How did this concept work?

Gifting has been around for CENTURIES!. Giving private gifts to one another is an expression of kindness, which has been going on for centuries. Very much like the traditional “Barn Raising” where an entire town would come together to help a family in need. The combined charity and synergy of people helping each other can create miracles! Governments have allowed its practice for individuals to share their wealth with families, friends and others. It has been a means of helping and blessing others on special occasions or when the need arises.

Many cultures gift as a matter of course. Asian, Jewish and South American communities gift individuals within their culture on a regular basis so that they may start a business or buy a home. They in turn gift someone else to help enhance their lives. Habitat for Humanity is a great example of private gifting. Everyone participates with their time, their talents and materials to build a home for someone else. Some participate with a hammer, some with nails, some with food and others with the monetary gifts to purchase the supplies, but all create a team that works together to bless someone's life. Ever see “Extreme Makeover?”
