Today is National Recycle Day but also National Philanthropy Day. What better way to recycle than to donate to someone in need or to a place that helps people in need? I have a box sitting in the dining room half full already. As I make my way through the day I will see if I can finish filling that box with more things that would be better donated than kept unused.
I'm grateful for this reminder to clean out. I'm grateful for a day to remind me to practice philanthropy and to model it for my daughter. I'm grateful to do what I can in the form of donating stuff I do not need but someone else might. I'm grateful to be so blessed as to have an abundance of stuff and I'm even more grateful to clear some of it out. I'm grateful to ask myself, "who needs this more?"
What could you recycle today? What could you donate?
May today fill us with a spirit of generosity. May we take care of our earth and our fellow humans. Have a beautiful day!
