What if you gave $10 to that guy that smiles outside the Starbucks?
What if you gave $100 tip to the waitress at the diner?
What if you gave $1000 to your church in cash in an envelope?
What if you gave all of your giving in cash with no acknowledgement, with no recognition, with no tax benefit, with no appreciation?
What if you gave more than you can afford?
What if you did all of your shopping at locally owned and operated stores instead of big boxes knowing that it would cost more? What if you considered that to be part of your giving campaign?
What if you donated brand new clothing to the kids in Haiti instead of used clothing?
What if you hugged that smelly person at church every Sunday?
What if the next time that homeless person on the street asked you for money you gave him a hug? And a $20 bill?
What if you got 20 $5 bills and committed to giving every one of them away this week?
What if you doubled your tips for the next month?
What would happen? I'm going to try some of these and I'll let you know how it goes. Let me know what happens if you try any of these and share some of your own "what ifs".
