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...
I stopped for gas at a Kroger near my house early one morning and noticed a guy at the pump next to me struggling to dig change out of his center console. He was dressed up a bit, but his car looked like it had seen better days. I overheard him paying the attendant for $4.73 of gas. As he was filling up the tank I complimented his suit. He thanked me and said he was on his way to a job interview. $4.73 does not go far with gas prices these days, so his pump quickly shut off. I walked around to his side of the pump, said "here, let me top off your tank" and swiped my card. It took another $30 to fill up. Once full, he was shaking my hand, almost in tears, thanking me. I slipped him a $20 bill and said God has blessed me in my life, so I'm just passing it on. I wished him luck at his job interview and left.
