One of our Facebook fans recently shared this inspiring quote from Gandhi with us: “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
Here at Talk About Giving, we’ve been reflecting on this quote for the last few days because it is so powerful and true. Take a moment to think about the times when you have given your time, energy, and support to serve others: aren’t those moments some of your most rewarding and fulfilling? As parents, we have the opportunity to share that experience with our children. More
We’d like to tell you a story. Once, there was a terribly messy little girl. Despite numerous prodding from her mother, she couldn’t seem to keep her clothes in the closet or her toys put away. One afternoon, her frustrated mother finally announced: “If your stuff isn’t cleaned up by this afternoon, we’re giving it away to other little girls who don’t have the things they need.”
When the mother came back later to check on her daughter’s progress, she was stunned to see the room clean and bare—and her daughter’s toys, clothes, and books stuffed into big bags. “I have lots of stuff, Mommy,” the daughter explained. “I want to give my things to the kids who don’t have anything.”
