Charity organizations are an organization that brings many people to life as many opportunities as they can to help them with their education and education. Most people who donate will reflect on their inner values ​​well. Deep down, they want to fill their lives with others. Most people who are always in trouble are less likely to pay much attention to donations. Some people focus on donations to develop our minds. Donations will earn us a lot of recognition from most people. The foundations are an organization that gives people the opportunity to be equally recognized. If we participate in the donation. It makes us even more valuable. Donations add value to both themselves and others around the world. Give people the same opportunity as we do. The donation is multi-channel. This makes us feel like donating more for charity. For example, making a donation through the Internet is easier than walking the bank or driving a car to a donation place.

Although today’s technology is currently the all-around convenience for consumers. Online donations are higher but in some donor sites, donations are not reported later on. Which donor funds are used in which part of the project? or some projects are open to donate all the time and like forever. Most people may think that it is only a small amount of money, but a small amount of money from a lot of people is a tremendous amount of money that can help a lot of people. If money is not used in the right way, money will not be valuable or become kind. These might be tricked into transferring money to someone who uses the money for themselves.

Smartphone can access to the daily lives of human beings, so that they can be so fluid and flexible that they can make a lot of habits. It is normal for one side to be useful and the other side have lots of disadvantages which not knowing before.

Have you ever ask yourself? Where is your phone? How many time do you look up to your phone or where do you check your phone? 

Recently, the amount of Australians who addicted to smartphone has increased. From result of the survey of Cisco found that people will feel worried when the phone is disappear, review messages and updates at least once every thirty minutes (Ryan 2013).

From the report that read about Australian and smartphone make me curious about people behavior during using smartphone. So,I created the pulls to identify how often do people check their phone in one day.

“You know, can you not put your phone down whilst you’re in your car? I mean, we’re talking not just about using the phone for voice, we’re talking about texting while you’re driving, and that’s a really dangerous thing.” Kevin Bloch, Cisco’s chief technology officer K saids(Ryan 2013).

After read through is sentence it make me want to know more about the place that people usually check their phone because in the news also said about the dangerous habits which is come from checking the text during driving the car or while walking on the street but the result that come out is no one not tell the truth from what they did.

The way to get to know and protect yourself from this illness is have a look at your behavior in daily life. I found the video which everyone can have a look and check themselves about smartphone addicted behavior.
