Today is #GivingTuesday, a global day of generosity. What a great way to make a difference in the lives of others!
Donating money is great but there are other ways you can give to important causes, such as:
–Make care packages for those staying in a shelter.
–Read books to underprivileged children.
–Drive someone to the doctor or pick up their medicine.
–Become a big sister/big brother to at-risk youths.
–Visit the elderly at a nursing home.
–Donate your time and expertise to a local candidate’s political campaign.
I’m considering buying a set of picture books that are all centered around the central theme of giving to others. My thought is that I would read one book each week to children attending a local head start or elementary school, & then donating the books to their library. Seems like a great way to give of myself, hang out with kids, & encourage them to also become givers!
What are other ways you can think of to participate in #GivingTuesday? How are you going to make a difference in the lives of others today?
