How to Give
I have the courage to give, but where do I start?
Answer these questions:
- Will I enjoy giving to people my own age, people younger or people older than me?
- What do I love to do?
- Is there any specific issue that speaks to me? Health issue, violence, etc?
Think about this:
- Remember an experience that was life-changing - you could share it, using it to help others.
- Try a job you've always wanted to do. Look at what you're doing when you lose track of time.
- What do you love to do?
Once you determine the answers, try volunteermatch.org and servenet.org to let the net connect you with your perfect match. Type in your zipcode and discover all the people and places nearby waiting for your unique gift of giving.
Like most of you, I have been deeply saddened by the recent devastation caused by hurricanes and tornadoes. For kids and parents looking for ways to help other kids when disasters occur, please visit www.lemonstoaid.org. During these times, we especially feel compelled to open our hearts and give to others. For those of you looking to make donations, the American Red Cross's website is an excellent option.
