雅思8分作文 | 你认为做慈善应该给当地社区捐款还是给国家或私人慈善机构捐款?

Some people prefer to help or support directly in the local community for people who need it; however, others prefer to give money to the national or private charities. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

有些人喜欢直接在当地社区帮助或支持有需要的人;然而,其他人更愿意把钱捐给国家或私人慈善机构。讨论两种观点并给出你的意见。

01

Philanthropy is an increasingly discussed concept in modern society, especially as inequality grows across the world. (引出话题关键词)It’s natural for those with more than enough money to want to help out people with less than them, however, the way to go about it is debated.(引出观点的讨论) Some people may choose to donate their money to charities or government organisations to try and make a difference.

The benefits of donating to a charity are fairly straight-forward. (观点句)If an individual does his or her research surrounding the organisation, and chooses an appropriate charity based on correct information, then it is generally assumed that the action of donating to the charity will have a positive effect on the parties involved. (分论点1) Donating directly to a charity provides a way for people with little spare time to still contribute to making a difference. (分论点2)Many of the world’s richest people, such as Bill Gates and Jack Ma are known for their regular large donations to organizations fighting poverty and helping the world become a better place.(举例论证)

Volunteering directly is a good way to get hands-on experience and fully utilise one’s skillset to improve the lives of others. (观点句)This type of charitable behaviour can be quite exhausting, but also very rewarding.(解释说明) During the coronavirus pandemic, many medical personnel volunteered to go to hotspots to help fight the virus. They put their own health and safety on the line to help make their local communities a better place. (举例论证)

It is very easy to argue that helping out directly is a more effective way of actually helping people, but I would emphasize that donating to charities and organisations is simply a more realistic option for most people. (强调主观观点:选择反方)Nowadays, most people have their own families and careers to maintain, and taking out too much time to volunteer can be unrealistic. (解释原因)However, people should be careful about the organizations that they donate to, and do their own research that these charities are ethical and not damaging. Volunteering in the local community is also something that people should do if they have time or if their profession is specifically in demand, but it is not the only way to help out. (对于双方面观点给出合理建议)

Key words and phrases:

1. Realistic  adj. 现实的  反义词:unrealistic

2. Emphasize  v. 强调

3. Ethical  adj. 道德的
