The family that perseveres in good works will surely have an abundance of blessings. - Chinese Proverb
What exactly is philanthropy?
According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, the definition of philanthropy is:
1) goodwill to fellow members of the human race; especially : active effort to promote human welfare
2) an act or gift done or made for humanitarian purposes;
an organization distributing or supported by funds set aside for humanitarian purposes.
We tell our kids that philanthropy is giving. We think it is best explained by living it out. There are lots of ways to give but we like to wrap it up with fitness and family togetherness.
Giving is something anyone can do. You don't have to have a lot of money or any other material possessions. Philanthropy begins with a belief that we should all share, we should all give. We know individuals that have very little to give, so they give of their time.
