Giving back enriches others at the same time it helps us. When we donate our time or money, our hearts and minds, we feel great and get a huge benefit.
I thought of a cool donation idea and want to share it.
Over on Management Craft, I wrote about Marcus Buckingham's new DVD series about using your strengths called Trombone Player Wanted. The $99 DVD series (you get 6 DVDs for the $99) is very inspiring and totally worth the money.
Why not get the DVD series and donate it to your favorite local organization? What a wonderful and provocative gift! Think Junior Achievement, Young Leadership Committee, your church youth group. I am giving a copy of the series to one of my favorite non-profits, the Seattle chapter of Dress for Success.
It's the gift that grows tentacles and seeps into so many lives! Take the time to watch it WITH your recipients and get inspired and pumped up along with them.
