Retirement Resources President and Investment Advisor, Dave Boike, talks about the overwhelming generosity of Americans who continue to outdo their giving to organizations here and around the world and provides tips to guide his readers who would like to participate in giving this season.
Auburn Hills, MI — December 11 2019— Dave Boike, President of Retirement Resources and co-author of The Ultimate Success Guide with Brian Tracy published a new article on the company website entitled, “How To Participate In The Most Generous Season.” Mr. Boike acknowledges those people who have made giving part of their financial plans.
Boike writes, “If you have made giving to charitable organizations part of your financial plan throughout your retirement, congratulations.” He adds, “You are not alone in your desire to help others.” Boike goes on the note that, “According to wallethub.com, “For the 38th time in the past 40 years, charitable giving increased year over year in 2018, according to Giving USA. Americans donated a total of $427.71 billion – nearly $292 billion of which came from individual donors. Forecasts call for a further increase in charitable giving in 2019, when the final figures are tallied, but much depends on how generous we feel this holiday season. ’Tis indeed the season for generosity, as a significant portion of all charitable donations are usually made in the month of December.”
“We’ve all heard that it’s better to give than to receive,” says Boike. He elaborates, “The reason for this is expressed in so many sayings including, “as we do unto others, we do unto ourselves,” and “what goes around comes around.” Of course, there are dozens of other quotes, but you get my point.” As Boike points out, “Charitable organizations serve our communities and our world with much needed services and aid. We cannot expect our governments to tend to every existing need and it is our responsibility to help our fellow human beings in the ways that we can.” Boike adds, “In case you are in the giving mood, I’m posting helpful tips from wallethub.com to help you discover some things to keep in mind when looking for ways to make sure your donations actually serve the cause you desire to help.”
