Webster's dictionary classifies embodiment as "a tangible or visible form of an idea, quality, or feeling." Giving is sometimes seen as "vague" simply because there are so many ways that we can give. We give pieces of ourselves to our family, our work, our friends, our passions...
And if you are ever lucky enough...to someone that you don't know or will never know.
Why is that form of giving the most deeply cherished?
Well, it's easy to give and do for the people that we know and care for. It's never easy to give yourself or your hard working funds over to someone that you have no ties to. But this action is the proof and embodiment of love and giving. It's because we don't have to do anything. We don't have to give anything. But we do so of our own free will never knowing what the outcome will be, but walking in faith and trusting that the outcome is just enough to make a positive difference.
This year for Giving Tuesday we have beautiful tumblers available for purchase. These tumblers will keep bellies full of good drink and hands warm when we feel the nip of an impending winter wind. But they will also keep so many hearts warm. Your own. And all of the recipients that your great gift helps.
To know they matter.
To understand they can do anything.
And to be the example of kindness that everyone talks about.
But do we act on the idea of giving?
Do we extend the kindness that has, over our lifetime, been so graciously offered to us?
I invite you to do this with Clark Pleasant Education Foundation today. Let us all be the tangible embodiment of giving.
Now, go forth and do great things.
