THE SPIRIT OF GIVING
The true Spirit of giving is doing for others with no expectation of gain. It might be a gift you bought, one you made or the gift of time to benefit others. Giving means different things to different people.

Day 1 – Smile and be friendly! Sometimes the simplest little things can put a warm feeling in someone else’s heart and make their day a little better.
Day 2 – Teach! Take the time to teach someone anew skill you know. This could be teaching your grandma to use email or your co-worker a valuable computer skill.
Day 3 – Send a nice email! Just a quick note telling someone how much you appreciate them for something they did can go a long way.
Day 4 – Show appreciation publicly! Praising someone on a blog, in front of a coworker or family member is a great way to make them feel better about themselves.
Day 5 – Be patient! Sometimes people can have difficulty understanding things or learning to do something right. Learn to be patient with them.
Day 6 – Call a charity to volunteer! Volunteering is one of the most amazing things you can do.
Day 7 – Stop to help! The next time you see someone in need of help, stop and ask how you can help.
