If you are thinking of donating more than your time this year, why not research charities local to you that may fly under the radar when it comes to giving. All charitable causes are worthy but perhaps there are homeless shelters, women’s refuges, children’s charities and animal rescues that rely on local people to carry on the great work they do. Perhaps in 2020 you could forgo one branded coffee a week to make a monthly donation to a cause of your choice or perhaps you could gift your friends and families wishes and donate what you would spend on their gifts, to charities close to their own hearts. There’s so many people and organisations doing great things right now, that I’m sure you’re bound to find somewhere that needs a little gift in the coming months.
And if you don’t have any time free right now or aren’t in a position financially to donate, then maybe there are other ways you can spread a little joy through the next year. Clearing out barely worn clothing and lightly used cosmetics to donate, taking part in a sponsored event to raise money for others, organising a charity bake sale at work or school, even sharing worthwhile causes online to boost their followings. There are just so many ways to give back and I for one will be donating my time and money this next year to a handful of amazing causes.
I’d love to know how you might be paying it forward this year and if you have any charities you’d like to share with everyone below please do!
Happy Holidays guys x
