Giving = Happiness
If you’re like me - not short & bald - but if you’ve realized the joy that comes from Giving and if you’re a Giving personand very passionate about helping Causes that are important to you… then I believe you’ve come to the right place. Every day… every single day, I wake up and want to make things better for people (especially family, close friends, and coworkers), pets/animals, the environment, and the world. But right about the time that thought finishes running through my head (a very short trip as most of my friends would say), I begin to feel overwhelmed. inadequate. limited. I mean, seriously - what can I do? When you really think about it, there’s not much any one of us can do to make a huge impact in any corner of the world. Here’s what I’m getting at…What if instead, we asked, “What can we do (i.e. together, as a team, as a Community)?” Hmmm… now the inadequacies are removed. Now we’re thinking limitless possibilities. I’m sure you’ve heard this before: strength in numbers, crowdfunding, ‘many hands make light work’, and other similar thoughts actually do make sense. In fact, more than making sense, they’re true and they work. But more (of the same resource) is seldom the solution to every need.Each of us has different gifts, skills, talents, financial means, physical abilities, time availability, personal and business connections, etc. - each of which on its own is often not enough. Each of us can’t do everything. After all, even lots of money isn’t a solution in and of itself (think about it - money still requires people to do something with it, so which is more important and useful - the money or the people using it effectively? - that’s obviously a rhetorical question) I ask you to consider this - that each spoke in a wheel is just as important and necessary as all the others are - everyone doing what they enjoy doing and are able to do makes a considerable difference.So, what am I getting at? I’m sure you already know where I’m going with this. The foundation of GivingConnected is built on the principle that ‘many different hands’ together will accomplish much and meet the needs of the world. I truly believe that everyone, and I mean everyone, can do something. And it’s a good thing that we all can’t offer the same thing - different ingredients are needed for so many things in life. It’s with these thoughts in mind that (with God’s help) this site was created. We need each other - and the resources and diversity we each bring to the table - in order to meet the many needs in our world and especially each corner of our own part of the world. GivingConnected was designed to provide everyone the tools we find useful and engaging to raise awareness and help and support the Causes we are most passionate about (see Features). Many tools are available to help Causes save money and even raise money (see here). Together, we as individuals, business owners, managers, employees, Pastors, musicians, artists, missionaries, teachers, medical experts, scientists, brand managers, celebrities, and others - can make an immeasurable difference in making each other’s world a better place.I personally want to thank you for visiting GivingConnected, and ask you to dream big - very big - about the difference a community full of Giving People like you can make, especially in your world… Every day… In many ways. I have dreamed big during the many years of developing this site: it’s often what has kept me going - realizing the collective impact that Giving and Generosity can make in this hurting world. It’s exciting to be a part of that!I invite you to join in - in whatever way you’re able to help. You are needed. Whatever you offer is valuable to others. Together let’s show how kindness, goodness, generosity, and selflessness make the world a much better place. I guarantee you (with every ounce of my being - which includes a few extra these days) that putting others first, and cultivating a giving, generous attitude will not only make a difference throughout the world, but also to you personally (there’s nothing like the ‘high’ felt when helping others - yes, there’s actually a book written about this - ask me about it sometime). Trust me - you’ll feel great about yourself. A generous heart, as well as actively Giving and serving others will truly make a wonderful, joyful, worthwhile difference in your life (and yes, the lives of other people too). Together, let’s help each other make a difference that exceeds even our wildest expectations. Let’s serve each other, help each other, and be the blessing each of us was put here to be.Warm regards,g. spenserServe. Find Your Mission. Deepen Your Purpose.Find your gift - and then Give it away :)
