An act of charity. A demonstration of love, selflessness, stewardship or compassion. Faith communities throughout the world use these words to validate donation and embrace. Here are views quoted by those in charge of these religious orders.
Donation of all types are what make our society a better place to live. Donations may range from giving to charities for an endearing cause, donating one's blood for a fellow citizen needing a transfusion and volunteering one's time for the benefit of others. These are all excellent examples of the human spirit in action. Whole body donation to medical education and research can be a lasting and enduring gift to society, as well as future generations.
