The Universal Pain Reliever


Helping people give is critical now more than ever, but maybe for reasons that aren’t normally considered…

Dan Sullivan, a business coach and founder of The Strategic Coach, tells the story of a research project that led him to the feet of a wheel-chair bound woman. She wanted to manage her pain without having to rely on medication. She feared becoming addicted to strong painkillers.

The one thing other than medication that alleviated her pain?


The habit of giving reminds us of how much we have, and how much we’ve been given. Not just money: Heritage. Intelligence. Experience. Geography. Life. The list is long.

Giving fosters gratitude.

When you help people give, you help them be grateful.

Gratitude will not only alleviate the pains of life… it will change your view of your circumstances and your view of the future!

You… and your donors.



“How wonderful it is that nobody needs to wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”

– Anne Frank
