You may be a bit skeptical when giving/donating to charity organizations, I know I was. Then I was kindly reminded by Shel Silverstein, author of children's picture book, “The Giving Tree”. The true Art in Giving is to give from the heart without any expectation of a return
The intention behind your giving is the most important thing. The intention should always be to create happiness for both the giver and the receiver wondering what exactly do you have to give? Everybody has something of value for another person. It could be a kind word, a simple smile, some appreciation, the sharing of some special knowledge, even a helping hand or a bit of support during a difficult emotional time.
November 28, 2017 is #GivingTuesday take Part, join the movement and give - whether it’s some of your time, a donation, gift or the power of your voice in your local community.
Below are a few organizations in the Katy area who would dearly benefit from your giving. Remember, you always have something to give everyone, anytime.
