Giving

happy and diverse volunteer group holding sign

I am a giver.  It is who I am and what I do.  I am a regular person with limited means but I can make a difference.  I do not always have the financial resources to give money but I usually manage to find some time to help others.  YOU can make a difference.  There are so many ways to give and so many ways that don’t require money or even a lot of time. The holidays are approaching fast and here in N.H. that means winter is almost upon us.  There are children, families, and animals that are homeless and in need of coats, food, shelter, and kindness.  If every person that has liked my Facebook page gives just $1, we would raise $1,023.00;enough to feed approximately 437 people a meal.  One meal won’t change their lives but it sure is a nice start.  $1 won’t change my life but my dollar combined with yours COULD change the life of someone else.  Our time, our blood, our empathy could save a life.  Have you considered a way that you could volunteer, donate, or help?

If you have a creative idea or way that you help others,  would you share it with us? I would love to hear ways that others are giving, volunteering and helping others.  I am not always the most creative thinker and really appreciate new ideas.

Here are some ways that I have thought of giving without directly donating money:

  • Give blood
  • Learn CPR/First Aid
  • Volunteer to walk dogs at your local animal shelter
  • Donate clothes, books, glasses, old cell phones, shoes, etc.
  • Volunteer at your local food bank
  • Donate food to the local food bank
  • Raise awareness on your Facebook page about a local cause
  • Give clothes to your local church clothing closet
  • Give food to your local church food pantry
  • Volunteer at a local soup kitchen
  • Volunteer to help your town with clean up day
  • Visit elderly in Nursing homes and assisted living facilities
  • Donate frequent flyer miles to a person or family that is fighting cancer
  • Adopt a pet from your local animal shelter
  • Supply transportation to a person or family in need

The possibilities are endless.  I can tell you from experience that you will get far more than you give.

Peace and blessings.
