These profound lyrics from a Christmas song sum it up:

Giving (Santa’s Theme) by Johnny Mathis (on Youtube 1.55-)

In this whole world that we live in,
There is one pure joy that ev’ryone can share:
The joy of giving
To the people for whom we care.
When you give love in small ways,
You’ll know it’s always there.
To be giving and forgiving
Is to understand the joy of living.
What’s so hard about giving?
It’s a perfectly simple art.
The trick is to give with love from the start
And to give with an open heart…
