“Willing to give and share, unselfish”
Thoughts to Ponder:
“A sure way for one to lift himself up is by helping to lift someone else.”
    Booker T. Washington
“Not what we give, but what we share-for the gift without the giver is bare.”
    James Russell Lowell
“A man was once passing through a field where he saw a very old man planting an oak    tree. ‘Why are you planting that tree?’ said he, ‘You surely don’t expect to live long enough to see the acorn growing up into an oak tree.’ ‘Ah,’ replied the old man.   ‘My ancestors planted trees not for themselves, but for us, in order that we might enjoy their shade and their fruit. I am doing likewise for those who will come after me.’”
    The Talmud
Generosity in our home, school and community means:
  • Helping one another in doing difficult tasks
  • Giving of ourselves unselfishly to help others
  • Sharing our time with friends and family who are in need
  • Appreciating the good things we see in others instead of being envious
  • Sharing whatever we have with our family, peers and others
