Giving Initiatives During the Holidays:
The best time to increase your generosity is the holiday season. For those of you looking to help others in a bigger way, here are a few ideas:
1- Toy drives: Many schools, churches, and hospitals could use help to collect and transport toys to needy children. The Marine Toys for Tots www.toysfortots.org is one such program.
2- Volunteer Work: Visit your local shelter or church for information on volunteer initiatives. You can also search websites such as www.volunteermatch.org to find opportunities near you.
3- Assemble care packages: The USO Care Package program is a wonderful way to show appreciation to active military soldiers.
4- Coat drives: You can contact your local shelter or church to locate a coat drive, or partner up with an organization like www.onewarmcoat.org for details on how to start your own.
Have a plan for your Giving Initiatives during the holidays.
Thank you for making such a positive difference in this world!
