And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. 1 Corinthians 13:13″
Charity is the voluntary giving of help,typically in the form of money, to those in need as a humanitarian act.
Faith, hope, and charity are important virtues of Christianity. By faith we believe that God exists, hope gives us expectation and drive to move on, and charity or love is a physical demonstration of an inner work. Charity or love is the greatest, because through charity or love faith and hope makes sense to us. A very good example is the coming of Jesus Christ to the world to redeem man from sin; this is an outward manifestation of the love of God which makes sense of our faith and hope in God. Dear reader, which of the three:faith, hope, and charity is the greatest.

Children naturally love to help others so nurturing them innate generosity is likely to mean that they grow up with a greater appreciation of what they have, and will carry on supporting charity in years to come.
Giving to charity encourages friends and family to do the same.
Your own charitable donations can inspire your nearest and dearest ones to give to causes important to them, and could even bring about a family wide effort to back a charity or charities that have special significance to you as a group.
Giving to charity strengthen your personal values.
