From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.
"Material treasures will serve us for a time and fade away. It is sharing ourselves and our time that creates authentic value; it enriches life with lasting expressions of gratitude and indelible memories. Giving opens our spiritual eyes to the many small blessings before us each moment."
--- Steve Brunkhorst ---

BACKGROUNDER
The JOY of GIVING and KARM MITRA movements in India were conceptualised and pioneered by the Founders of iCONGO in 2002 and began with their ground breaking work to ensure justice for the victims of the pogrom in Gujarat (Watch Video)
Sometimes a small thing you do can mean everything in another person's life rather than just giving a little money to. Please do not JUST give money as it does not make any change, get involved, give your time and effort to check the impact your giving is making and ask for accountability as that would ensure more impact than just giving a little money which is squandered mindlessly by aid agencies. Remember it is not mindless , arrogant charity but humble , involved social justice that is wanting in our world. - Jeroninio Almeida - Founder The JOY OF GIVING movement --
Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go. We cannot do great things on this Earth, only small things with great love. Remember It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.” - Mother Theresa
“One must be poor to know the luxury of giving. What do we live for if to make life less difficult for each other” - George Eliot
If you have much, give of your wealth; If you have little, give of your heart- Arab Proverb
Do not stand on a high pedestal and take 5 rupees in your hand and say, "here, my poor man", but be grateful that the poor man is there, so by making a gift to him you are able to help yourself. It is not the receiver that is blessed, but it is the giver. Be thankful that you are allowed to exercise your power of benevolence and mercy in the world, and thus become pure and perfect- Swami Vivekananda
When you learn, teach. When you get, give.-- Maya Angelou
You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give. Generosity is giving more than you can and pride is taking less than you need- Kahlil Gibran
No matter how bad you think your life, wake up each day and be thankful for what you have. Someone somewhere is fighting just to survive.- Unknown
You are not here merely to make a living, you are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself when you forget that errand.- Woodrow Wilson
Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself. - Og Mandino
