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...
About a week before Christmas I went to Crazy Town (also known as the mall) to pick up the last few items on my list. The traffic leaving the mall was unreal and I decided to take the long way around to avoid some of the traffic. Normally I would not have gone this way, but I am really glad I did. As I was winding my way through the side streets there was a car on the side of the road with a young couple. Even as I drove past I could see the young woman in the driver seat was very upset. The front tire of the car was bent out at an awkward angle. I knew I was meant to give to her. As I handed her the money I told her it looked like she was having a really bad day and that I hoped this would help make it better. I have to say the look of total astonishment on her face made me feel like she was not accustomed to people doing nice things for her. I told her to have a Merry Christmas and drove away.
