THE “WHAT WHY & HOW” OF GENEROSITY

From THE VIRTUES PROJECT Educator’s Guide

WHAT IS GENEROSITY?

Generosity is giving and sharing. It is giving freely because you want to, not with the idea of receiving a reward or a gift in return. Generosity is being aware that there is plenty for everyone. It is seeing a chance to give what you have and then giving just for the joy of giving. It is one of the best ways to show love and friendship.

WHY PRACTICE GENEROSITY?

Without generosity, people act uncaring, refusing to share their belongings, their time, and their friendship. People who need help feel helpless because no one will give them what they need. When we give freely, especially if a sacrifice is involved, out spirit grows strong. When one is person is generous, other people want to be generous too,

HOW DO YOU PRACTICE GENEROSITY?

When you are generous, you think of ways to share what you have. You think about what people need and do things to give them happiness. You share your time, your ideas, your things, or your money. When you give away something that is really special to you, that is a very generous way to show love. If feels good to give freely, just for the sake of giving.
