Giving Produces Happiness & Gratitude

No one has ever become poor by giving.

–Anne Frank

Sometimes we are tempted to hold back and not be as generous as we might be capable of being.  Fear may cause our hesitation. Uncertainty of the future might cause us pause.

However, for those who are willing to step out in faith and trust God with their well-being, I have seen amazing life-change.  God gave to us and He has given us the choice to give to others. 

Giving produces gratitude and happiness.  What a powerful tool we have in our hands!  It really doesn’t matter the amount, it is the level of sacrifice that produces the biggest return for each of us.  And, when we know that our sacrifice is valued, appreciated and treated with great care and respect, it is icing on the cake!

I want to wish you and your family a special Christmas season.  I want to thank you for your encouragement and support throughout 2019.  And, I want to ask you to make a tax deductible year-end gift to the work of Gleaning.  Together, we can make our world a little better place to live as we give a hand up to those who are suffering this month.

As you prepare to give this month to family, friends and to those who are less fortunate, I hope you will consider entrusting Gleaning For The World with a special gift. Your gift will be used by our team to share God’s love with those who are facing their greatest challenges. Together, we can make a difference! 

In service and partnership,

Jeane Smiley-Mason
