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...
The Friday before Christmas I dropped my daughter off at daycare and her normal teacher wasnt there. The substitute said my daughters teacher would be in late today because she had been picked to receive gifts from the Angel tree. Thats when I found out that the woman that takes care of my daughter every day has 3 kids under the age of 10 and had been having a hard time this year. Thats when I decided who to give the money too. At lunch I got her a Christmas card and put the money in it. When I picked up my daughter that evening I gave her the card. I hope the money I gave her can help her and her kids have a nice Christmas. The following Monday when I dropped my daughter off at daycare her teacher gave me a card. Inside she thanked me for the gift and said how much she appreciated it.
