The festive season of Christmas and Thanksgiving is a time to give gratitude, share the happy times, and give back to the community in any way possible. As the year comes to an end, you also need to reward yourself for working hard all year to earn yourself and your family a great close to yet another one. Indeed so many people wanted to get to where they are, but unfortunately, they didn’t. And for that reason, here are some of the ways you can give back without a sweat. Fortunately, today, you do not have to physically be there to help because apps and websites like the portable North Pole make it easy for you to give back from wherever you are.
- Volunteer to serve your community
When you have free time this festive season, you should consider lending a helping hand by volunteering in a project within your community. These activities may include taking your time to serve the homeless at the shelters, build the schools shed, provide refreshments for the community sports team, so on, and so forth. The things you can do are so many, and we are sure your help will be highly appreciated. What is even better is the feeling you get after that, it is such a fantastic feeling to give back.
- Feed and clothe the unfortunate
If perhaps you have less time in your hands and you cannot get a free day to volunteer at a shelter, you may feed someone on the streets on your way to work. As small as this deed is, you may have made an enormous impact to make someone else’s day. Consider picking those pieces of clothes you rarely wear and on your way to work, drop them off a homeless lad. At no cost, you will have made a considerable impact on someone’s life.
- Donate your used toys and clothes to goodwill
Kids on the street may not have the privilege to get new toys every year like your kids. And your children might have more than they need. To teach them the virtue of giving, you may encourage them to donate the old ones that they have and give them to goodwill. This way, you spread the cheer, and you teach your young ones the good that comes from giving.
- Gift a friend
Whether it is a colleague or a friend you haven’t seen in a while, you can choose to be their secret Santa this festive season and send them a gift or a card to wherever they are. Gifting someone and putting a smile on their face is a fantastic way to give this festive season, and you could never go wrong with this.
Well, besides the bright decorations and the happy festive melodies, gift-giving will never run out of fashion. And it does feel good to give to our loved ones, and it feels even better if it is to someone who needs it more. Let the North Pole this year be wherever you are. Spread the cheer, spread the love.
