You can literally give a gift from the heart today by donating blood. Blood donations are always needed and there is never enough so every bit counts.

From premature babies to accident victims to cancer patients all need blood donations so your blood will be going to a great cause and remember that when you donate blood you are saving lives.
Dinner for the homeless
Candle light romantic dinners will be the order for this evening but there a millions of homeless people who are not sure about their next meal. When taking your significant other out for dinner tonight stop by a homeless shelter or find a homeless person and purchase a meal for them. It will make their night because it would be a random act of kindness. Feed the homeless
Donate to a cause
Making a donation to an organization or a charity on behalf of someone is another great way to give from the heart. The Heart and Stroke Association has chosen February as national health month and millions of people suffer from heart conditions every day. Making a financial donation to a cause such as this will give a gift that will help others near and far, it will ensure that people are informed about heart disease but also that they are able to get the help needed.
We living in a world filled with consumerism and so by giving back even a little can go a long way. As you celebrate this day of love remember that it is better to give than to receive.
