Journey Beyond Self
It is our objective that this website and, indeed, the overall mission of “Journey Beyond Self’ will accomplish three goals: first, that it will be the primary source of information regarding virtually all aspects of giving; second, that it might inspire you to incorporate giving and gifting as an important mission in your life; and finally, that you and those dear to you, experience the profound joy and satisfaction that giving can invoke.
In addition to the whys and hows of giving we will highlight inspirational stories and the many benefits to both the recipients and the givers. Hopefully, you will share with us stories and examples of giving that you’ve experienced or witnessed. With your permission we would like to include some of these on our website or blog
