Giving Makes You Beautiful

"Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love." --Lao Tzu

Giving is not only good for the receiver, it makes the giver that much more beautiful. Whether it be a compliment because you like someone's outfit, a friendly smile to the neighbor who looks like she's having a bad day, or giving to a good cause...those kind acts allow you to share good vibes with the community.

Everyday I make it a point to ask, "What can I do today to be of service to others?" I spend a great deal of time thinking of ways to give back and share my talents and gifts with those who may need it.

When you give to others, your body releases endorphins which make you feel good. You're smiling...you're happy...What could be more beautiful?

So what can you do to be of service to others? Well, this coming Monday, June 14th, it's your chance to give to a good cause. Nexcare Brand and America ’s Blood Centers have partnered for the second annual give program, a nationwide blood donation initiative kicking off on World Blood Donor Day. This campaign starts on Monday and runs through Sunday, June 20th. Find out more by visiting: http://www.nexcaregive.com/.

  1. Giving blood is a great way to literally save another person's life. Even if you don't have a rare blood type, the centers always need donors.

    For those of your readers who can't give blood, here's a great site where they can find local volunteer opportunities in a field that they have a passion for: http://www.charity-charities.org/volunteering/index.html
