Looking for ways to give this year without breaking the already stretched holiday budget? Our ideas will let you give as much as you want without breaking the bank. Happy giving!
Give by paying it forward: The great thing about this small act of kindness is how much it can make someone’s day. Pay for someone’s coffee behind you. Leave a nice note. Let someone that looks to be in a hurry go first. These seemingly tiny acts will come together to not just brighten their day, but yours too.
Give with a click: Believe it or not, with a simple mouse tap you can feed the hungry, provide food for shelter animals, help hungry and homeless veterans, and fund research for various diseases. Each time you visit a Greater Good website (See all causes here) and click to give, all money generated from site advertisers goes to the cause of your choice. Another option is goodsearch.com, which allows you to select a favorite charity and donates to it each time you use the search engine.
Give your time: The best way to give while sticking to your budget this year is to donate your time. Whether it’s serving dinner at a soup kitchen, playing with homeless dogs and cats at your local shelter or even just checking on elderly neighbors, the gift of your time is invaluable to those receiving your help.
So what are you waiting for? Get up and give!
