The Joy of Giving: A Lesson from Three of Our Youngest Supporters
Recently, a moment of pure generosity deeply inspired us: twin six-year-old girls and their five-year-old brother entrusted us with their entire savings — a sum of $36.73, earned from tooth fairy visits and tips from selling water at a car show — to help kids in Haiti to have a better home.
One of the girls said to me with the unreserved joy of a child, “I gave all my monies.”
It was a statement of such simple, profound sincerity, it reminded us that the essence of giving is not in the amount, but in the spirit of the gesture. Their donation, small yet immense in its meaning, encapsulates the very essence of selfless giving.
We invite you to honor their generous spirit and match their $36.73 gift. Together let’s all affirm and amplify their message of abundant hope and generosity.

Share this on your social media, via email, or in conversations with colleagues, family and friends. Each new contribution compounds the good we can do and spreads the joy of giving further and wider.
