I remember making my Christmas list when I was a kid. I wrote out specifically the things I wanted to get. In fact, my sisters and I still do this little ritual so we’re sure to give what we know the other wants to get. But what I’ve learned over the recent years is that I GET so much more when I GIVE. I have written before about the great online community, The 29-Day Giving Challenge. I encourage you to check it out if you haven’t already. Now, I’m hyper-tuned in to little “gives” every day… bigger ones when I can… and more so during the holiday season when it seems like more people are in a spirit of giving.
Just today, a friend gave me this “gift” which I’d like to share with you: A great series on the Power of Giving on CNN.com. It doesn’t cost anything except a little time to read and to pass on. Check it out and let me know what you think.
