Hey All! Do you often ask yourself how can my family give to others when we’re pretty tight on Money ourselves? Well the answer is you can! You just have to look around you and see that there are opportunities right in your own home for everyone in your family to give. For example…
If you have an at home Stockpile and you fear something may go bad before your family can get to eating it you can donate items to your local church food bank or homeless shelter. Why let good food go to waste when someone else can eat it.
If you have to make room for all those gifts and clothing your family got over the Holidays, then clean out your closets and give the clothing that doesn’t fit or that you haven’t worn in 6 months! If you haven’t worn it in six months the odds are you probably will never wear it. This is something I do every year. I often feel ashamed finding clothing in my closet with the tags still on. I know that these items can go to someone who will actually need and use them. It’s also like my early Spring cleaning and I feel so gratified knowing that I’m doing something to try to help others. You can take the clothes to your local Good Will, Red Cross, or shelter. I’m sure they’ll be grateful for the donations. You can also do this with old toys your kids no longer play with. Give the toys to toys for tots as I’m sure there are children who would love to play with them! There is a lot you can do to give right in your own home. You just have to take the time to do it! Hope this helps you to figure out how you want to give! How do you think you can give on a budget?
