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 have a friend who was homeless and now serves the homeless everyday. I often meet with him and we do different activities together and he is known by many of the homeless people in Houston. One day we were talking about Mondays, the day he helps them get jobs. He said Tuesday is $1 chk breast at Popeye's Chicken and wished it could be on Monday when all those people are hungry. I met him after asking him to just invite them the next day and there stood almost 50 people at Popeye's in Houston. I was able to feed every single one of them for the $50. I couldn't believe how far that $50 went and how it effected almost 50 different people. That was fun! Thank you Simplify!
