#托福作文咩第 28 期 Day 10#
We always see some beggars in crowed places, such as the enter of subway and the railway station. Some people who pass by will give money voluntarily, while others directly ignore them. This phenomenon raises a heated debate: Compared with the past, whether nowadays people are willing to help strangers. As far as I concerned, I agree that people are more willing to help strangers than before. I will illustrate my point of view by following reasons and examples.
In recent years, individual donations are more than in the past few years. Donating is a way to help others we don’t know. The changes in amount of individual donations show the extent of people’s readiness to help strangers. The China charity donation report shows that the total amount of individual donations has sharply gone up from 2011 to 2014. The report is the statistics of domestic mainstream charity institutions and donation platforms without public spontaneous fundraising items. But only mainstream current has reflected the amount of donations more than previous years. Therefore, in this respect, people are more willing to help strangers now.
Media recently report more good people and good deeds. Because of the increasing number of good people and good deeds, the media have more stories to release. Moreover, the increasing number of good people and good deeds definitely indicates that people are more willing to help strangers. We can read a lot of news about good deeds on the social platform. For instance, a caring person has established an orphanage to adopt homeless children and a star has established a charity foundation to help children with congenital heart disease. The similar events can be frequently covered on the NetEase News or Sina Weibo which are two of the most popular domestic social platform. To some extent, the news can reflect social reality. More and more reports show that the number of good people and good deeds grows, and then make it clear that more people are willing to help others.
Some people claim that with a great number of cheaters who take use of people’s benevolence to make money, people are unwilling to help strangers. However, this only shows that people become vigilant to help strangers. It is reported that mainstream charities still receive a large amount of donations more than the past, which illustrates that people are more willing to help strangers.
In summary, from what has been discussed above, we can conclude that in contrast to the past, people are more willing to help strangers, on account of the increasing number of individual donations and more news reports about good people and good deeds.
