This week's vlog has been sitting on my heart and so I had to share my thoughts. There has been a lot of talk about the dangers of Giving Back ever since a woman was killed recently while handing money to a woman on the street.
The consensus has been to let this horrible act shift the good that we want to do. I think that that will only dim the beautiful lights on the planet who want to do good. Instead, I am providing tools to make you feel more comfortable about giving after moments like this that may give you pause. I understand the hesitancy. I simply want to give you the tools to help you continue to Give Back.
I hope that this blog has inspired you to look at the situation a little differently. If it did, I’d love to hear all about it. Let's continue to change the world together.
