Want to make a difference this holiday season? Give back using these ideas.
The holidays are a wonderful time of year. Some might even say they’re the most wonderful time of the year. Why is that?
Certainly, the presents and sweets don’t hurt, but I think the real reason we all get into the holiday spirit is because it’s a time of year that centers on being with the people you love and sharing in a spirit of giving. If you’re looking for ways to give back during the holiday season, I’d like to offer these three things you can give.
- Time. You’ll never know how much impact even an hour of your time can have until you give it. Spending time volunteering at a local senior center, animal shelter, or soup kitchen will not only give you the chance to serve your community, it also all but guarantees you’ll leave with a smile on your face! As they say, ‘tis better to give than receive.
- Belongings. You’re going to need to make room for holiday gifts, so clean out your home now. Donate old coats, blankets, and shoes to keep your community warm. Give away nonperishable food you don’t really need to your local food bank. You’ll be surprised how much the stuff that’s just lying around your home could mean to someone in need!
- Money. Donating to a worthy cause is a great way to make sure the money you worked hard to earn works hard for the causes about which you care.
