Give A Damn: Day Seven A Week Of Holiday Giving To Women In Need

Give a damn. On our last day of giving, we bring giving uncomfortably close to home, to our circle of family, friends, neighbors, peers and acquaintances.

Yes, give money, give time but give a damn. In our busy lives, we often bypass the one gift that is priceless. The gift of ourselves. The gift of caring.

Nowadays, people are far away from those they love, holiday time can be lonely or evoke a sense of sadness.

Showing that we care by being present and acknowledging those in our lives, is such a simple way to give someone joy. It is stress-free giving that gifts the giver too. If you need any more convincing, the currency of you is inexpensive and easy on the pocketbook.

Take time to reconnect with a friend, stop by a neighbor, text your grandchild, call up your daughter-in-law and tell her what a good job she is doing, reminisce with your sister, write a snail mail card or letter, buy the person behind you in the line-up a coffee, smile, and say hello to everyone you meet, slow dance with your significant other, tell someone how much you appreciate them in your life, drop a poinsettia off to a shut-in.

And make a note to not forget the ones you find hard to love or to appreciate. They often need it the most. If that seems impossible, you will find this article from Contributor Janyse Hrnkow MA CCC helpful.
