Workplace Gifts

Growing the “Seed of Giving”
Everyday you are in contact with a number of people. These are the people you work with, your associates, your family, friends, neighbors, and the members of your church, mosque or place of worship. Give them an opportunity to contribute to a cause that is closest to your heart. Asking for help sometimes is a great gift in itself. Set a goal and raise that goal, within a specified time period, and you will encourage your “Seed of Giving” to grow and extend its branches as well.
