You Can Certainly Help
Catherine Pulsifer, ©2011
Have you ever wanted to help those who less fortunate but did not know what to do? Well, some people want to assist but cannot decide which organization to give to or to lend their assistance. The good news is that there are choices available to you.
One way is to check your local newspaper for organizations that are looking for volunteers. You should be able to find a large number of organizations and you should also be able to find almost any type of need from cancer to abused children. These types of organizations can only survive and carry on their dedicated service with the assistance of caring volunteers.
And, within each of these organizations is the need for funds - the need keeps growing.
One way you can help any chosen organization is to either devise a fundraiser, or to volunteer to help if they already have a fundraising strategy.
There are numerous fundraising opportunities including the old favourite of conducting a bake sale. But, there are a lot more to consider.
For example, here are a few fundraising suggestions:
- Go to as many yard sales as possible in search of used books. You can often acquire a wide variety of books for a very low price - then you can sell them as part of a fundraiser for more than you paid. Also, if you tell people you know to spread the word that you are looking for used books for the purpose of a fundraiser, you may be surprised at how many you are offered.
- If you are a crafter, you could make several items or products to contribute to a fundraiser. And, if other crafters know you, you may also ask them if they would be willing to contribute one or more of their craft to help raise money for a worthy cause.
There are many more ideas that you may wish to implement but the main thing is that you offer your services. Not only will you help others but you will also benefit through the heart warming thanks you will receive from all those involved. Join a giving community and you will surely find your talents, caring and compassion valued more than you might believe.
