Even the tiniest of acts can have a big effect; we all know that. Turn any action in a way to help and support. Shopping or traveling, may seem a selfless act, but you can turn it in a way to help others. Shop in a local supermarket owned by a family instead of a franchising, travel to less known cities, stay in rental apartments instead of a luxury hotel.
GIVING TO CHARITY
Contributing to charity is the easier way to support a good cause. Doing it with children teaches them that they can change the world even at an early age. You have to lead with the example. Children instinctively want to benefit from others, so encouraging their kindness will help them to growt with greater appreciation for what they have and continue to support charity in the future.
Starting a partnership with the NBCF of donating to charity with your children is simple – Create a family donation box to which everyone can contribute and designate it to a charity every year.
Take action and sign a petition.
The days of petitioning signatures knocking on people’s doors are long gone. Online petitions are a quick and easy way to get involved and show your support for the cause. And it only takes you a few seconds. Start one of your own petition for a cause you care for or sign one in support of a case that matters to you.
Go on a Volunteer Vacation
This kind of is not exactly “effortless” but taking voluntary holiday benefits you and the group of people you are visiting. You will save money and literally have an incredible experience while helping and supporting a good cause, contrary to popular belief.
Organize a drive and get others involved.
Charitable group drives will make a huge difference, no matter how big or small they are. Organize toy, clothing, and food collection to bring people together for a good cause. The smile on people’s faces will change your mood in the right way
Donate unwanted items to a charity in need.
Clothing, furniture, books, toys, appliances and very other items are accepted by several charities, you do not need to go directly to the people in need. Instead of throwing used goods or items that are definitely are no longer useful to you, consider donating them. It is a way to declutter your house and do good at the same time.
This practice is good for the environment as well, recycling helps the planet and guarantees a better future.
Ask for donations as gifts.
Do you have an upcoming birthday, wedding, or other special occasion? Instead of giving you presents, ask your friends and family to make a donation to your favorite charity.
Donations will help make a big difference for people in need.
Donate your skills and volunteer your time.
Many charities are totally dependent on volunteers who generously give their time. Remember that sometimes time is better than money.
By donating your time and talents, you will make a direct gift to your favorite charitable endeavors. Volunteering also gives you a natural sense of accomplishment and makes you feel like you have had a positive impact! It’s not a kind gesture for the others, but for you too!
