Giving feels good.
What can you to do to help someone in need?
My hubby turned the big 40 this week. Huge milestone for a great guy. ❤️ He has a rare B+ blood type, with only 10% of Australians with this kind of blood. He donates every few months and this is one of his very few selfie pics, in the name of a great cause. We encourage all those that can to donate to the Australian Red Cross Blood Service.
I think it’s one of the most generous things you can do to donate blood (I squirm at the sight of it so not an option for me) and when I asked hubby why he does it, he simply says it’s because he can and it’s his own unique way of giving back. He would hate to think that someone suffers that needs his rare blood type, when it takes very little time or effort for him donate.
Which got me thinking, there are many things we ‘can’ do and ‘can’ give without too much effort or impact, which not only help others in a big way, but make us feel good inside, too.
- Donate to a charity of your choice
