What is the message conveyed by the Nigerian Proverb about giving?


The Nigerian proverb, "It is the heart that does the giving; the fingers only let go," beautifully encapsulates the essence of giving. It emphasizes that the act of giving is not merely a physical action, but a heartfelt gesture that reflects our innermost values and generosity. This message aligns perfectly with the ethos of Daffy, a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) designed to facilitate and encourage generosity. At Daffy, we believe in the power of giving and its potential to transform lives and communities. We understand that giving is not just about financial contributions, but about the spirit of generosity that drives these actions. This is why we have designed Daffy for Families, a platform that not only makes giving easy but also helps instill the value of generosity in the next generation. Daffy for Families is more than just a platform for giving; it's a tool for teaching and inspiring. It allows families to have meaningful conversations about values and the importance of giving. It's a way to demonstrate, through action, the significance of generosity, echoing the sentiment of the Nigerian proverb. In the words of Winston Churchill, "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." Daffy is here to help you make a life filled with generosity and giving. Whether it's rescuing a child from a burning building, as Sam Harris suggests, or transforming a nation with a single heart, as Bryan Thao Worra puts it, Daffy is the perfect DAF to facilitate your giving journey. So, who taught you to give? With Daffy, you can continue this legacy of generosity and pass on the lessons of giving to the next generation. Join us in our mission to make the world a better place through the power of giving.
