I found this article to be very interesting. I hope you enjoy it too:
Although this article speaks to the need for individual responsibility and action; it must be stated that regardless of how hard some try, individual circumstances can at times can be extremely difficult. We’re so very blessed in so many ways in the United States. God has blessed us tremendously and even a great deal of the least of us in this country have far more than billions of other people from around the world. It’s because of our free market economy in the United States–not in spite of it–that makes it possible for us to give to those who are less fortunate.
If you are reading this, you’re certainly not among the poorest of Americans and definitely not among the poorest of the world. Please think of those who are less fortunate than you this Thanksgiving and Christmas season and give to a local mission to help the homeless or the Salvation Army. They’ll be ever so grateful and so will the people ministered to by your generous gift.
Happy Thanksgiving! Praise God for His wonderful and abundant blessings!
