How Do You Find the Inspiration to Give?

[ 0 ] February 6, 2015 |

There are few things that make you feel better than giving back. But how does one find the inspiration to give back?

Connect 2 Good is a community development project being built by Austin volunteers for the community. The organization engages in community development by getting in-kind donations to the nonprofits and people who need them most. WATCH as Joshua Vaughan, Founder & CEO of Connect 2 Good, talks about finding the inspiration to give:

“We all can do something,” says Vaughn. “My objective was to inspire people to move and be active, to want to give back, to do more.” There is so much that people can do to make the world a better place. Giving even a little bit can go a long way. People all over the world are dealing with famine, disease, living in a war zone, among other situations that make their life challenging, to say the least.

Vaughan wants to remind those who are fortunate that there are others who are far removed from that state, and inspire those with means to make a difference. “There’s a lot of inspiration out there,” he said. “You can be a part of the solution. Even the smallest gesture, it does matter!”connect2goodlogo

“Consider looking through your closet or your garage; is there something you haven’t used in 6 months?” he asks. “No matter how small it is, consider putting it through a donation… What ends up happening is you’re just adding that value to that organization. That means that that non-profit no longer has to take their operation costs and put it towards supplies, their limited budget can now go towards program costs and having more effective community initiatives.”

If everyone just gave a little, a lot of good could be done. How do you find your inspiration to give?
