The LifeShine Generosity Project Mission
To encourage, inspire and motivate all individuals to increased acts of a generous nature. We do this by sharing stories of generosity both from the giver and the receiver perspectives. Our aim is to clearly share the value of generosity and how it can be engaged with Time, Talent and Treasure. We strive to make it abundantly clear as to why it is more rewarding to give than to receive and why generosity in all it’s innumerable forms is the secret sauce for success.
Wherever you are and whatever you’re doing, give generosity a nudge.
