What’s the first thing you want to do when you receive incredible news? You reach out to someone who’s important to you to share. What do you do when something terrible happens? Hopefully, you reach out to a loved one for support.
We rely on people around us for emotional support, be it for good or bad times. As much as this need for connection is ingrained in us, it also goes the other way.
As human beings, we have the innate need to contribute to those around us. Whether it comes in the form of something small like being there for a friend in need or something massive like contributing financially to a worthwhile cause, we realize the importance of giving.
The importance of giving to others can’t be understated and that’s because the secret to living is giving. If you really think about it, what is life all about? Creating meaning. How do you create meaning in your life? It’s not about what you do for yourself: It’s about how you’re able to better the lives of the people around you – your loved ones, the people in your community or the lives of people somewhere else in the world.
Throughout the year and each quarter we like to donate to a special cause to show our community that support and realize the importance of giving to others. During the 1st & 2nd quarter we donated to the La Porte County Animal Shelter and raised $400.00! During the month of August we will raise money and donate school supplies to our local community schools. During our Grand Opening we raised $220.00 for the Independent Cat Society and $225.00 to 4-H!
