I do not see much charitable behavior since I work at a doctor's office and they are not able to give out free medication. The kind acts that I do see is people being more generous in the things that they say, for example saying "happy holidays!"
I think it is important for businesses to be involved in the community because it is their job to do so. They need to serve their community and give back as much as possible, because without the community they wouldn't have a business. They also gain support by giving back and they could gain even more business by the way that the company benefits people.
In my community, I have cleaned up and tried to make it a better place. I could use these skills to be a leader by taking initiative and knowing that I need to take charge, whether I am asked to do so or not.
