My friend is participating in a walkathon to raise money for cancer research. Should I pledge $50 or $100?
The service at the local diner was good, but not great. Should I tip 15% or 20%?
I am buying a bottle of wine for my friend’s birthday. Should I buy the $15 bottle that looks okay, or the $25 bottle I know is great?
Pledge the $100, tip 20%, and buy the $25 bottle of wine.
Generosity is an act of self confidence. When we are generous, we signal to ourselves that we will be okay, even if we have a little less money.
Generosity cultivates gratitude. When we are generous, we often feel grateful for the abundant blessings in our own lives.
Being generous is fun. It feels good to help another person.
When in doubt, be generous.
