It is only in giving of oneself to others that we truly live.”

Ethel Percy Andrus

Consider the impact you want to have on the world, and the legacy you wish to leave when you are gone. Being charitable doesn’t have to cost a lot. It doesn’t have to cost anything at all, in fact. And it shouldn’t be a chore. It is simply how you choose to make a difference every day.

Decide what giving back looks like to you. It could mean volunteering at a charity, or mentoring and tutoring – or something simple as recycling, teaching a grandchild to ride a bike, or giving a meal to a homeless child.

Whether your contribution is large or small, whenever you make a difference in the life of someone else, you are giving back. You can enrich your own life by creating today what you want to be remembered for tomorrow. Give-back in a way that resonates with you.

Giving to others and our world is the greatest gift we can give ourselves and future generations.
