Giving something back to your community is a wonderful fulfillment, and should be done as often as possible. Giving away money sometimes can not only help someone else, but can also help you as well. When you give away money with a grateful heart, it comes back to you tenfold. In fact, the original idea of giving money away was introduced by God, and it was called tithing. For those of other religious beliefs, giving things away, especially money, is still morally invaluable.
When you give money away, make sure to start small with a couple of dollars. For example, you can give money to Salvation Army outside Walmart during the holiday season. Throughout the year though make sure you increase the amount you give. If you can’t give away money, give away your time. Homeless shelters need help feeding people and helping people find salvation, especially around the holidays. If you can’t give time or money, you can donate clothes, toys, and more, especially for tax write offs.
Getting in the habit of giving can have great effects. Don’t ignore a call for a donation; give it just as much attention and love as you can manage. In a previous article, it mentioned a closed fist cannot receive anything. It feels good to give back to those less fortunate, and you never know when you may need to be the recipient of someone’s good deed one day.
