We all have something we can give. While clothing, money and food are the most common donations, we can simply give a smile, a word of encouragement or a dedicated moment of undivided attention and appreciation.
As the Dalai Lama reminds us, “Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”
How might we practice
It’s good for our health.
