Some people think that the most important thing about being rich is it gives a person the opportunity to help other people.

There is a common belief that the people who are rich will help others or provide an opportunity for other people. In my opinion, I disagree with the statement and this essay will further explain it with different examples.
Firstly, In our country, there are a lot number of people who are being rich. Among them, it's evident that few of them are only helping others to satisfy their life needs. For instance, One of my friend's families was well-settled and there were rich from their childhood. But, they never ever try to donate the money or help others with their needs. Instead, they used to buy things which are unnecessary for them. There is a situation, where a person has contacted them for an emergency. But they refused to give him a penny.
Secondly, There is a lot of people in our society who are helping others. Similarly, there are also, well social welfare organizations, the main idea of those is to serve the people. For example, we are from a middle-income group, but we used to serve the people that we can. This zeal to serve the people made my father start an organization named "TOSA". The main theme of it is to help the people or the students with their necessity needs. We conducted a lot of activities, few among them are, helping the poor by providing the necessary items to lead their life, distributing books for the student whose families are below low income, and a lot more activities.
In conclusion, Helping others does not depend on the income that we earn, it depends on the way that we think. There are people who serve others instead of their income. Similarly, there are people who don't help.
