There are many ways to practice generosity. We need not to be super rich. We need not to be the boss of a high-profile company. All it takes is a desire to help people lead happy and meaningful lives. It may not drastically change the world, but for sure, it can better our situation.
“Goodness is about character—integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people.” — Dennis Prager
