Charity: The Gifts of Giving is a non-fiction religion/philosophy book written by Garret Biss. In it, the author explores the concept of charity and the effects that giving can have on your personal well-being and happiness. Charity, he explains, takes many forms. It can be a kind word to a friend or colleague, or a thoughtful gift. Tithing to one's church is also a form of charity. In each chapter, Biss describes an aspect of charity and offers suggestions for the reader to implement this exercise of giving in his Actions assignments. No donation is too small in the author's view; he advises that the reader give what he can and shows how designating a portion of one's income for charity can make the act of giving easier. He also gives information on how to set up charities and fund raise for them.
Garret Biss' non-fiction motivational book, Charity: The Gifts of Giving, is filled with ideas that are easily put into practice, and you don't need to have a lot of money to get started. I liked how the author demonstrated through his personal experiences every aspect covered in this book. As I was reading it, I started brain-storming on what I could do and how I could use my personal skills to help others. Biss' attitude on charity and giving is quite contagious. His ideas on charitable donations and the links he provides for finding charities that resonate with the giver are very helpful. In addition, his ideas on fundraising are first-rate, especially those which utilize social media to give your charitable efforts the widest distribution. This inspiring book may seem small at first, but it's really very big on ideas to make acts of charity a part of your everyday life. Charity: The Gifts of Giving is most highly recommended.
