“That best portion of a good man’s life. His little nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love.”
William Wordsworth

Please Take One is the start of a global movement to encourage YOU to be more generous. It is a call to lead a more generous life, to maximise our life not our income.


We need to build a world of you and me, not you or me.

It is time to live more generously – to move on from the Age of I towards a new Age of Generosity where we decide that actually we can all tackle the challenges our society faces by living more generous proactive lives, and inspiring each other.

Don’t forget that being generous can and will have a positive affect on you as well.


Read the Please Take One Facebook wall. You can post a description, a photo or video of you as you carry out your generous act. This way you can inspire others to follow in your footsteps – it’s all about sharing ideas and taking one step together towards a more generous life.
