Even in the most challenging of times there are people who go out of their way to help others. Without expecting anything in return, generous individuals make donations of money or time without any direct benefit to themselves. Some Good Samaritans offer food or medicine to those in need. Others share their time and skills to give certain communities a hand up or even open a new business through contributions to a crowdfunding campaign.

If you are a beneficiary of this kindness, it’s in your best interest to express gratitude to the supporters. Here are some beautiful thank-you messages you can send to individuals who donated to a worthy cause be that a non-profit organization or small business.
