My friend Yanina should be featured in the dictionary for Generous.
John and Tim, Paterson NJ

It is good to be generous because no one know what tomorrow will bring.
FUNMI, LAGOS

Generosity is being happy to give.
Bruce Willingham, Warner Robins, Ga

Forgiveness is also a thing such as generous. Although this is not a materialistic thing.
Cassie Chang, Malaysia,Batu Pahat

We all can be generous in some way or another by sharing our time, talent or treasure. Don't let your lack of money keep you from helping others.
Sandy, Colorado

My work is that of a mystery shopper. I am paid for visiting certain businesses and conducting a shopping experience at each store. Then I file the report online and receive a payment for having done so. Many of my shops are for Sonic Drive-Ins. Since I am not able to eat all the of the food I am obligated to purchase, I choose to give much of it away. All of my Sonic purchases are given to military recruitment offices in my area. If not those, I choose fire departments, but most of the food goes to the recruiters. God Bless America!
Rick Schwab, Fort Worth

The true value of a generous gift or act of kindness lies in direct proportion to the degree of sacrifice required.
