The Giving Tree


 All I have to give you
is all you’ll ever need
& all I ask of you
is give what you receive



The Giving Tree was a project designed to promote positivity with intention. Like most of my projects it is centered on optimism but the main focus for this was the intent behind it. I wasn’t standing there engaging in conversation and encouraging people to take or write an inspirational “leaf”. It is up to each individual to take hold of their life and choose to participate in something new, something that they are unsure of, but are going to take the chance to stop and look anyways. I’m a big believer that something as little as words on a paper can change a whole day because it’s the love behind it that really matters. Taking a piece of paper off a tree is one thing, but choosing to give that quote to someone who needs it, or writing your own for some stranger to take is not only creating your own happiness but sharing it.


The feedback so far has been great and I can’t wait to see how it continues to grow!

@katie__mac “Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Live & learn. Grow from your downfalls, keep on pushing. Your lowest point can be a blessing in disguise.” Everyone go get some inspiration today & leave some for someone else! #thegivingtree #thepassionproject
