Great work coming up with a list of giving ideas! We’ll put these ideas to good use today by planning some ways to spend out of your Giving Envelope.
- Look back on your ideas from yesterday. For each one, reflect on why it’s meaningful to you. And for each one, how much would be a meaningful amount to give?
- Pick one of the ideas, and give to that cause. Remember to pick a cause that’s within your budget, and make sure to leave some money in your Giving Envelope so you’ll have space to give spontaneously later this week too.
- Tell us how you chose to give in the comments below!
Note for couples: If you find a cause that’s meaningful to both of you, combine forces. It can be super powerful both for the cause you’re supporting and for your relationship with each other. Extra Credit: Chi-Ming and Juliette were on the same page when they decided to give their savings away. Listen to their story.

I chose to make a donation to an organization that gives free public art performances because I value art being accessible to everyone!
I’m going to make a donation to an organization which helps amputees.

We gave the deposit to a man to get his prosthetic leg
I’m going to donate to Austin pets alive ten dollars a month as I’m also a foster
I made constant donations to the church I mostly visit and also keep some margin in my envelope for emergency events: such as Red Cross for Covid and war. And sometimes to a donation program which friends I know forward sicknesses help for their direct friends and relatives.
Tend to give where I have stronger sympathy and trust
I give to NPR, Save the Children, PBS and Second Harvest. I would like to increase what I give to each of those charities. I value them highly. The first I would like to increase would be PBS because I currently give the least to them.
