Australian Charities for Children

Children Charities Melbourne

It has been scientifically proven that spending money on ourselves does not heighten our perception of self-satisfaction or wellbeing. On the other hand, a Harvard Business School research program revealed that giving to others is directly related to an increase in our sense of self-satisfaction. Our sense of happiness is heightened the most when we give directly to charity ourselves.

However, not all of us can constantly give, so the choice to be made is: what charity do I donate to? Cottage by the Sea is an Australian charity for children, where we believe that children are the future, so if you can donate, donate to the future. Each person would like to think that our sense of wellbeing, political freedom, and personal accomplishments are the results of our own efforts, which they are, but we must also acknowledge that none of these realities would be possible without certain essential material conditions: food, clean water, shelter and basic healthcare. The fact of the matter is that not all people in our society have all these things. Donating to charity sets us on a path towards building a better tomorrow, one that is more equal, more stable and happier for all of us. Effective aid efforts have been repeatedly proven to increase the child’s quality of life and level of happiness. At Cottage by the Sea, we offer children experiences that will provide disadvantaged children with inspiration, fun and opportunity.
