This year 2016 Christmas, we plan to raise S$10,000 as private donation for the young cancer patients and their families. The collected funds will be handed over to “Children Cancer Foundation”. We hope that our young beneficiaries and their families will feel encouraged and feel the emotional support through this fundraising demonstration – that someone cares !
Did you know that the word, GENEROSITY, five centuries ago was the description of elite nobility? Today, even an ordinary person can cultivate the admiral personal quality and taking action to be generous. Being generous does not always involve money; for example, a simple smile for a stranger is an act of generosity. Sharing your time, with the elderly, charitable organizations and others are examples of non-monetary generosity. You can also think about what else you can give in terms of time, talent and resources that you are blessed with.
You can add more generosity into your life and the lives of others by thinking about the generous people you have known or heard about. Think about what you would like to have such as attention, respect, love, praise. gifts or money, and then think of others who might benefit from you sharing these things as well. Other ways to daily express generosity include: giving to charity, sharing random acts of kindness, tipping well, and giving people more than they expect. You can act on a generous impulse that comes to mind. Whatever you do may seem insignificant, but it is important to take action. Follow Guru Nike’s advise “Just do it!”
