“It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
― Mother Theresa
"National Give Something Away Day" was created to provide people and communities the opportunity to share blessings without expectations or limitations.'' In 2015, Linda Eaton Hall-Fulcher announced the day to help all those less fortunate.
GSSA is celebrating all week! :)
Ways to Give
Donate to a shelter
Donate to a local food pantry
Drop off water to the homeless
Linda Eaton Hall-Fulcher declared this day is about giving back to other people and to the world at large and also being mindful of the way we consume.
Today is the perfect opportunity to clean out your home and give the things you no longer need to those who are less fortunate. Many of us have things around our home that we no longer need so why not clean out the house and give these items to those who need them the most?
Why National Give Something Away Day is Important
Giving something away is a great way to spread kindness and generosity.
When we give to others, it makes us feel good inside knowing that we’ve made someone else’s day better and makes the world better!
It provides people the opportunity to give rather receive.
This day reminds us to step out of our comfort zone and make someone else's day better!
