As we approach Thanksgiving Day, we count our blessings – family and friends, food to share, a warm place to sleep. Sometimes, the gifts we receive seem too good to be true. Sometimes, the abundance of our blessings is overwhelming, and the phrase “thank you” seems inadequate.
In the midst of gratitude, many of us begin to wonder “how can I respond?” or “how can I give back?” As Thanksgiving Day turns to Black Friday and then Cyber Monday, I am grateful that the internet has also brought us #givingtuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.
How will you live generously? I have been considering this topic of generosity in a series of interviews, asking “who inspired your generosity?” Here is our first video in this Generosity Project; an interview of Al Menke, telling the story of those who inspired his generosity.
