The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away"- Pablo Picasso
4 Ways Young Professionals Can Glow Up and Give.
1. Pick & Plan. Pick and plan out various charity events/icebreakers you'd like to attend for the year. I know of 4 for sure that I look forward to hitting every year. I'm already prepared to purchase tickets ranging anywhere from $50-$150. As a young professional, its important to make time to glow up and give. Give your hard earned dollars because they funnel into the programs and charities that make all the difference in our communities and our world. They're also some of the best parties with thee best food and you in your very best outfit. I live for a great party and a goodie bag. Create a Plan.
2. Challenge Others. Challenge others to give. Even if it's just $5 here or $10 there, lean on your friends to give and to support giving back. Create the culture amongst your group. I support everything and everybody and while asking others to give is my weakness, I've made a vow to myself to do better. All I can do is plant the seed.
3. Get creative. Get creative with giving. Introduce competitive challenges or fun activities to boost your own morale with glowing up and giving. Join crowdrising challenges or host your own fundraising events such as wine tastings to raise money to collectively give. Whatever you have to do, do it. It's fun to make this giving thing fun.
4.The best gift. The best gift is certainly your time. Take some time to volunteer or even spearhead a group activity to volunteer. It all just keeps you grounded and adds tremendous value to your life. Volunteer in your community or at a homeless shelter. If thats not your thing then collect goods to donated or read books to kids at the library. There are so many resources and organizations waiting on you to give. This is what makes the glow real. At least I know for me Giving Back has given me a highlight that no makeup product can match. It's the best gift.
Until next time,
