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 recently saw a story online where a Secret Santa went to Walmart and paid off customer's layaway balances for Christmas. I thought this was a great idea and decided this is what I would do with my $50. I went to Walmart one day after work and told the customer service rep that I needed to pay on a layaway account. Of course, the associate asked for my account info. I told her that I didn't have an account myself - I wanted her to pick a random account that included primarily toys. She looked a little surprised for a minute but pulled up an account and applied the $50. While this was on a much smaller scale than the story I read online, I hope that it made a child's Christmas a little brighter and eased the parents financial burden at the same time!
