20 Days About Giving

giving is And so it begins…officially. 20 days about giving.

During this time, let’s move beyond just examining our lives for the gifts and blessings we have received. Let’s also look at those moments where we thought about giving, wanted to give or felt prompted to give, but didn’t act.

Let’s talk about the joys and the rewards of giving along with the effort and difficulty involved. Let’s talk about how the next 20 days are going to be different than normal for each of us. And let’s raise $20,000 for children in need this Christmas [3].


Consider these questions as a way to get started, then commit to participating in one or all of the activities we have going on.
