Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Nowadays people are more willing to help people they don't know (for example, by giving clothing and food to people who need them) than they were in the past. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer Be sure to use your own words. Do not use memorized examples.

It is an axiomatic fact that one of the most cardinal pillars of any society is that people consider others' situations and help each other even when they do not know each other. One of the main helps in any society is charity helps, such as giving clothing or food to people who need them. Even though some people believe that nowadays, people are more willing to help people they do not know than they were in the past, others think otherwise. I personally subscribe to the former belief on the ground, which will be explained in the upcoming paragraphs. To begin with, many societies went through drastic cultural changes, among which is people's attitude toward equality and individuals at lower social levels. Nowadays, many students get familiar with such concepts of helping and social equality as early as possible in their education system. As a result, they are going to be more aware of people in need, and they are more inclined to help those people in many ways, such as by giving clothing or food. For example, my 10-year-old brother came to me with a beautiful story that he had read in class. The story was about a family who was so poor that the children of the family could not buy books to study; however, one day, a good person gave him some books for free and made the children so happy. My brother told me that he was inspired by the story, and he is going to help people when he gets older, so he can make other children happy, too. Furthermore, today, there are plenty of charities and non-profit organizations that make the donation and helping process much easier, faster, and more accessible, meaning one does not need to search for poor people and all he or she should do is go to a charity and donate whatever they want. For instance, my brother had lots of books that he read them long time ago. A few days after he told me that story, he donated all of his books to a charity so other children also enjoy them. In spite of the fact that he will not know any of those children that are going to read those books, he is already so happy about them and considers himself their friend. The easier it gets to help others, the more help people will give to those who need it. To sum up, nowadays, not only do people learn more about helping other people in need, but they can also donate and help poor people in much easier and more convenient ways, like donating to charities and non-profit organizations. Considering these two reasons, I believe that today, people are more willing to help people whom they do not know than past.
