Rach’s 5 Reasons Why It’s Better to Give Than Receive

Happy #GivingTuesday! It’s the official start of The Giving Season (as Rach calls it), and there’s nothing better than making the swap from days of shopping to celebrating generosity.

On #GivingTuesday, your dollars certainly matter. But, your voice, time, and effort are just as valuable. To help celebrate the day, we’d love to recommend Rach’s non-profit, Yum-o!, which empowers kids and their families to develop healthy relationships with food and cooking. Check out all the ways to support Yum-o! and its partners today!

And if you need a few more reasons to give, Rach posted her tongue-in-cheek reasons why it’s better to give than receive via The List App, one of her new favorite social platforms. You can read her whole list on the app, but we brought some of the highlights to you!

Rach’s List on Why It’s Better to Give Than Receive

  1. What if karma exists? Make a deposit in the Good Karma bank!
  2. Giving feels good. 
  3. Giving makes you feel lighter. It’s like a diet for your soul.
  4. When you receive you have to take what you get. When you give, you are the boss! You can give your money, your time, or even your encouragement!
  5. Giving is as cool as we humans can get.

Don’t forget to share how you give using the official #GivingTuesday hashtag!
