Generosity means giving or sharing freely the things that you value—whether material possessions, money, time, or love—in a positive spirit.
A generous person gives without thought of reward and without strings attached—just for the joy of giving and making someone else feel good. Generosity is tied closely to empathy, since it involves thinking about what other people want or need - and your children showed lots of empathy last month.

Of course, the holidays and birthdays are times we associate most with giving, but generous acts at any time have a ripple effect, making the world a kinder, happier place.
