It is thought by many that the most substantial aspect of wealth is its facility to help those in need. I agree that helping people, especially deprived, is the most rewarding, hence significant opportunity that money provides.
It is obvious that having opportunity to access anything wanted provides privileged myriad things, however; I believe being able to help people i priceless since it gives any other thing it allows. Primary reason is helping gives aim to lives. For instance Hollywood Stars whom gone to African countries in order to help greedy vountarily, always come back their homes gaining a purpose in life and looking world from a different perspective.
In the modern world, money is frequently correlated with happiness, Unless its shared with others money does not bring happiness, despite rich people are often sad.
Most of the opportunities money provide are material, conversely helping gives moral, thus intangible outcomes such as happiness. When one helps other, tends to feel satisfied and completed. Experiencing the contribution to other lives is not only satisfactory but also a rewarding thing. Even a small help , such as feeding a street animal, changes all mood from depressed to pleasant in a moment.

Therefore i agree that most significant opportunity being privileged provides is its enabling nature of helping. If more rich were to help those in need, world would be a better place.
