Philanthropy is one of the most fulfilling things one can be involved in. Helping those in need is actually essential to our own personal growth and happiness. While some of the causes and gifts make a lot of sense, some of the gifts given may seem a bit eccentric and much. Here we will cover five of the strangest things people have ever done to contribute to charitable causes. While they may seem a bit strange, the fact is they were done out of a spirit of giving. As long as we keep this in mind, even the most bizarre gift takes on a whole new meaning.
Sheena Matheiken of New York has a deep compassion for children who live stricken with poverty, and knew she needed to help somehow. The woman opted to accomplish this by committing to donning the same dress every day for an entire year, with any funds raised going to the Akanksha Foundation, established to provide for and further the education of Indian children. While she spiced up the look daily by the creative use of accessories, she accomplished the goal beautifully, raising over $100,000 for this vital need. Bravo!
