The Gift That Keeps on Giving
by Jill MacGregor
You lucky bastard.
You heard me, you magnificent, lucky bastard.
I know you may be having some tough times right now. Maybe you feel alone. Forgotten. Disconnected. Powerless. Unable. Heartsick. Overwhelmed. Unrecognized. Lost in the situation you find yourself.
But you’re also loved. There are people who think you are cool and are amazed by the things you do. All your little acts of kindness—they become seeds in the wind and they end up taking root in the most surprising places—and you’ll probably never know about all the good you’ve done.
Think about all the things people don’t even know about you—you, who keep your light under a bushel far too often. Maybe today’s the day to bring that out into the light. I wonder what would change if you did.
There is no one like you. You with your multitude of gifts.
I’m going to offer you an opportunity to share your gifts. What do you say…why not harness all your goodness, take a moment and make a change for the world.
Visit Kiva . This is your opportunity. You can make a difference in people’s lives—your engagement with Kiva will become your seeds in the wind–but you will know exactly where those seeds take root and how they will affect change.
It’s amazing when your goodness and your power work together.
Kiva distributes micro-loans to entrepreneurs in developing countries. It’s easy to forget how a small amount of money can do so much in developing countries—Twenty five dollars makes a huge difference to these entrepreneurs in hitting their financial goals and moving themselves and their families toward independence. So easy…miss a happy hour. The nut will be covered.
What would it feel like to help someone in such a significant way? Someone needs your help. Giving will allow you to feel connected and help you realize the power you do possess to truly make a change.
You are so amazing.
You magnificent, lucky bastard.
