There are a few things that we do as human beings that make us feel good about who we are as people and as a humanity. Having and raising our children is one. Another is the giving to charity. Wikipedia.com defines charity as the act of giving help to those in need of it. It is a humanitarian act. It involves giving money, or goods or time and effort to those who need it. It is done without expecting something in return. Patrick Zarrelli, the CEO of Dependable Website Management and The Print Killer Media Network, and a serious believer in charitable contributing has always felt that it is the right thing to do since he has been so ‘lucky in his own life’. With all of the successes Zarrelli has had in his life, Zarrelli felt that charity was a perfect way to spread that ‘luck’ as he sees it, to others.
Zarrelli is extremely proud to be able to donate and help foundations that he believes in.
He states, “Why do I donate to charity? For the greater good? To help people in need? To give back to society? Yeah, that’s all great and all, but I’m honestly just trying to offset some personal sins and maybe get my sentence in purgatory cut down to a few thousand years for good behavior.”
And while Zarrelli may have given a light-hearted answer about his motivations for why he gives, he knows that charity goes a long way and he genuinely is happy to be able to do it.
Some of the charitable organizations that Zarelli has been a benefactor to, include:
Building a website pro-bono for The Ryan Owens Foundation. Owens was the Navy SEAL that was singled out in the Donald Trump State of the Union address.
Charitable donations to The Winterfest Boat Parade.
Charitable donations to The Wilton Manors Stone Wall Parade.
Doing website creation, hosting and server support pro-bono for The Foundation for Recovery.
A $1,000 donation to The Jack and Jill Foundation.
While Zarrelli may playing coy about why he donates to charity, the truth is, that he is very proud to be able to do so. Charity is at the heart of being a good person. Giving to others while getting nothing in return is a very selfless act. It is the sign of someone who cares about the community and the things going on in it. Zarrelli knows this and it is a big reason for why he will continue to give.
Patrick puts it best when he says, “Hey, you can’t take it all with you when you meet your maker if you indeed do that. So I think it’s best to sprinkle some to others along the way and do some good.”
To that, I say, preach on, brother!
