Today is Giving Tuesday … a global initiative designed to promote giving.
This time of year in particular is a good time to think about YOUR contributions to our society.
We live in a great country.
We enjoy many freedoms that are not available in other countries.
We have a fantastic standard of living compared to the majority of people in the world.
Ours is a benevolent society … we try to look after the weak, the sick and the elderly.
Our society does this in two ways … through government initiatives and through charitable endeavors.
Those charitable endeavors rely on the generosity of Canadians that are in a position to give … whether that is money or time.
Whether you are a spiritual person or just a good citizen, it is the right thing to do. It is part of why our society works.
Do something selfless this holiday season and know that you have made a positive contribution to our society! If you can turn that gift into a way of living your life you will also learn to understand that giving is actually a great way to feel good about yourself!
