Who comes to mind when you think of celebrity giving? U2′s Bono perhaps (one of the featured givers on celebrity giving site Looking To The Stars), maybe even people like Lady Gaga and Alicia Keys giving up Twitter for a good cause now and then. Don’t forget the golf tournaments and baby holding done by groups like Rascal Flatts.
Interesting title for what you are about to read… We are taught very basic skills from birth:
- Say please and thank you
- Mind your manners, be polite
- Always be on time
- Respect your elders
- Encourage your friends
These life skills and guiding principals, along with many others I am sure, are instilled in us as children. However somewhere between childhood and “know-it-all adulthood” people forget the simple graces of social interaction and begin to think that these rules don’t apply and that they can do it better.
