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...
On Sunday in Tulsa it was 18 degrees, felt like 4 degrees outside. I was headed to Target for some groceries and noticed a woman and her son (probably around the age of 7) sitting on a bench outside. The boy did not have a coat, and it was literally freezing outside. So I ran inside and bought a nice thick Batman themed winter coat for the boy, and a batman figurine to match. (Because if it's 4 days after Christmas and he didn't have a coat, I doubt he had a very nice Christmas...and every kid should get at least 1 toy for Christmas) I asked the Target 'cart guy' to go give it to them anonymously, so I could enjoy their reactions from a distance. The mom looked greatful for the coat, and of course the boy was more interested in the batman toy!
