If you have seen my other posts or the abundant amount of research available on the topic, you know that it is not only in the best interest of the receiver but the real benefits of giving and being charitable, are delivered in greater proportions to the giver. I think that a lot of the hesitation when it comes to giving are related to the fact that people think that they can give too little and that it will not make an impact. But much to the contrary every small amount really does help and if we all just put a little bit of effort the world really would be a better place.
With all this in mind, I have decided to prove it to you. I have developed a contribution tracker tool for you to use to track your generosity. Using this tracker you will be able to see how giving a little bit really does add up over time and how your contribution and your life does matter to leaving a lasting legacy.
Just to give you an example, when I looked back to see what I could add into my own personal tracker I found that I have provided 277 meals since 2017 to women and children that needed it. Whenever I thought of it, or when I was feeling down, I would donate via the Share The Meal app and the result is over 250 meals to people who needed it, just from me alone. Through my monthly contributions to Charity Water I have personally been able to ensure that 13 people received clean water in the world that needed it. I have literally changed the lives of 13 people! I am not saying any of this to boast, I was also surprised at these results, its only to point out that with very little I was able to make an impact and so can you. It made me feel good to know that I have been able to make a real change for another human being on this earth. This is another reason why the tracker will be such a good tool, yes, it will show you your impact, but it will also serve as a reminder of the good you are doing and how much you matter which will be a real boost to your happiness levels and make giving feel just that much better!
So get your own contribution tracker HERE. And every once and a while when you have a couple of moments update it. Then over time see the results that tiny efforts can make in the world and how much your own contribution matters. Then, just think, if each person each just did something small every now and then what these compounded efforts could create in the world.
I would love to hear what you think of the tracker in the comments below. I would also love to hear what are small things that you do to be generous. If you need some ideas for inspiration check out my previous post ~ 10 Positive Benefits of Being Charitable + 10 Ways That you can Giveback ~ HERE.
