What the Bible says about giving
We receive feedback from many of you that
have began to use these simple ageless
principles. We also hear from those that
have been helped and are grateful that
someone gave to them. Because so many
comments are received we cannot possibly
post them all. Here are a few.
Thank you so much for your simple beautiful
website! We use these principles each week.
It is so much fun to give!
Someone helped me and now Iím giving back
and passing it on. Thank you!
I love this practical giving concept. Iíve
always been a giver but now I always include
a Giving Principle business card with my
gifts. It keeps on giving and is what was
missing from my giving for many years. Thank
you Giving Principle.com!
What a beautiful website! I love and use the
simple ideas each week. I look forward to
reading your newsletter each week for more
Like most people, I used to subscribe to the
Getting Principle. It was hard for me to
begin giving to others especially in secret
- without the recognition. I forced myself
to begin this and a strange thing happened.
It was so much FUN!!!! Now Iím hooked and
life is no longer about getting more and
more and my climb to the top of the ladder.
I no longer worry about those things any
longer. Donít get me wrong, I still look
forward to getting stuff for me. Itís just
that it has lost its grip on me and I now
enjoy what I get more! It works. I challenge
anyone who has been given a Giving Principle
card to just try it like I did once. Thank
Itís one of the most powerful feelings/highs
in the world to be used for a moment to be a
miracle in someone elseís life. What was
always missing was getting that someone else
to catch the miracle of giving back. With
the Giving Principle cards this is
accomplished. Thanks for making this
A year ago around Christmas I was in to a
local Gamestop checking the price of an Xbox 360
game my son wanted. I phoned home and told him I
couldn't afford it. When I left the shop a man
followed me. When I got into my car he tapped on my
window rolling it down he asked "What game did you
want?" I told him and he said okay wait a minute. So
I waited. He went into the store and came back out
handed me a bag with the game in it and a gift card
for $50 to give to my son. This was the greatest
gift. I don't know who the young man was but thank
that angel every day for his kind generosity.
We have annually secretly helped others who had
needs. It has brought immense joy to us as we saw
these people asking around to see who the secret
Santa was. Remaining anonymous has brought us so
much joy and we look forward to doing more this
We love this site and its ideas! With
the Giving Principle card, when I
give the card away with my volunteer
time or money, I know it
will truly be a gift that keeps on
giving over and over again.
Love every ones ideas on the giving
When I began giving to others in secrete
as your website has suggested I found it
hard to do. I thought it would be easy.
My first tries were failures and I
didnít even follow through on my
original plans. I have found all of this
takes practice and a bit of clever
tricks. Iíve found that I got better at
it over time and Iím glad I didnít give
up. Iím now a professional and I am
constantly looking and thinking of new
ways to give.
The best thing Iíve found is that
instead of always thinking about my
problems and what I want I am more
focused on how I can be constantly on
the looking to help someone else out.
People ask me ďwhatís upĒ because Iím
happier and excited now. I know this
will sound weird but I feel closer to
I encourage everyone to give your Giving
skills time to grow
I hope more people become professionals.
It is sooooo much fun!
Your website has been very helpful.
Giving Principle Thank you for what you
are promoting. Itís nice to see an
organization out there not looking to
see what they can get. Someone handed me
a $20.00 bill recently with a Giving
Principle card clipped to it. They must
have known times have been hard for my
husband and me. I donít know who they
were but the thought and the money has
been a boost lately. And when I went to
your website I was encouraged again and
loved the two inspiring videos! Thank
you so much!
