Why do we focus so much in Community Service and Charity

Today we had again the visit of Ms Jody. Our counselor stopped by to give us a quick briefing on empathy.

During her talk we came to conclude that empathy is the first step that leads us to be sensitive to the importance of  Community Service. As we help others, we express our empathy.

As indicated in the graph below, this is expressed in different levels and quite often without us even noticing it.


As mentioned before and so many times, helping others is the best way of fighting differences in society and also to give us a glimpse of what life is about in a point of view sometimes totally opposite to our.


Nae Nae, this young student, explains on her Ted Talk that the benefits are not only for those who receive. Actually, by giving we also end up receiving, something that quite often has been overlooked.
