Become a Friend

Ever wonder who you can really give to and know that your money is being used to really help others and not going to fund some organizations big salaries? We did too. So years ago we looked into this and found some really good places to give money and time to. These places use your money to help others not themselves. If you ever have a question about how an organization uses their funds, use this organization to check them out.  Click here to visit Charity Navigator. They rate organizations by how much is actually spent to help others not themselves.


Below are a few we trust.


Sorry we are not listed since everyone involved in the Giving Principle volunteers their time and donate funds to keep GP up and running. And no, we are not even a 501-C (non-profit) because we are not looking to give… for a tax write off. We don’t need or want your funds. Give elsewhere.


Getting out of debt


To give more you have to have more to give… right. The best way to do that is to get yourself out of debt. This in itself is such a great way to live. Most of your big bills are gone and ohhh how freeing this is to the human mind. And yes it is possible. Millions of people live this way and live a much better life than those under mounds of monthly debt.

Here are the tools to become debt free.


We recommend Dave Ramsey’s radio program and his website resources. His listening/teaching DVDs are the BEST!

Having a Healthy Perspective/Attitude

Get rid of that ‘woe is me’ attitude that you may be carrying around. No one is better at teaching and living this stuff then Nick Vujicic. And he has a right to say ‘woe is me’, but he doesn’t.

Recommended Hollywood movies on giving.
