8 Reason for Giving
A day in the life of a full-time mother consists of running errands non-stop, always putting our children before ourselves. Daily duties consist of dropping kids off at school, running to the grocery store, swinging by the drug store, or even dropping a child off at practice, and more–we ALWAYS find ourselves bumping into other people we know while we are out running errands. Whether it is acquaintances, family, friends, church members, etc. You mention that you’re participating in March for Babies this year and maybe I want to help out? Let’s assume I want to, I can, and I will. Obviously I’m a nice person, but I just may have a couple of other reasons to give you a donation.
1.] I can use the tax deduction; either that or I want to burn the calories any way I can
2.] I know you, I like you and I want to help in anyway that I can
3.] I am heartened by your story and want to dedicate my time
4.] I want to feel good about myself and you’ve just given me the opportunity
5.] I feel I have a lot to be grateful and thankful for and want to give back
6.] I like doing something that could make a difference in a baby’s life
7.] I have always given to the March of Dimes so this is a no brainer
8.] I feel connected and want to be a part of this community
