Charity Will Not Change Society nor Lead To Sustainable Change

I do not believe in Charity, Doing Good or Giving Back .I sincerely believe in doing The Right Thing according to universal values such as honesty, empathy, respect and justices. These values are universal and accepted by most religions, races, genders and ages.

Unfortunately a good heart and Doing The Right Thing will not change society. We need action, collaboration and real change in structure.
