Giving is important. I am sure of this. With the amount of research that continues to be published about the importance of giving, the impact of kindness, I have no doubt in my mind that giving is more than we ever thought. The video in this post is a favorite of mine. It was originally posted by Fearless Motivation, and posted again by this V-blogger. I shared it with our volunteer writers who tirelessly contribute articles to our blog, to remind them that their giving has impact.
Some of my favorite quotes from this video are the following:
Imagine what 7 billion humans could accomplish if we loved and respected one another.
If everyone was running their own race, but cheering for all others at the same time.
Maybe we will never see it our lifetime.
But what we all can do is start with ourselves.
How you treat people ultimately tells it all.
I have been reading, studying, sharing, mentoring about giving and its impact since 2010. 12 years later I still know that giving is the best way to support yourself, your community, our global communities. It is not about large philanthropic gifts, it is about small daily actions that we give to people, the planet and animals. It is simple, easy acts of giving that make the most impact. When you give, both you and others feel good. They want to also give to another so they can have that same feeling and have impact. The ripple effect of giving is powerful, and all we have to do is one act of giving each day to have that ripple around the world.
So what are you waiting for? Watch this video. Join our giving community and find out more about small acts of giving that will change the world one day, one person at a time. This will happen in our lifetime if we all just start. It really is that simple. It really is that easy.
