“The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest of intentions.” ~ Oscar Wilde
What charitable organizations fuel your passion for giving?
I’ve always had a heart for children and the elderly: the most vulnerable and important members of our society. Any news or stories about abused or neglected children and elderly make me very very upset and even angry. I’m not writing this piece to advertise or to show off my charities but I did want to talk about the importance of community and giving for me personally.
You do not need a hefty bank account or eons of free time to help others and to give! There are so many different ways to contribute and each of those ways create enormous ripple effects that cannot be measured in strict numerical or physical values. My friends always laugh or shake their heads at me because I often cannot say “no” when people ask for help. But the extreme joy and satisfaction that I feel when I do contribute cannot be expressed in words and it is something I’d like continue to do for as long as I can even of no one may know the ways in which I am helping.
