Public acknowledgement about donating money to a charity:
- may spread information about how easy it is to do so.
- may inspire others to do the same
We possibly should challenge the norm that charity should be silent and not spoken of, and instead mention it openly.
Many people want to help and do not know how easy it is to do so. Public acknowledgement by the giver may change that. Sure, the good feeling received by being anonymous may be lost, but the possibility that announcing it publicly will bring more donations may be more important than that.
I read of this a long time back. I prayed of it. I waited and felt lead to publicly acknowledge my donations. Life is Good.
