The Power of Giving
Posted on April 29 2016
Books have been written about it, workshops and conferences have been delivered to spread the word of it, films have been made about it and charities all over the world experience the profound result of it. It is the Power of Giving. In life, we go about our day-to-day activities from within our unique set of experiences, operating with the world view we have developed over the years. We are taught that in order to succeed we must gain wealth and status, big houses and cars, send our children to private schools and have regular overseas holidays.
But what happens when we give to others is remarkable. Sometimes we give as a result of societal expectation and more through a sense of obligation, but other times we feel passionate about giving and set out to really make someone other than ourselves feel special and valued. These are the times that people remember, the times that create lasting connections and a sense of real joy.
At Gifted Australia we love those moments and expressions. That’s why we do what we do. If you love what you’ve bought for someone through our store, take a photo of it and upload it to your social media pages with the hashtags #sharingit #lovingit to spread the message that giving is great. And check out the environment section of our website to see how we’re making a difference to the lives of others.
