The Gift of Giving

Hug

With so many people in the world in need of moral support, I want to ask you a favour… to make a difference to someone’s life. Whether it’s someone you know really well or someone you meet today, reach out and find a way to help them. Why? Because there is no greater gift than the gift of giving

How can you help? The list is endless but here are a few suggestions:

  • Send someone a card to say ‘hi’ just because it’s been a while and add a sincere message about thinking of them
  • Give someone a call and have a meaningful catch-up
  • Find a local community group that could do with some help and where you can take your skills to make a difference; baking, decorating, talking with elderly residents, youth centres, soup kitchen
  • Offer to help out at your children’s school (if applicable of course!)
  • Fundraising effort – choose a cause that is close to your heart, something that will make you feel thankful that you can help in some way.
  • Say hello to someone you don’t know and seal it with a big smile. You don’t need a response, you just need to give and let your confidence shine…
  • Tell your loved ones how much you love them and tell them at least one reason why

Giving has never been easier!

Live Blissfully!

    It’s always nice to write someone an old fashioned handwritten letter to touch base or tell someone how much you care about them. The personal touch will go a long way and I guarantee it will be a big surprise!
