Zakat, “that which purifies”, in Islam, is a form of alms-giving treated in Islam as a religious tax. The notion of Zakat is to provide to the poor and those living without means of livelihood and could not meet their basic needs. Empathy strives to break the boundaries and allow people from different culture to empathize with the good of Islam. I quote, 'Rarely can a response make something better. What makes something better is a connection. When a society turns away from empathy, it loses its soul. So the big problem is when we stop taking other people's pain into account, eventually someone somewhere will do the to us and we when we feel that we most need empathy, we won't get it. The coin bank hopes to promote empathy in humanity and bring the gap of differences to a close. The coins when put in will be separated to your 'personal savings' and 'charitable amount' at a random chance. The charitable amount would be kept in a glass area for the user to see how much could be donated.
