GIVING MORE

March 11, 2011

By Katrice


Like everyone else, I woke up this morning to news of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, and my mind has been reeling all day about what I can do to help. I've decided to make my first donation to the American Red Cross. I support different organizations every year with charitable donations but, before today, I have never been compelled to do so in a time of such great need. It's easy to sit back and watch others do it. But, sometimes, we need to bare some of the burden; and not just when the timing and scenario are ideal. The greatest giving is not when you have plenty to share. It is when you are able to take from your own lack, understanding that there is someone whose need is still greater.

  2. I heard on the radio this morning that we can text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. I thought, that's nifty.
