VOLUNTEER (OR, SUPPORT THOSE THAT DO)
The second entry on our "10 Ways to Grow More Good" list was about donating to a charity. In that post, we talked about how not every donation needs to be a financial one. Sometimes a donation means gifting your services to an organization through pro bono work. Sometimes it means donating your time as a volunteer. In both cases, you're volunteering to help an organization and number eight on our list of "10 Ways to Grow More Good" is all about volunteering (and supporting those that do!).
"There is a critical resource anyone can donate, regardless of financial situation: their time."
As discussed previously, charitable organizations have long served a critical role in our culture. As organizations dedicated to providing aid and assistance to the people and programs that need it most, charities fill the gap between government support and personal donations.
And while many of them need much more financial support than they receive, not all of us are in a position to donate with a financial contribution. But the good news is that there is a critical resource anyone can donate, regardless of financial situation: their time.
"It may seem small, but sometimes the small things make the biggest impact.."
Just like financial donations, any amount helps. Whether it's a few minutes helping set for an event or life-long dedication to a particular cause, you help ensure a charitable organization can continue benefitting the world when you volunteer your time.
And for the times that you can't volunteer yourself, reach out to support those who can. It generates an incredible amount of positivity. Even something as seemingly insignificant as a text to a friend saying, "You are awesome," or leaving an encouraging comment on someone's Instagram post makes a high impact on someone's ability to continue with their work. It may seem small, but sometimes the small things make the biggest impact.
