The Give Initiative

It's easy to get caught up in our own lives, and to take what we have for granted. I know during the holiday season the mood strikes many of us to give to others. Our family tries to give Christmas to a deserving family every year. Sometimes this means we buy gifts. Sometimes we give money. Sometimes we do it anonymously and sometimes not.

But do you ever think that it would be nice to give to other people sometime during the year? When other people forget about it?

How many times have you heard a story of someone you know, or don't know, and thought to yourself, "I wish there was something that I could do to help." But you didn't want to intrude, or butt in? You didn't know how best to help? You felt like what you had to give was not quite enough, and didn't want to feel shamed that it wasn't more? I know I have felt this way many times.

The Give Initiative is an incredible, non-profit company that allows you to give to others. Anonymously. You simply tell them who you'd like to contribute to, and they make it happen. ALL. YEAR. ROUND. Isn't this an amazing concept? But if you feel like giving, and don't know who could use some help, they have a solution for that too.

Head on over and check them out. See what they are about, and hey, if you can, give a little something.

The Give Initiative, give anonymously

Thank you so much for posting this, what a cool organization! We find someone every year to help, but it is so hard to stay anonymous in a small town. I am excited to check these guys out!
