When it comes to lending a hand for charity, you do not have to make the grandest of gestures to make a difference. Even if you cannot donate thousands of dollars in one go, you can still contribute to charitable causes in a few simple ways. These include:
Hosting a Garage Sale
Raise money for charity by selling old, unneeded, yet still-useful items. In doing so, you will get more space in your home while helping out at the same time. It’s a win-win proposition.
Holding an Online Auction
If you have a few things to sell but do not want to set up a garage sale, you can still auction off your items online. You can then choose to donate part or all of your earnings to a charity of your choice. Just make sure you will conduct transactions only on secure and tested websites.
If you have no money or possessions to donate to a charity, you can still do something by volunteering for an organization. You can repack and distribute relief goods, help build and paint homes, and do pretty much anything needed to help improve others’ lives.
You don’t need to have a lot of money to be able to offer something for a worthy cause. You just need the will and determination to help.
