• Is this some kind of scheme where I have to give away my dollar to someone specific? No. You don't send your dollar to us or to anyone in particular. YOU decide where and how to give away your dollar. And YOU decide if you want to give it away anonymously or directly to someone.

  • Is this only about giving? No, there's more... Give Away A Dollar A Day is also about receiving. Because when you give away, and when you let go unconditionally, you are truly leaving a void.

  • Who is Todd Silva, besides being the founder of Give Away A Dollar A Day? Well first of all, he's not a guru or a healer, he's just an ordinary guy who happened to "wake up" after realizing that his life had become far too consumed with greed and with what he could "get" all of the time. He was a pretty good example of "What's in it for me". Today, Todd is a devoted husband and father, a successful businessman and degreed electrical engineer, and an accomplished musician and songwriter. He is committed to walking his talk, giving away a dollar every day, and dreams of a global community where we all truly care about one another, as demonstrated by unconditionally giving to each other every day.
  • So what really IS the greatest thing that we can give? Consider these two things - First, look deep inside and ask what it is that you want most in your life - not material things, because these are only temporary, but a quality of life - and then, go give that to others. For example, if you want more joy in your life, give joy. And if you want more love, then give love. If you want more peace, give peace... The second thing is to give from the very essence of who you are. What is your greatest gift that you already have, but may not have given to the world yet? What makes you come alive? What sets your soul on fire? Give from that place within you, because that is your passion, the very essence that is YOU!
