A New Perspective In Giving This Coming Xmas

Posted by Dorothy under Community Interests, Natural Highsno responses

Xmas is coming up and a lot of you will be cracking your head as to what presents to buy for your family and friends. All the shopping centers in town will be gearing up their xmas enticing programmes as festive seasons are the perfect time to rake in sky high profits. Your weekends leading up to Christmas is going to be spent in busy shopping malls, walking and spending in hope of finding the gifts which you think will make your receiver happy.

If you are in need of a change and new ideas in the way you present your xmas gifts, please consider the noble option of giving to a charity organization which your receiver is supportive off, and in their name. For example, donate to THE BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION and get a receipt in the name of your loved one. In that way, you will be doing a selfless act which makes you, your receiver and the organization happy.

This idea of mine may not appeal to everyone but I hope that I have created some awareness to some and a gift inspiration to others.

For my fellow Malaysians who support my gift idea, please log on to www.hati.org.my where you can find a long list of charity organizations in Malaysia ( for my non Malaysian readers, ‘hati’ means heart )

na tyajyam karyam eva tat

yajno danam tapas caiva

pavanani manisinam

( Bhagavad Gita Chapter 18 Verse 5 )

Translation:

Acts of sacrifice, charity and penance are not to be given up; they must be performed. Indeed, sacrifice, charity and penance purify even the great souls.
