I frequently tell my readers that they need to donate to good causes to support their fellow man. Your wealth as an investor needs to provide for you and your family, but you also need to care for those around you. Your internal well-being depends on caring for others, if you can.
In my book, I explain that you should give 10% of your wealth to others. While some will accomplish this by donations to their local religious institutions, others need to find worth charities.
I do not review and audit worthwhile charities. However, occasionally I find ones that I think are worthwhile for you to consider. Check out this video of a high school in Southwestern Ohio - Mason Ohio. The school did a "lip dub" to raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Please join them in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Student Series campaign. Your support for this charity will help fund the therapies and treatments that help save the lives of blood cancer patients today.
For over 65 years LLS charity has invested more than $1 billion to advance cancer therapies and save lives.
Last year alone, LLS invested nearly $79.8 million in cutting-edge research. And many LLS-supported therapies not only help blood cancer patients, but are now used to treat patients with other forms of cancers as well. Nearly 40% of new cancer therapies approved by the FDA between 2000 and 2014 were first approved for blood cancer patients.
Please watch the video below (it is quite humorous and creative) and if you are moved to donate visit http://events.lls.org/pages/soh/WilliamMasonHighSchool.
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere, thank you for your support of this worthwhile charity!
