Why I give

“On giving, wow, what a win-win! I get so much more from giving than I put into it – so it’s an easy equation to formulate. I give because I believe it is my spiritual and societal obligation to share in the good fortune I have been blessed with. I give because I am grateful for my ability to give, and the act of giving honors that privilege. I also give because I get tremendous personal satisfaction from knowing I am able to make a difference in the lives of someone who has had less opportunities than me. Many have heard me say it, but I truly believe it, when asked how I’m doing, the answer is “much better than I deserve!”
