6 ways you can help others this Holiday Season
With the holidays coming up, people are in a more festive mood. People are excited to be a part of the giving spirit, and with how connected everyone has become, it has never been easier to give back. This holiday season, consider some of the following opportunities you can take to pay it forward for others.
- Donate Toys
One of the best things you can do is bring some holiday cheer to a child without a toy. There are numerous organizations that take new, unopened toys. If you are having trouble finding one, you can simply take the toys to local shelters or hospitals. Some local options are the Angel Tree through The Salvation Army, Toys for Tots, and Christmas Charities Year Round.
- Donate Food
There are many people who do not have access to food this holiday season. When you help a family by providing them with a hearty meal, you can provide them with certain happiness, especially when you work with a dedicated food bank. Some local options are the Food Bank of North Alabama, Manna House, The Rock Ministry Worship Center, Mercy Ministries, and Rose of Sharon Soup Kitchen.
- Pay It Forward
At your favorite quick food stop, you can pay the next person’s drink or food order forward. Simply pay for your own meal and then ask if you could pay someone else’s forward. It can be enough to make someone’s day.
- Donate Your Time
Volunteering or helping out at a dedicated area can be enough for you to make a massive difference. Find out if there are any local soup kitchens that you would like to visit and see what you can do there to help out.
- Enjoy Giving Tuesday
Like paying it forward yourself, Giving Tuesday is a special occasion where you encourage your friends and family to pay it forward as well. Whether sharing simple acts of kindness or making future donations, this is one of the best ways to brighten somebody’s day.
- Make a Charitable Donation
Making a formal donation to a major charity can be a great way to provide people with hope this holiday season. Find out what some of your local options are and consider donating to a cause you believe in.
