Thursday, Dec 30, 1920 DUPLICATION AND WASTE IN CHARITABLE EFFORT CAUSE OF HARMFUL RESULT, SAYS EXPERT By J. R. GWL. Secretary of the Associated Charities. CHRISTMAS hu come and gone. Th poor have received their an nul baskets of food and no doubt some are hungry Kga-ln. Many .i. wakened to an Interest in their less lortnnate neighbors, bnt this Intar- st lasted with some of them for a few days at most and will be dor mant until the same period in 1321. A great deal of energy and enthusi asm can be put into the work of glv ; iv.g the poor a ainner on a lestivai day but how difficult It is sometimes to arouse a sununwi interest in tne its appealing;, but more useful work of making; it possible for everyone to provide their own dinners for ev- rv day in the year. At Christmas we are all inclined te think of poverty as merely slr- mfyuig- lafc of food, clothing, money ana entineiy overiooK tne race tnat for every person In need of relief there Is back ox this need a cause, III health, had habits, mismanage ment. Ignorance, carelessness and in dolence all help to cause watt. Charity Sometimes Harmful. Another cause of poverty or of a onditlon which produces poverty is indiscriminate, unwise charity. Re lief grivea when It Is not needed or tnven witnout reeara to needs other Than material, fosters dependency and helplessness. This year, as usual, many people received two or more bankets. None of these needed two or more well filled baskets, bnt some of them did need money for rent and coal. It would have been better to have sent the money which went to buy the second basket to the starving; chil dren of Europe. All this duplication and wnstA wntiM have been ore vented if more people and organizations had taken advantage of the confidential ; registration list we keep at Christmas 1 time. I have been asked as usual this Christmas to give names of poor children to Sunday school classes so they could give them a party. Now most of the poor people I know are just as sensitive as other people. They don't like to be put in a special , group to be known as poor children or poor people, while their more for tunate neighbors gather around them to enjoy the satisfaction that comes from "seeing with our own eyes the people we help," as one woman said. So Eirake for Waste. If yon are interested In the poor for just one time each year, you can not help them as real friends, for you are strangers. I believe In Christ-' was KKuiB, uui j. uu Luiuit tavre a' should be some system even to j Christmas giving, and that there is I J no excuse for waste or for misdi rected charity. Let us do our Christmas charity as if it were not altogether different from the charity at other times. Hn- KrVH? S5"irJ5r.a?" the water can be seen weaknesses and the same elements of strength. The Christmas spirit of helpfulness should be manifested throughout the entire year and should mean more than the giving of material relief. There is misery and want in the world, hut ranch can he prevented and abolished.
