The mark to doing genuine good does not essentially lie in the monetary value of what you are giving; it lies in the qualitative personal value of what you are giving. While giving away excessive food and/or money is always welcome (so long as it results in a full net gain for the sake of charity) giving something of high personal value to you just means more. Consider, for example, a rich individual giving away 10, 000 EGP, and a much less well-off individual donating the same amount, or a woman donating her hair to cancer patients. Surely, the latter cases have a very unique value tied to them.
During Ramadan, we are all exposed to several ads which aim at encouraging people to donate to a wide variety of causes and organisations, with many celebrities and well-known cover girls participating in these ads. That being said, it’s very easy to just gather a bunch of cash, dump it on a fancy project and then leave, without caring to understand what such donations can actually do and/or how much they can change someone’s life.
Looking to do some good this Ramadan, Kinda Alloush has just put her wedding gown up for sale. Alloush will later donate the total amount of profit to more than one charitable organisation. The actress has recently posted a picture on her official Instagram account with her wedding dress, explaining her gratitude for all those who worked on this piece. Additionally, Alloush described how hard it is to give away something as near and dear to any woman’s heart as a wedding gown.
