15th of June is the Worldwide Day of Giving. It is a special day that was started on this date in 2010 as part of the founding year of Reed’s Year of Giving.
To celebrate this day, you could give your time to a friend, family member or stranger. Or you could buy a stranger a meal. The list is endless. With so much going on in the world, sometimes, we forget that the smallest things can have the biggest impact. There are many benefits of giving: lower blood pressure, increased self-esteem, less depression, lower stress levels and longer life.
‘For it is in giving that we receive.’ St Francis of Assisi
‘Happiness does not result in what we get, but from what we give.’ Ben Carson.
‘In this world of give and take, one must learn what it takes to give.’
Dr. Hazem Barmada
