St Laurence’s’ Children’s home.
WHAT IS CHARITY? Charity is to give to others that which belongs to you.
When you give to charity, you experience happiness. Do you know why? Because when you let go of something that you love, you give happiness to others. For most people that one thing is money. Even if you have the slightest thought of taking away something from others, you yourself create various obstructions and difficulties in your life.
Every year the teachers and staff do a “Secret Santa” at their Christmas function. This year we decided to give back a little too. We decided along with our Secret Santa gift we would each buy a needy child a gift for Christmas.
Thank you to all the teachers and staff who donated a gift! You brought great joy to a child this festive season.
The one who donates willingly and happily reaps more benefits than the one who donates under pressure or with the expectation of return. Your intention should be to lessen the other person’s misery, not to gain fame or fortune.
