Some Ideas for Giving Back: Volunteering and Good Charity Websites
Everyone wants to donate to charities. Is your heart bigger than your pocketbook? Even though we are currently in an economic crisis; we can still find simple and inexpensive ways to give back.
Go through your stuff and find things you either donÃÂÃÂt use or want anymore: like clothing that doesnÃÂÃÂt fit or you donÃÂÃÂt wear anymore or maybe an old sofa or chair or table you no longer use. Many common things people will always want or need are: clothing, childrenÃÂÃÂs toys, furniture, dishes, canned food and various other things. You can give clothing and just about anything to your local Goodwill, your local AMVETS, or any type of consignment shop or used clothing shop. Give food like canned goods and non-perishables to your local food bank or local soup kitchen. If you donÃÂÃÂt have any canned food to spare, try to watch for large sales on canned goods at your local grocery store and buy a bunch at cheaper prices then to give to a charity.
The Hunger Site ÃÂÃÂ www.thehungersite.com: I discovered this site a long time ago and ever since I try to remember to go to it everyday. At this website all you have to do to help give is click on a button, itÃÂÃÂs FREE and EASY! At first, the website was only for hunger, but now it includes breast cancer, child health, literacy, rain forest and animal rescue. Click on each tab to click on each button for each specific charity. This site also offers many other ways to give back for free and if you do buy anything from them most of the money is donated to the charity and you usually get a free gift for purchasing from them too! There is one catch; unfortunately you can only click once a day on each charity, after the first click they donÃÂÃÂt count it again coming from the same computer. You may ask how can I give something for free by just clicking on it. Well, the ads on the page and the sponsorships make it possible. For every click the sponsors pay a certain amount to each charity. So get clicking now! Sign up for their Remember to Click service and theyÃÂÃÂll e-mail you a reminder every day. YouÃÂÃÂll also get two free ÃÂÃÂCultivate PeaceÃÂÃÂ bracelets for signing up.
