Living Philanthropic

While walking my dog this morning, I came across a group of college students with a breakfast stand, raising money for the music program at their school. I had plenty of doggie bags but no money so I went out of my way to walk home and return with money to purchase breakfast for $1 and leave a $19 donation.

Normally, I wouldn’t have bothered to return. I would have said, “I’m sorry. I don’t have any cash on me.” BUT, yesterday, I stumbled across a post on Tumblr with a link to LIving Philanthropic. The post encourages you to attach #giveeveryday to your donations, thus inspiring others to give to charitable causes each day of the year. I love this. Of course, I don’t know that I’m organized enough to keep track of it for an entire year but I definitely want to make this my Lenten sacrifice for 2015. It will be 40 days of giving. I plan to donate to a different charity each day. I’m even putting this on my calendar so that I cannot forget. Perhaps, when our last child has graduated college, I can make it 365 days of giving. In the meantime, I’ll do my best to attach the appropriate hashtag.
