A Case Study of Anonymous Giving

But thou, doing kindness, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doth. — Matthew 6:3

~~~~ Good News of the Day: “Giver Girl” and her husband “Giver Boy” came up with a simple yet powerful idea: donating $52 to a different charity every week for a year. After each experience, they post their moving reflections, invite others to join in, and maintain total anonymity. The brilliance of their project is captured in a week when they spontaneously decide to make that week’s gift a $52 tip to a waitress serving them. After leaving the tip, they decided to ‘run away without watching (their) waitress’s expression.’ “That’s it right there. That’s generosity. Giving in a sacrificial way with the intent of blessing others while seeking nothing in return — not even recognition, gratitude, or praise. And this lesson is the biggest gift that Giver Boy and Giver Girl have sent out.” Rev. Charles Howard, University Chaplain at UPenn, shares an inspiring case study of anonymous giving.
