What are kappa kappa psi secrets?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

AEA stands for “αγωνίζομαι επί άκρος“ which translates to strive for the highest. The door knock is: two knock, two knocks, one knock. Handshake is the two brothers lock hands like they’re doing a normal handshake and get closed together to conceal it. Then the older brother (one who was initiated the longest ago) quickly and slightly jerks their hand left and back to center (like they’re opening a doorknob). The it’s the newer brother’s turn to do the same thing. The day before you officially cross you have to stay up all night and watch the sunrise together and spend alone time with your class and the guiding spirit; the “sunrise ceremony“ as it’s called. Another event is ”joint ceremony“ which begins when you get randomly kidnapped. A brother comes up behind you and covers your eyes, puts on a blindfold, and takes you to a random secret location. They’re completely silent the whole time until they remove the blindfold, and you see all the psi tbs members are there. All they do is sing some songs and talk and you go home. The 3 main rituals (not including the 2 ceremonies) are bland and feel like a Catholic church mass. The biggest secret of all is that psi is a club for the elite and not a brotherhood based on character.

When did charities start?

User Avatar

Asked by Oliversquires92

Charities started informally centuries ago, the idea of charity or helping out those in need is as old as mankind. It is difficult to pinpoint when the first formal charities may have begun, but the Catholic Church was founded in 1 A.D. and can be called one of the oldest still running charities ever founded.

What charities help poor countries?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

There are many poor people around the world. Unfortunately, just giving them money has proven not to be helpful in the long run. Much better to help them create jobs, provide medical and technical assistance and so on, which allows the people to sustain the improvements. Experience has shown that large government funding often becomes the fortunes in the hands of the rulers or owners of the markets. Funds and materials sent to Iraq, Afganistan and various African countries have largely not ended up as planned. Not only that, but the items sent are inappropriate in some cases. Tents sent to Haiti were less preferred than tarps. Other items were great charitable writeoffs, but useless for the people who needed real help. Even Oprah, with her school for girls in Africa, was unable to predict the effects and had to review her efforts. However, the real deal is to discern the best ways to help the community you wish to--in the way that they need--not just what you think.

As far as the poor people go in the United States, it just depends on the area of the country where you live, how rural it is, and how interested the people who have the funds are in targeting the issue. Supporting research into different diseases is largely more popular than that of the plight of the poor.

Why is a charity called a charity?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Caritas is a Latin word, usually translated as Charity it implies, Caring, love of one"s neighbor, sharing is caring, etc. the various charities took this up as a sort of collective banner- a catch all term for social service organizations. For example the Salvation Army, Volunteers Of America, Red Cross, Unicef, etc. it has been claimed that the last named, Unicef is the world"s largest Secular ( not religious oriented) charity and it is one of the few charitable organizations per se ( That is, by itelf) that has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize- in l965 or 66. This got big publicity at the time and Danny Kaye, named chairman launched a whirlwind flying tour of Europe for publicity purposes- for UNICEF. around l964 Halloween collection cans came in. ( Unicef is one of the few charities to avoid the Christmas rush, preferring to operate at peak in collection mode on Halloween. while on the subject of Charities, the British Royal Red Cross, which is a quasi-Government agency has long had the motto of Faith, Hope, and Charity used on its various badges and insignia. a Sterling idea. The Amnesty International and Doctors without Borders have also been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize ( En Masse) but this is rather unusual.
