In 2018, with an Arengo application presented by the Polo of Healthcare and Social-Health Voluntary Associations of the Republic of San Marino, was established there Gift Day.
“A date not chosen at random, that of October 4th, preferred to others precisely because it is full of meaning and values - declares Maria in a note Katia Savoretti, coordinator of the Polo of Health and Social-Health Associations of the Republic of San Marino, regarding the Gift Day –. In fact, St. Francis represents more than any other the man who made the gift a life choice and his life a donation to the other “.
“The Republic of San Marino has always responded with great sensitivity to requests for solidarity which come from many parts thanks to the rich network of volunteers present in the area which today constitutes a civil, human and cultural heritage of inestimable value for our entire community – underlines Savoretti -. Daily basis the voluntary associations of San Marino and numerous San Marino citizens silently donate without prejudice to political affiliation, without religious or gender barriers“.
The gift “it’s a gesture with a deep and mystical meaning, because giving goes beyond the simple gesture of generosity, it becomes something else: commitment, hope, trust, the beginning of a human relationship, a bond that often becomes friendship and at times, very often loneliness“.
A day dedicated to the gift, therefore, allows “reflection on the deeper meaning of the word ‘gift’, on its most intrinsic value and on the most varied aspects that it can acquire and that each of us can give it: whether it is money, time or organs, blood or marrow, the gift is an act of generosity that goes beyond the gesture and the object, but it sets in motion relational dynamics of hope and beauty “.
“The culture and education of the gift must be extended, supported, because a country, capable of reacting to difficulties by putting the beauty of the gift at the center, in all its aspects, capable of bringing good donation and solidarity, will always be a country with a great value, both from a human point of view. how social “, says Savoretti finally.
