Some of the best reasons to give are the
ones you may not have considered - the ones
that make it worth your while to go that
extra step. People who have contributed
money to a charity report that they get
back in satisfaction and joy more than they
ever expend in inconvenience or effort -
what you get back is immeasurable. You'll
also receive these benefits:
- Giving helps keep taxes and other costs
- Giving returns to society some of the
benefits society gives you.
- Giving lets those who have more, share
with those who have less.
- Giving encourages more giving - you
can set an example for others.
It's What in
the World You Can Do!
You might be thinking, "The little
bit that I can do will never help much!"
or "What in the world can I do?"
If you've ever spent ten minutes reading
a book to a lonely child, you know that
even that small amount of compassion and
attention can make a world of difference.
No one person can solve the world's problems,
but what little you do can make your little
corner of the world-or one far away from
yours a happier, healthier, safer place
to live for those who need your help. Each
of us can right a wrong, fill a plate, visit
a shut-in or clean up a park - and that
does make a difference for us all!
