Financial Planning - The Role of Giving

Financial Planning - The Role of Giving

Hi! Truly wealthy people - regardless of the size of their bank account - understand the importance of giving to charity.

We live in a wonderful inter-connected world. I don't think we'll ever fully realise just how linked we are to one another until we get to the other side of Eternity. In the meantime, it is wise for us to remain aware of what is happening across our tiny planet and to take the time to help heal the wounds of others... if and when we can.

Very recently another quake in Indonesia killed more than 6,000 people. You're probably aware of it; after all, most people are!

But only a tiny fraction of humanity has responded with tangible, material help. Are you among that minority? Have you already done something to help the survivors?

If you have prayed for them, I salute you because I know God hears.

If you have prayed for them and also given of your hard-earned money to help alleviate their suffering, I stand up and salute you!

I'm about to send out a brief message to thousands of my GET BETTER ezine subscribers, urging each one to pray and give. I welcome you to join them. If you already know of a solid, effective charity that is doing a great job in the hardest hit parts of Indonesia, please give to it. But if you want to help, yet don't know how to do so, I recommend Mercy Corps.

Check it out for yourself. And if you understand the core importance of intelligent, effective, directed giving within a holistic financial plan, please act.

Thanks and take care.

Warmest regards,


Rajen Devadason is CEO of RD Book Projects and its sister company RD WealthCreation Sdn Bhd. He lives in sunny, peaceful Malaysia with his gorgeous wife Rachel. He's a Malaysian Securities Commission-licensed financial planner, a life planning consultant, a professional speaker and a serial author... which probably explains why he's so exhausted! Some of his books are available here, and, if you're interested, here are some quotations he reckons are accurate, bold or cool.
