Charity is never an effort, it is never a burden, it is a quintessential joy. You share because it is joyous whether it is saying to a friend ‘look at that bird, look at the cardinal, look at the hummingbird, the hawk, the eagle, the bumblebee’ and you both gaze and smile and you have shared this unique moment that will never occur again. It is when you reach out and you connect, that is the core of Charity, it is not impersonal, it is very personal; it does not matter whether you are giving a billion dollars to an organization, it is personal. It is not about not caring, it is about caring passionately.
