I loveeeee gifts. I love the thoughtfulness and the appreciation associated with giving gifts, but this is better! This will help so much more people in need and I appreciate your help in a cause I truly believe in!
When I turned 18 years old, I told myself I had 10 years to be selfish. I had 10 years to focus on myself, so that by 28 years old I could be in a position to help others. I knew this would not be possible without an education and a sustaining career that could help me earn enough money for myself, my family and others. I always worry about the possibility of never earning enough money to help others. I genuinely want to give back to the world, but not at the expense of not being able to help myself and my family first. If I could not at a minimum do that, I knew I would not have the financial security and foundation to help others because I would be struggling financially myself.
Fast forward to today, days away from being 28 years old, and I am nowhere near financially stable. BUT... that’s okay. That does not mean I cannot give up my birthdays going forward (as a start).
So, please donate what money you would have wanted to spend buying me a birthday gift.... here.
