When considering a cause, see http://mg.alhatorah.org/Vayikra/25.35 and pay special attention to Rashi!


"When he is well enough, he works; when he is incapacitated, his own people take care of him. And not in a poor and stingy way, but with a fine and large benevolence. His race is entitled to be called the most benevolent of all the races of men. A Jewish beggar is not impossible, perhaps; such a thing may exist, but there are few men that can say they have seen that spectacle. The Jew has been staged in many uncomplimentary forms, but, so far as I know, no dramatist has done him the injustice to stage him as a beggar. Whenever a Jew has real need to beg, his people save him from the necessity of doing it. The charitable institutions of the Jews are supported by Jewish money, and amply. The Jews make no noise about it; it is done quietly; they do not nag and pester and harass us for contributions; they give us peace, and set us an example an example which we have not found ourselves able to follow; for by nature we are not free givers, and have to be patiently and persistently hunted down in the interest of the unfortunate."
-Mark Twain, Concerning the Jews (Harper's Monthly, 1899)

My friend's family is running a 48 hour campaign to raise funds for his cousin Rochel. Rochel is a precious 6 year old born with cerebral palsy leaving her completely handicapped. As she gets older it is becoming increasingly difficult to carry and maneuver her around as her family lives in a cramped second floor apt. Please help them buy a ground level wheelchair accommodating house. The link is https://www.dryveup.com/rochel/3108. Or you can donate by phone 8454201775 to his account 3108. Tizku lemitzvos and may the Zechus of Tzedakah protect us all. Please forward to include others in this urgent mitzvah.
