You’ve probably heard about The Giving Pledge—Warren Buffett’s and Bill Gate’s project to encourage the world’s wealthiest individuals to pledge the majority of their wealth to charity. But the thing is, not everyone has to have billions to make a change. As Buffett told reporters, “We’re hoping that America, which is already the most generous society on Earth, becomes even more generous over time… More philanthropy and smarter philanthropy in the future is the goal.”
Giving Pledge, meet The Givr Pledge — where individuals from all walks of life and financial situations step up to take a pledge of their own. Change does not have to be complicated. It can be accomplished with one simple action: giving. No matter how big or small the gift, many people giving together can make extraordinary change.
The promise is simple. Givrs pledge to:
- Give more this year than I gave last year
- Find new ways to give and help others
- Encourage others to give through my actions and attitude
