Generous people give what they have, whether that is money, time, skills, influence, or goods and services.
When confronted with the struggles or problems of others, their first response is to explore their own resources for what they can contribute. These are the people who ask, “How can I help”, but far more often to state, “Here’s what I have to give.” Often, the most generous people are the ones working in the background. They are the contributors. The supporters. The ones holding others up and keeping things moving in the right direction. They are the volunteers at schools and organizations, the coworkers always ready to lend a hand, the neighbors offering lifts and shovelling driveways. Generous women offer their skills and expertise to help make things happen. They work tirelessly to support good causes. They reach out when help is needed and play enormous roles in keeping communities, organizations, businesses and even individuals running at their best.
We celebrate generous women for being the backbone of our society, never expecting anything in return and showing us all how powerful even the simplest act of generosity can be.
