About Mindful Giving

This blog is dedicated to being mindful about our acts of philanthropy and giving and experiencing the results. I’ll look at myself, others — and to you if you comment on this blog from time to time. I’ve divided  giving into 7 categories (as proposed by Maimonides, but without ranking them) and will explore when, why, and how we do them:

Helping a person find employment or establish themselves in business so as to make it  unnecessary for them to become dependent on others.

When the donor and recipient are unknown to each other.

When the donor is aware of the recipient’s identity, but the recipient is unaware of the source.

When the recipient is aware of the donor’s identity, but the donor does not know the identity of the recipient.

When one gives directly without being asked.

When one gives directly upon being asked

When one gives less than s/he should, but does so cheerfully.
