How We Can Give

“Anyone who thinks they are too small to make a difference has never tried to fall asleep with a mosquito in the room” - Christine Todd Whitman

We usually correlate giving in financial terms and indeed we will discuss these in detail; however it includes much more than this.  Giving is actually a mindset that enables us to look beyond our own circumstances and see a much bigger picture; it enables us to truly appreciate the needs of others and bring whatever resources we have to make the world a better place.

For example, in this context, giving could also include:

  • a smile
  • a kind word
  • our time
  • sharing our talents and gifts
  • asking if we can help someone
  • listening to someone who is hurting
  • proactively observing people to see if there might be a need
  • helping others who are in a better situation or better equipped to provide help
  • sending a note or card to someone
  • mowing the lawn or taking food to a neighbor who is sick
  • volunteering
