The wonder of giving

It’s said that giving makes us happier people.  We hope that you experience this to be true each time you give to help others through our services.

Part of the wonder of giving is that it’s universal whether it’s part of your practice in a faith, stems from your humanitarian concern, or is a personal expression of your compassionate heart.

Many words have been written about giving by people from all walks of life.  Here are just a few examples:

‘No one has ever become poor from giving.’  (Anne Frank)

‘Think of giving not as a duty, but as a privilege.’   (John D Rockefeller Jnr)

‘The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.’  (Mahatma Ghandi)

‘We all should give what we have decided in our hearts to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.  And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.’ (2 Corinthians 9:6-8)

‘The Prophet (pbuh) said: He is not a believer whose stomach is full, whilst his neighbour to his side goes hungry.’ (1, Ibn Abbas)

‘We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.’   (Winston Churchill)

‘To ease another’s heartache, is to forget one’s own.’  (Abraham Lincoln)

‘There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.’  (Kahlil Gibran)

Thank you for being someone who gives, and for all that you give.

The Response to Giving        

We’re always aware of how little we can offer you in return for your giving.  All we have is gratitude.

But that gratitude comes from a deep well, and is always heartfelt and sincerely given. Please accept our gratitude, and that of every person who is comforted, uplifted, and given hope by your generosity.

Thank you.
