Return to the roots,
"He whose heart is a calming force through the virtue of compassion,
In whom the gloom of ignorance is dispelled with the glow of wisdom,
The one who is a teacher in realms of gods and men,
I bow to the Buddha, who has nowhere else to journey"

Dāna is mainly translated as generosity, the activity of giving without expecting anything in return.
It includes not only material offerings, like the four requisites to Bhikkhu and Bhikkhunīs (Robes, Food, Medicine, Shelter), but dāna is also giving time to a person who is in need, donating blood to someone we don't personally know, giving compassionate understanding to those who are struggling, giving love to those who can't give it back to you, and much more.
