GIVING BACK QUOTATIONS
“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”

Sir Winston Churchill

“You are what you give; not what you are given.”

Sir David Tang

“Do something for those who have need of a man's help - Something for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it.”

Albert Schweitzer

“I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.”

Maya Angelou

“Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.”

H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

“Giving is not just about making a donation, it's about making a difference.”

Kathy Calvin

“The greatest good you can do for another is not just share your riches, but to reveal to them their own.”

Benjamin Disraeli

“For it is in giving that we receive.”

Saint Francis of Assisi

“Gracious acceptance is an art—an art which most never bother to cultivate. We think that we have to learn how to give, but we forget about accepting things, which can be much harder than giving... Accepting another person's gift is allowing him to express his feelings for you.”

Alexander McCall Smith

“Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.”

Tony Robbins

“At the end of the day, it's not about what you have or even what you've accomplished… It's about who you've lifted up, who you've made better. It's about what you've given back.”

Denzel Washington

“If you wait until you can do everything for everybody, instead of something for somebody, you'll end up not doing anything for anybody.”

Malcom Bane

If we can help because we have that from birth we are helped by our parents and do something for those who can not make that time builds humans.

Started a non for profit organization to aid youth with furthering their education. The alumni from Lake View High School are hosting their first benefit for the foundation and I am extremely excited! We are giving back to our youth one party at a time!

Giving back is investing the time and energy to meet a need.

Just wanted to stop by and tell you guys, you have the absolute coolest ads on TV. My 16 year old stops, whatever he's doing,to watch them. If you knew my 16 yr old, that's saying a lot. Keep up the great work and God Bless.
