Season of Giving

Last week, Mark Zuckerberg announced that he would give away 99% of his Facebook shares over the course of his lifetime to support causes focused on “personalized learning, curing disease, connecting people and building strong communities.” In this season of giving, we probably can’t top Zuckerberg’s promised gift, but we will no doubt have opportunities to try. Office gift exchanges, families, significant others … it’s the time of year when we express our love in gifts. Here’s a list of Pope Francis-approved gifts to share with young adults. Then discuss gift-giving traditions and suggestions for giving this year:

  • What are the gift-giving traditions in your family?
  • How do you feel about giving/receiving gifts as a young adult? What are the joys/challenges you experience?
  • What gift suggestions do you have that won’t break the bank? What is your go-to gift?
