Matthew 5:42a – When people ask you for something, give it to them.

Gratitude Day 815

Are you a giver or a receiver?

Do you prefer to give gifts? Or receive them?

I am a giver. I HIGHLY prefer to give something to another person than receive something. Even as a young girl and friends would come to my birthday party, I always felt intimidated when it came time to open the gifts. Quietly, I wished we could just skip this part of the party. That is how uncomfortable I was with receiving gifts.

Even today, it gives me much more joy and happiness to share something with someone who I know than have something given to me. Hubby Rick and I really don’t exchange gifts. And we are perfectly fine with this arrangement.

So, when you think of giving, our March non-profit organization for Our Monthly Resolution is PERFECT for givers. Really, anyone, but especially for givers.

Giving Is Good is a non-profit organization based in Green Bay, WI. This organization has been recommended to my friend Stacie and I more than once. And we’re excited to have Giving Is Good as our feature organization throughout the month of March.

Their goal is to get good things into the hands of people who need them. They offer a

variety of different programs. Specifically, the Our Monthly Resolution funds will go towards their Care Package program. These packages include a plastic box container that is decorated and filled with gifts, fun, candy and useful items. It is either mailed or delivered to the person(s) in need. People are nominated to be considered and boxes are given out year around and specifically to anyone who needs some joy in their lives.

The program has been successful in 2020, when over 150 care packages were distributed.

We continue to be amazed and humbled by the support and donations that are made. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!

Giving and receiving are both good. May you embrace your giving side and support Giving Is Good and their care package home.

For the opportunity to give to people who have specific needs, I am grateful.

Blessings –

Lord Go – You are the ultimate given, when you gave your son for our benefit. May we embrace your model of giving and share our resources with those who truly have needs. Amen.
