In my book, giving used to mean some sort of financial contribution. What I’ve come to know is that for many people it’s not so much about the money; it’s about a sense of connection.

And actually, sometimes it might be time, attention, and energy that are short, rather than money.

Giving differently might be taking the time to call a loved one.

Or investing time for an almond-milk-matcha latte-catch up with a friend we haven’t seen in a while.

Perhaps it’s as simple as sending a study-buddy a message.

Whatever it is, giving differently requires intention. 1

I’d love to learn what a different kind of giving means for you?

Be fab to see you on this week’s #AliveWithFi keep sharing your sunshine ?

1 While not everyone can give financially, “ fortunately, there are plenty of opportunities to give value in other ways.” For example, we can give just by sitting with and giving time to a friend who’s lonely or needs support. And if we’re wanting to make a difference, check out these non-monetary ways to give generously. “How Generous People Give More Than Money” K. Daum (2014)
