7 Ways to Make a Difference ...


Making a difference in someone's life, or the community, or even for some, the world, is a very rewarding experience.

You don't have to be some well-known person to make a difference around you.

Here are some ideas to help you make a difference in the lives of others around you!2

1. Volunteer

Charity organizations all over the United States and around the world welcome any extra help as they help to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.

Chances are, there is an organization like this close to you.

Volunteer your time to feed the homeless, or collect Christmas gifts for poor children in your area.

You can even volunteer with different groups in the Red Cross organization.

My parents used to participate in one where you were contacted by friends and family attempting to get in touch with people in the military.

Sometime, you had to deliver sad news like a death in the family, but other times, you got to be the joyous bearer of good news of new babies born and such.

It's a very rewarding experience!

2. Angel Tree

The "Angel tree" is one way that you can make a difference in a small child's life.

Go to your local Walmart or grocery store that participates with this organization, and grab a name off the tree.

This gives you the opportunity to make a child's Christmas day brighter with toys and clothing that otherwise, they would never be able to enjoy!

Give a smile!

3. Donate Clothing

Rather than having a neighborhood garage sale day, recruit your neighbors to participate in a day to gather un-needed clothing and such from their homes and take to charity locations around your community.2

Though Goodwill has its place, I recommend finding organizations that give clothing to the needy for free.

As a neighborhood, you can make a difference!
