12 Days of Giving

Some people give time, some money, some their skills and connections, some literally give their life's blood. But everyone has something to give. ~ Barbara Bush

Do the words you just read resonate with you?

It is more blessed to give than to receive. ~ Jesus, Acts 20:35

Exactly! It is more blessed to give than to receive. Never am I happier than when I can give to others ... whether it be giving my time, giving my money or giving my skills.

I have decided to challenge the blogging community in 12 Days of Giving.

For the first 12 days of December, let's give! Let's inspire others by sharing how we give. Whether it be donating an old pair of glasses, volunteering at a homeless shelter or buying something for someone in need ... all of it matters.

What do you have to give?

I invite you to participate with me in the 12 Days of Giving on your own blog! Here is what you need to do ...

1. Enter your blog address in the MckLinky widget below. You only need to do this once ... the widget will remain ongoing here on my blog throughout the entire 12 Days of Giving.

2. Each day, for the first 12 days of December, write a 12 Days of Giving post on your blog, inspiring us in how you gave that day.

3. Add the 12 Days of Giving button to each of your posts by grabbing the code and inserting it into your blog.

4. Finally, click over to everyone else's blogs and be inspired!

If you don't have a blog, but would like to participate ... feel free to leave a comment on my blog telling us your story ... I'm so excited to be completely inspired by all of you!


  1. Your butoon has copy right protection. I'm unable to copy it to post.

  2. I hope you don't mind...I used the Barbara Bush quote in my fb status!

  3. Love the idea! A few days late, but I finally got my post up :)

  4. Great idea! I might not be able to make all 12 days, but I'd like to do as much giving as I can!

  5. I love this. I actually started something like this (with the same name!) last year with my family. I've linked to your blog from mine, hope you don't mind. Good luck with your 12 days!
