As the holiday’s approached we shared with you about “Giving Gifts” – items that you could purchase for holiday gifts that give back! We were overwhelmed with such a positive response and loved seeing each of you come in for Giving Keys, Wearable Compassion, Village of Hope Paper Bead items, and more!! We know that, on top of your involvement with platforms offered by Philanthropy, many of you served others this past holiday season in countless other ways!
We heard stories of serving meals to the homeless and buying gifts for children whose holiday would be lacking. You all shared powerful testimonies about ways that your selflessness breathed life into another human soul that was in desperate need of one of those touches that say, “I see you… HE sees you.” We know that not all of you got a chance to share with us and others how you gave or served and today, we would be honored if you would share on this blog platform how you positively impacted the world around us this past holiday season! Please know that sharing your actions is not boastful but rather a way to spur others on to get involved. Sometimes, people are desperate to give and help and be involved in the bigger picture but it is hard to know where to start. By sharing what you and your family did to impact our communities, you are putting the tool of inspiration in someones hands!
So… please share. Did you serve at a soup kitchen? Did you provide gifts for a family in tough times? Did you pick up the coffee tab of the person in line behind you or tip extra well to the wait staff working Christmas Eve? Maybe you invited someone over for a warm meal at your family table? We would love to hear…ok.. go!
Love in Him,
Your Philanthropy Family
