Brad Formsma- I Like Giving: The Transforming Power of a Generous Life
This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Brad Formsma. The original live interview was 12/11/15.
I Like Giving is about experiencing the joy of giving. We all have something to give. Giving goes way beyond money or things. It can be a listening ear, a touch, or simply the gift of time. Giving is living.
Brad’s story began at a young age, inspired by his grandfather to open his eyes and see the needs of the people around him. Fast-forward a few years, and Brad has committed his life to making the world a better place, one giving story at a time.
When you choose to live a generous life, you start to change and so does the world around you. Something incredible happens when giving becomes your own idea, not something you do out of duty or obligation. When you move from awareness to action, miracles happen. As you make giving a lifestyle, you’ll realize you’re not only loving life more, you’re also creating a more generous world— a better world for all of us.
The website ilikegiving.com is a platform for storytelling and idea sharing. As a result of countless stories of generosity, in 2014 the book “I Like Giving: The Transforming Power of a Generous Life” was born. It has been named one of the top inspirational christian books of 2015.
I Like Giving is a movement which inspires people to live generously through short stories and films. Brad is an expert in generosity and has dedicated the last decade of his career to this work. I Like Giving films have been viewed over 26 million times in more than 170 countries. Beyond the films, Brad and the I Like Giving team works with organizations, churches and individuals to change lives by teaching the art and science of generosity.
Brad and his wife, Laura, have three children and live in Southern California.
