The Importance of Service & How it Can Reshape the World

“This life is short, the vanities of the world are transient, but they alone live who live for others, the rest are more dead than alive.” –Swami Vivekeanada

Charity is vital to the progress of humanity.

There is no act too small that can reshape someone’s life. The act of giving can entail many types of actions, whether it be donating money to a good cause, volunteering at a fundraiser, or even the simple act of spreading kindness on a daily basis.

The prevalence of female leaders in our society is slowly but steadily improving.

The road to female empowerment has been a long one, but in the past decade alone, we have reached some significant milestones. The gender pay gap has had a notable increase in attention, the 2016 US Presidental election has a strong female candidate, and there has been a number of female public figures and celebrities standing up for the importance of feminism.
