“I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.”
— Maya Angelou, American poet

Today’s Excerpt:

Watch “I Like Being 98” (3-min video) to hear about 98-year-old Evelyn, who uses her limited means to give what she can. Evelyn says, “I’m on the earth, I’m here. If I’m here I should contribute. Shouldn’t we all?…I don’t have money to give, but I have myself, I have my time.”

Discuss:

  • What do you think of Evelyn?
  • Why does she give?
  • In this story, who benefited from the act of giving?
