Once again, Simplify is encouraging you to catch the spirit of Generosity this Christmas Season! In your Christmas gift box, you had an envelope with $50 cash with the charge to give it away. This is a great way to involve your family and kids in the true spirit of Christmas: that giving is way more fun than getting!
Make it a family activity to find new opportunities and creative ways to give!
After you give your $50 away, and we'll give you another $25 to give again. The hope on the second round is that you will match the $25 we give you with $25 of your own.
Post your story to the site here, and we'll put it up for Simplify folks to enjoy.
You can visit the I Like website to see the latest stories of this movement of generosity!
Simplify Staff Stories...
Between Christmas and New Years I took some time to address a few honey-due list items around the house. I found myself at Discount Tire early one Saturday morning. I was listening to the conversation of a customer is front of me with the clerk and then the manager. He needed 2 new front tires in a big way. The problem was the cheapest solution was about $40.00 more than he had. I was looking at the child wrapped around his fathers leg and though of the fear I would have of driving on very bad tires. I remembered the $50.00 and quickly dug through my wallet and found it. I held it up so only the manager could see it and the finger over my mouth. He got the message and said to the father that he found a way he could sell the tires for less. I was grateful that nothing was said. But I know that the manager and sales agent would think about it and the father could retain his sense of providing for the family.
