Sometimes we get so wrapped up in saving money that we lose sight of those around us who could use a helping hand. Times are tough for a lot of people right now. It’s a great time to step up and lend a hand, even if it’s simply through sharing something you already have. Being a giver doesn’t have to involve writing a big check or delivering an elaborately-wrapped plate of cookies. Cultivating a giving spirit means that we keep our eyes open to everyday needs around us.
This is where you come in.
You can participate in a couple of ways. If you’re a blogger, write a post about a way that you’ve been able to give. It can be something simple or something out-of-the-ordinary that you did. It can be something from this week or from last year. Don’t think of it as bragging… It’s a way to encourage others to take action and be more generous! A few guidelines for bloggers:
- Please add a link to Saving and Giving so that your readers can find everyone’s ideas all in one place.
- Make sure the link that you add here takes people directly to your A Time to Give post, not the main page of your blog. To do that, publish your post, view your blog, right click on the title, and copy the shortcut. Then paste that shortcut in as your URL here.
- Bloggers who link to other posts or their main pages will have their links removed. This eliminates confusion for others who are looking for ideas on how to give.
- Please do not link to giveaways, contests, or ads.
- Feel free to use the image above in your post. It’s not mandatory, but you’re welcome to it!
If you’re not a blogger, you can participate too! Simply click the comments link below this post, and leave your ideas there. I would love to hear from you!
If you have any questions about A Time to Give, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com. I look forward to being inspired by your ideas on giving! And stop back each Thursday for a new edition of A Time to Give.
