Remember that feeling? That’s what we are talking about! What if you used your life to do just that – often.

Living the Giving Lifestyle

Try this…decide that you want to become more of a giving person.

  • Determine each week / month how much you are going to give away. Print out some Giving Principle cards and look and watch for people in need.

  • Next look for someone to give to. You will find your paths will connect with someone in need. You can give cash or a gift or food or your time and talents. You decide what is best for the situation. Always include with the gift, a Giving Principle card. So this principle has a chance to do for others what it is now doing in your life. That Christmas feeling each week!

 Here are a few suggestions on how to give.

  • First try to give in secret. Place money in an envelope with a short note and a Giving Principle card.

  • If you decided to give a gift, wrap it beautifully like a Christmas gift and leave it when the person is not around. Sometimes this can be done in person, depending on the situation.

  • After you practice giving principles again and again… more seems to just come back to you. It’s a weird and strange thing but it happens.

  • This is a simple concept. The toughest part is beginning the lifestyle. We promise… it will change your perspective on life!
