    There are many Non-Governmental Organization being established by people who are trying to help others that are in a dire situation.

People from all over the world donate money to those organization so that these organization can use these money to help people in those countries, medically and also help them rebuild houses.

    Social Responsibility (CSR) has been a staple topic of discussion all around the world. CSRs meaning in my research has shown to originate within an organization. In other words, it is business specific. What CSR means to one company is not necessarily what it means to another.
