Could you live a life of giving without anyone ever knowing about your giving?
There have been people who have done just this. Even after their death, they have provided for loved ones, including strangers, in their will and that's when people found out they were supporting and providing care.
Yes , as many millions already do , by donating their time and resourses in quiet ways, giving time , food, money or of themselves every day. I know a man in his seventies who does everything in the Lions Clubfrom playing Santa claus to delivering food baskets , rides to veterans hospitals , Hes been doing this for at least forty years that I know of.. These men and women are the truest heros of life.
I would like to think so. People that give but want everyone to know about it aren't really giving at all.
Easily,and to be honest iit's sometimes best to keep it anonymous.
It's often that other charities solicit from large contributors and small contributors alike.Mailing list of Board Directors,Presidents,VP's and shareholder list are very accessible to charities.
So as to avoid unwanted solicitations anonymity maybe be best.
I think this is a great question. Honestly, I don't think so. There are some things I give and do for others anonymously, and there's a deep joy to be found in that, but I know that sometimes I really do want others to know that I am giving to them so that they will know how much I value and care about them.
i do already. i don't advertise what i do to help others though i do try to get others to do simple things to help people everyday. my life is private in the way i give to others but the results can be seen by many.
I feel I do that already, which is ok by me. I know and God knows and he is the only one that matters.
I would. Definitely. If you give for the sake of getting something in return, the entire act is void of meaning and is in deed selfish. I would give for the sake of giving for a better tomorrow.
Yes, that IS the point.......that we not call attention to our gifts, lest, they become scores.
Yes I do all the time. I have many ways that I help people, some people know (when they ask for my assistance or training, I help everyone that has questions for me.) I have helped my blog readers and many others start online careers.
But I also do a lot that people do not know about. I donate a lot of different ways and as long as I know I do it, I am quite content with that. I am just a helping person by nature.
Yes why not. If you can contribute a bit to the society, its not wrong. Most of us run in the rat race of our white and blue collar jobs. We owe something to the society at large too. Moreover, when you do something for others out of your own will then there is absolutely no necessity of a propagandizing about your deeds. Just do your part without being noticed.

Here is an idea I've been pondering lately--it may be a symptom of growing older, now that I'm only about a year and a half from turning 70, and therefore knowing that my life is at least half or more over, given the...
