Why give to DonateBeyond? We want to make a difference in the world. There are substantial needs in developing nations that far exceed those in the United States.
According to Worlddata.info (https://www.worlddata.info/average-income.php), the United States is 9th in the world (of 79 countries reporting) with an average income of $58,270 annually. Average versus median is substantial with the median being $29,930 annually. That translates to between $159.64 and $82.00 per day that Americans are blessed with.
That is much higher than the poverty level of $1.25 per day (https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-17312819) for the balance of the world’s 116 countries that do not report.
We want to be your extension.
While most have never seen the needs of those that exist on $1.25 to $2.00 per day, those of us serving with DonateBeyond have. I personally have stood in Haiti eating fast food fried chicken while a 10-year-old with a pot belly, caused by malnutrition, stood and watched me. Had I given him a piece of chicken it would have made him sick, but I will never forget that day, the look on his face or the realization of how blessed I am.
We can help with poverty, but we don’t want just a quick fix. We want to help find sustainable solutions. Working with legitimate not-for-profits, which provide education, job training, jobs, economic incentives through micro-credit programs, and agricultural education can and will change lives in developing nations. These changed lives then change other lives.
When you make the decision to donate your real estate through DonateBeyond you are transforming generations for the better.
