Five ways to show your generosity
There’s no wrong or right way to celebrate GivingTuesday. Here are five ways to give back.
1. Make someone smile
The kindest yet simplest thing you can do to show your generosity is to make someone smile. Whether it’s by saying “hello” to your neighbor or helping a stranger, there are endless ways to put a smile on someone’s face.
Generosity doesn’t always have to require giving money. Being kind, loving, and caring is more impactful than you’ll ever know!
2. Donate to a food bank
Due to the pandemic, a growing number of people rely on food banks to feed themselves and their families. Canned foods, pasta, rice, water, and other items are always in high demand.
Clean out your pantry or buy new food items that can be donated. Your donation means one less person will go to bed hungry.
3. Raise money for an online fundraiser
Want to increase access to clean water? Interested in donating money to a local women's shelter? GivingTuesday is a great time to set up an online donation to a cause that you care about. Ask your social network to donate as well!
4. Volunteer virtually
Virtual volunteering is more popular than ever before. Volunteer your time and services while staying safe and socially distanced. There are many ways to support your favorite causes, right from the comfort of your home! Check out GivingBackEasily.com for some options.
5. Use social media to spread the word
Social media is one of the best platforms to use for spreading the word and making things go “viral.” Do your part this GivingTuesday by informing your friends and family members about the day and how they too can do their part.
GivingTuesday is a day to be caring and generous. We implore everyone to take a minute of their time to be kind and to give, even if it’s just a smile!
