In my family, philanthropy is not just something you do, it’s a part of you. I was raised understanding the importance of giving to others. This is something I work every day to instill in my girls. From an early age, I want them to understand philanthropy is really an extension of gratitude. Giving back is a way of showing that you appreciate what you have, and are willing to share and help others.
Ann Frank once wrote “Nobody has ever become poor from giving.” To me, what this speaks to in many ways is the law of attraction, Karma, whatever it is that you believe in. Everything in life comes full circle and by helping others, you also help yourself; What you put out there comes back to you. So why not put something positive out there?
