Significance of National Give Something Away Day
Giving away is the simplest act of kindness that can make others cheerful and happy. Giving things away works both ways. Not only the person that receives the things gets happy but the one who gives away gets a feeling of content and gratification. Giving things to those in need who cannot afford them can bring a person the kind of satisfaction and happiness that no material object can bring. Giving things away also provides a way to get rid of things that you do not require anymore but are taking up space because you cannot bring yourself to throw them away. Thus by giving things away that are just lying around in your house, you can unclutter some space in addition to bringing happiness to others.
Giving away is not about offering precious things to others. It is not the price of the object that you give away matters but the value that it holds. The main objective of National Give Something Away Day is to be grateful for the blessings one has in life and also feel a sense of responsibility for those who are less fortunate than us. With this goal, National Give Something Away Day is observed every year on July 15.
