It’s a new year, and it doesn’t necessarily have to mean an entirely new you. It can mean just you participating in a few activities that give back to your community. You’ll feel better about yourself, and you’ll be doing something to make someone else’s life a bit better.
1. Give Blood
In the U.S., 41,000 blood donations are required each day to keep up with the demand. Keep in mind that a car accident victim may need as many as 100 pints of blood. If you’re type O or AB, your blood is even more in demand because your blood type is compatible with all others. Plus, AB or O blood is always in short supply and needed.
2. Choose a Charity
If your mom died of cancer or your grandfather had heart disease and you feel passionate about the cause, donate to it. However, you don’t have to have any affiliation with the charity’s cause. You can choose a charity and make a contribution to the cause. Cancer research always needs more funding.
3. Meals on Wheels
Not everyone is able to cook or get out to purchase groceries, meaning they’re going without nutritious meals. And oftentimes, these people have nobody to check on them regularly. Sign up for a Meals on Wheels program, and you’ll be able to provide a meal to someone who isn’t able to make it for themselves. You even have the option to sit with the person and make them feel a little less lonely.
4. Choose a Charity to Volunteer
You don’t have to give money if you’re not able to or just don’t want to. Instead, you can give your time. You’d be surprised the number of organizations who need people.
