So many people ave a desire to make a difference in the world, but aren’t sure how. With life being busy, it can be hard to find time to do something drastic. People do not want to spend a lot of money helping others since they are struggling to get by. Good news: you don’t have to do anything huge to have a huge impact.
-Smile at someone. Many reports have acknowledged that simply smiling at someone helps them feel like someone was paying attention to them, which lifted their mood. Some people have even been lifted out of a place of wanting to commit suicide because just a smile from a stranger made them feel like someone cared. Smiles are free and take minimal effort.
-Say “Yes” to donating money at checkout. Many stores have drives to raise money for charity. Some may ask for $1, $3, or $5 while others ask if you want to round your change up to the next dollar amount, with the change going to charity. It may not seem like much, but if every person who went to the store during the fundraising drive donated, a huge impact would be made.
-Use rewards points to make a difference. Rewards websites and credit cards allow users to donate points to various charities. Whether you like supporting our troops or protecting the environment, these programs have something for everyone! This is an easy way to make a difference doing what you already do. It may seem small, but every little bit makes a difference.
-If you shop on Amazon, shop through Amazon Smile. If you shop a lot on Amazon, using Amazon Smile can make a difference for a cause of your choice. A percentage of each qualifying purchase is donated to a charity that you choose upon entering the site. Amazon Smile remembers your charity, so it will allow you to raise money for your chosen charity until you decide to change it.
-Use Goodsearch as your search engine. If you are constantly looking up information online, Goodsearch is a great way to do that while earning money for a charity that you choose. After signing in/creating an account and choosing a charity, each search you do (with some exclusions) earns a penny. It may not seem like much, but it adds up the more you use it. It even keeps track of how much you earn!
