“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill
These lines perfectly sum up how charity goes on to make us more humane. The importance of spreading more awareness about selfless giving through the linkage of all the important stakeholders has always been deeply understood. With these ideals, the United Nations General Assembly has come up with the International Day of Charity in 2012. It is celebrated on September 5, each year. This day was chosen to commemorate the anniversary of the passing away of Mother Teresa, who received the Nobel Peace Prize for her contribution in the struggle to overcome poverty and distress.
