The weather is warmer, skies are brighter and you should be feeling good because its the summer time. Well-being affects every aspect of our lives so we should make an effort to participate in activities that will help to foster positive feel good vibes. Doing something to give back is always a good idea so here are three ways you can make a difference.
1. Organize a Party for Charity
What is summer without a good party? Throw a party or BBQ in honor of giving and spreading love for an organization of your choice. You could charge a small admission fee, host a raffle, a bake sale or even an auction to raise money all while having a good time with your friends and family. It’s a win-win!
While donating towards a charity is always a good thing it can feel even better to see the results of your efforts in person by giving of your time to volunteer. You will feel proud of yourself for doing something to help your community. Make sure that when volunteering that you’re putting your time towards something you are passionate about. It will help you to be more motivated and give you a greater sense of purpose from doing so.
3. Donate to Goodwill
Organizations like Goodwill need our donations to keep their efforts going strong. Your donation will help support programs and initiatives by Goodwill and keep unwanted items from piling up in landfills. It also feels really good to clean out and de-clutter your space plus your donations are tax deductible!
