“Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.” ― Henry James
It feels good to give. Sure, giving back should be an altruistic, selfless notion, but the truth is that giving back is good for both the giver and the recipient. Studies even prove that there are amazing benefits to giving, whether you are taking on a regular volunteer position, donating money, or simply doing a random act of kindness.
Giving back is important to me. Growing up with a handicapped sibling, I saw the importance of volunteerism and paying it forward almost every day. Now that I am a parent, making sure that my kids are empathetic towards others is also extremely important to me.
After you read the reasons why it’s good to give, you may just take some time today to give to others!
