Whole-hearted help

'never reach out your hand unless you're willing to extend an arm'

Token helpfulness isn't often appreciated. We see the problem, we want to help but we don't really want to commit too much to it - and then we stop short of actually doing anything.

Those involved wonder why we even bothered. Did we really care???

If we wish to help, we must give it some thought and decide on a specific way we can make a difference.

Time is short and finances may be limited, but if we want to get involved...
it is best if we have a clear intention.

So if you want to help someone, make sure you'll do it wholeheartedly.
Whether to give your time, a donation or provide a listening ear, be completely present and expect that you may need to follow up afterwards too.
