Posted September 14, 2018 16:12:00 When I first started donating money to a charity, I was pretty much an average Joe.
I wasn’t looking for an extra $1,000 to help me survive.
I didn’t want to give more than I had to.
But the amount I was giving, I soon realised was nothing compared to what other people were doing.
I was seeing people giving hundreds of dollars a year.
For me, the idea of giving was more of a lifestyle choice.
I started to think about it.
There was this great idea that if you give, then you’re going to make someone’s day.
So I thought I would give to the homeless.
I had no idea what it was about giving that made it so good.
I started to realise there was so much that I loved about giving, and I was becoming a better person every time I gave.
When I started giving to a local homeless organisation, I realised that I had an incredible gift.
People are good at what they love.
They are good people.
And I love giving.
