Why give back? We need each other.
Singing another’s praises is a selfless act. We don’t live on this planet alone and when we do something for someone else we step out of ourselves for a brief moment. We are no longer thinking of ourselves…we are putting another first. How glorious a place is that!
We need each other. Being able to give back to those in need provides a great sense of personal satisfaction and growth; it feels good to raise up others. You can honor another person or the memory of a person, celebrate a life event, or pay tribute to a woman who was touched by a cause by contributing to a specific charity.
