How Can We Give ?

How can we give,
Let us count the ways.....
Numerous are the ways by which we can express our solidarity for the Joy of Giving Week. The most important of these is to participate. Most of us will have our own ideas of the ways in which we would like to participate, but to get us started and probably make it easier, we have listed a few of those.
