Working in the nonprofit sector is not new to me. But now that I am back in the charity saddle, I have to say that the topic of charity is an interesting one. During my past two weeks on the job I’ve heard everything from “Our company doesn’t donate because we are into making a profit,” to “I’m not coming to your event because Obama is using my tax money to support his favorite causes and I refuse to donate while he is in office.”
Whether you give to friends or family members who are in need, or you give through a charitable organization, it is equally good. You should feel great about yourself. Give to support what you care about. Take care of those around you. Then, watch patiently and you will see your kindness multiply in ways you could never imagine.
