The 10% Rule
Re-Reading a favorite book of mine "Miracles at Work ; Building your Business from the Soul up." by: John Adams.
He states: "By contributing 10% of your Income to charity and 10% to savings, you will never want for anything. Try it for a year, even if you think you are living on the absolute minimum possible, find a way to dedicate 10% and you will experience
abundance." It DOES work.
He was right. GIVING is critical in our Lives.
We think we may not have enough to give, but it is unbelievable how a small amount can literally CHANGE LIVES.
Our Company has always given a little something each year.
A few years in a row, we donated to our Local Connecticut Children's Hospital-made us feel great.
We even offered our Team Members an option if they'd like to donate a percentage of their Paycheck at the end of the year to contribute an additional donation to the Hospital, and ALL of them did. (We LOVE our Team Members!!)
This year, we have decided to GIVE to a place where lives are literally changed by our donation..
That place is called: "Heifer International; Ending Hunger & Poverty"
We were told about this from my Aunt Tammie, who is a VERY generous woman and lives a smart life. Instead of purchasing unnecessary Christmas Gifts this past December of 2015, she purchased a Donation to Heifer International. Talk about Tis' the Season of Giving.
She was so smart and thoughtful to think of doing this.
It's like giving someone a Small Business.. It's teaching others that things are not just handed to them, instead it teaches them SELF RELIANCE. It's AMAZING.
We've decided what better place to donate than Heifer International?
Here is some information on them, check out this quick 2-minute Youtube Video to understand:
