Being generous with your time and your financial resources to those who are in need is not a sure-fire way to score points on your way to Heaven. It is, though, something that you can do out of brotherly and sisterly love for it is love that binds you one to the other in the face of pain and suffering until there is a day you can celebrate together in joy. Whatever you can give in the form of something substantial like your money or your time or even as seemingly insubstantial as your prayers is what will make the difference in someone's life. Our blessings and our thanks for considering any of these organizations listed herein on this page or for giving to your own favorite charity.
