives of others by helping them reach their potentials. It will be a blissful one to help and know that you are keeping your commitment of giving back.

Yes, you don’t need to give millions to donate and help others. A single penny can be much if many will give. No need to worry about how you can give. There are many ways to give – write a check, note a bank transfer, or maybe donate through donation website. These ways will help you make a difference in your life.

A massive impact of helping others may extend to your family. Yes, when you give to small charities, you are teaching your kids the art and value of giving. You are giving them the privilege of making an impact for their lives in the future. It is a great chance to build a great person out of your kids.

The South Bank – London’s Cultural Heartland

Posted on February 19, 2018 in Uncategorized

London’s labyrinthine streets and crowded town squares have often made it hard for travellers to navigate their way through the capital’s must-see sights. And, as London is one of Europe’s centres of art and culture, it can be a difficult task to accommodate the city’s wealth of museums, galleries and historical landmarks in a single trip. But if you’ve only got a few days in London and you’d like to see some of the best it has to offer, there’s one simple answer: the South Bank.

When Londoners talk about the “South Bank”, they’re referring to a riverside area of central London located along the south bank of the River Thames. Since the early 1990s, the South Bank has seen a large amount of investment and redevelopment, and today is one of London’s most lively cultural hotspots, popular with both visitors and residents.

Of course, the South Bank’s most famous landmark – the London Eye – needs no introduction. Although one of the newest additions to the capital’s architectural landscape, the Eye is already one of its most recognisable and is estimated to attract over three million people a year. But it’s not the be all and end all of what the South Bank has to offer – wander further along the river and travellers will find some of Britain’s most famous galleries and theatres.

Tate Modern, for instance, is a huge gallery that could take the better part of a day to see in its entirety. The building itself, converted from an old power station, is a treasure and many artists have made use of its unique spaces – most recently, Doris Salcedo’s 167-metre long “crack” in the floor of Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall. Other notable galleries on the South Bank include the Hayward Gallery, (located in the South Bank Centre and well-known for its contemporary art collection) and the Imperial War Museum, home to the World War Two cruiser HMS Belfast. The Saatchi Gallery, previously one of the hallmarks of the South Bank, has now moved to new premises in Chelsea.

No tour of the South Bank would be complete without a visit to County Hall, previously the home of the Greater London Authority as well as the Saatchi Gallery. Here, visitors can explore a varied selection of attractions, such as Dali Universe and the London Aquarium. What’s more, anyone hoping to sample London’s rich and diverse theatre scene will find pleasant respite from the ubiquitous West End at the South Bank. Shakespeare’s Globe – perhaps one of the most famous theatres in the world – only stages productions each summer, but visitors at other times of the year will be able to take a tour of the theatre itself. Additionally, the National Theatre, located right next to the British headquarters for IBM, promises a wealth of new and classic productions each year and has previously been responsible for some of the highlights of British theatre over the last forty years, such as Alan Bennett’s The Madness of George III and The History Boys.

Even if you don’t have much time to spend discovering the hotspots along the South Bank, be sure to take the time to walk along this famous area of London. The South Bank is easily accessible by tube, so whatever hostel or hotel in London you’re staying at, it will be easy to locate. The official South Bank site offers detailed guides of South Bank walks, so finding your way around this exciting and vibrant part of Britain’s capital will be simple for even the most inexperienced visitors to London.
