OUR STORY

 

     We know what it means to face hardships. We know how it feels when the weight of the world seems to be on your shoulders. We know the power a helping hand can have, when you’re in a time of need. We know, because we’ve been on the other side.

 

SPIRIT

 

We believe this acronym paints the picture of who we are at Spirit Of Giving.

 

Share with those who are less fortunate, and in turn teach them how to sow positive change into the lives of others.

 

Philanthropy is a worthwhile effort, especially when directed towards a cause meant to educate, elevate, and eradicate negative influences in the lives of those who are deemed hopeless.

 

Inspire those who are outside of your sphere by lending them your ear. Once you’ve listened, allow their words to penetrate your heart; and then your influence will generate a new life start.

 

Respond in the way you’d want someone to respond to you. Be careful, caring, and cautious. Remember, we all know from where we have come, but none of us knows what lies ahead on our path.

 

Initiate a plan to help someone navigate their journey—because we’ve all lost our human compass at times.

 

Teach a person the life skills needed to thrive, they can then pass those along to the next individual, and so on.
