Happiness is created by giving

16 November 2012, 18:55

Ever heard the term money doesn't make life easier, but makes it a lot easier?

But how about making you happy?

Money doesn't make you happy... but there is something that will... IT'S CALLED GIVING!

The Gift of giving is something unique, its contagious and once you start and see the diffrence you make you will want to do more and more.

So while we all wait for our salary to be paid in so we can SPEND IT... Take a minute and think... WHO CAN I HELP BY GIVING???

Who are the people that seem to be forgotten, who are the people that do not have a voice?  The needy, elderly and young.

So this might not be a new idea, but has changed the way I give... I give openly and freely with this idea of a BLESSING IN A BAG.

These very basic items are the luxuries most needy persons do not have.

So why not start small by making some BLESSING BAGS and keeping them in the car and hand them out to people you see that are in need - IT'S AMAZING TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE ONE BAG AT A TIME.

ZIPLOCK BAG with:

Soap, washcloth, deodarant, toothpaste, toothbrush and some sweeties.

Seems like so little - try it and make a difference.

I am appealing to persons to assist in creating BLESSING BAGS for 2 Charities I am working with - If you can assist contact me claudette1985@hotmail.com
