I believe in tithing. I feel so blessed and fortunate to have the safe, comfortable and joyful lifestyle that I have, with the freedom to choose my path.
Most of the people on this planet are much less fortunate and, while I do not allow myself to be dragged down by the sorrow of that, I am delighted to be able to contribute to an amazing organisation helping put a smile on others’ faces. I hope you’ll feel delighted too.
Smile Train provides free cleft surgery and related treatment to hundreds of thousands of poor children in developing countries. This transforms each child’s life. I tithe to them from the top – in other words, 10% of my gross income from Break Through to Happiness goes directly to Smile Train (so that’s not 10% of profits, it is 10% of total income). This means that when you spend £6.50 with me to buy my book, Smile Train receives 65p from me. And when you spend £59 to sign up for my online course, Smile Train receives £5.90 from me. The same applies to my Happiness Mentoring – 10% from the top. So while we’re working to put a smile on your face, we’re also helping to put a smile on a child’s face – like this bright spark pictured here.
Cool, huh? 🙂
