Here’s something to consider: no matter how little available time you have, you can make a difference. Our Exposure Events professionals suggest that even if you have only minutes to spare, you can engage in philanthropic activities.
The internet makes giving back incredibly easy. Goodsearch.com is one way our Exposure Events team enjoys helping key causes while browsing the web. Another opportunity to help others on limited time is to donate airline miles or hotel points to the Make-A-Wish Foundation through their website. These travel perks will be used to help seriously ill children and their families make memories.
Cleaning out your house can mean uncovering infrequently used small appliances that might benefit a charity. Our Exposure Events team suggests that places like afterschool programs or volunteer fire houses could benefit from that extra blender or maybe the waffle maker that’s been collecting dust. Similarly, cleaning out your closet and donating gently used suits to a shelter could help someone struggling to land a job.
Certainly, if you have a little more time, you might offer your services at a local soup kitchen or humane society. Offer to play cards with residents at a nursing home or VA hospital. Read to children at a shelter.
Think about what your passion is and how much time you have. Anyone can be philanthropically engaged if they try.
