There are many reasons and opinions on why it is important to give tzedakah on Pesach, but no one really knows the exact answer. I think it is important to give tzedakah on Pesach because that's what the Egyptions did when the Hebrews left Egypt. We didn't have anything to support ourselves on our journey, so the Egyptions provided us with gold and silver. Without the things they gave us, we probably wouldn't have survived the desert journey, aside from God's blessings. To this day, we give tzedakah on Pesach to thank the Egyptions from thousnads of years ago.
