Donations are just as meaningful for givers as well as receivers

My Facebook post today:

On Monday, one of my daughters and I drove to a women’s and children’s shelter to donate 20 of my color care packages. I don’t want to mention the charity, but want to thank them for their genuine enthusiasm and gratitude.

Making these kind of donations makes me feel happier with the world and its difficulties. Making these care packages, knowing they are going to people in need, lightens my heart and makes me want to give more.

There are so many deserving people out there that rely on charitable donations. Circumstances may be very difficult, but I’m hoping my small contributions are a distraction from daily stresses and that these packages provide some measure of relief.
