What does investing look like?
- Giving back –
- Giving beyond -
o One of my favorite organizations to give money to each year is the Arkansas Food Bank. For every $1 that you give them, they can provide 4 meals. So, the $8 above could provide 32 meals – that’s more than 3 meals a day for 1 week for 1 person.
o Another organization that I like to invest in is World Vision. Their gift catalog is something that I keep on my home office desk all year long. They have lots of options and as someone who likes to give creative gifts, I love that it allows me to be creative, meet needs and honor friends. I mean where else can you feed in the US and oversees? Where else can you “buy” a beehive, peanut butter or a duck? Think of all the possibilities for loving your loves.
