You Give, We Give! - Poem by Denis Martindale

Imagine if you would today,
Some good cause to support,
Before you give the same old way,
Just pause and give this thought...
Beyond such time your head was scratched,
To do the best you can,
Suppose donations could be matched?
Some 'You give, we give! ' plan...

That's what some enterprises do
And I was mighty glad,
When I became a partner, too,
Then gave some cash I had...
That way, it doubled, just like that!
It blossoms like a rose,
So on my back, I'll give a pat,
As my investment grows...

It ventured forth as good as gold,
To prosper here and there,
With its own stories to be told,
Because I chose to care...
God give you hope to help someone
The day you've understood...
'You give, we give! ' It's twice the fun!
God knows, that sure sounds good!

Here in the UK, the Ocado shopping company
matches our donations through their partnership
in their 'You Give, We Give! ' charity work...
We know of UK Government schemes like Gift Aid,
yet matching donations is even better.
