Try These Suggestions to Give Back Over the Holidays

Learn how you can get into the spirit of giving this year.

The holidays are a time of family, fun, and of course, giving.  During the holidays, it’s important to make an effort to give back and serve the community that has given so much to you.  Looking for new and interesting ways to give back this year?  Then try out these suggestions that you may not have considered before.

1) Pass on a Tree

While having a tree in your home for the holidays might be a family tradition, it’s also an unnecessary luxury.  This year, consider forgoing a tree and using your tree money to make someone’s holiday a little bit brighter.  You could use the money you saved to buy presents for children in need, feed the hungry, and so many other truly meaningful things.  While a tree will eventually die and be thrown away, the joy you could bring to someone this holiday season will last a lifetime.

2) Save a Life

Another great way to give back this holiday season is by donating blood.  Every year, hospitals throughout America struggle to keep enough blood for all those who need it.  By giving blood this holiday season, you could literally save a life.  Donating blood is a great way to get your entire family and even your whole community to give back.  Contact the American Red Cross to learn more about donating blood over the holidays.

3) Donate Your Time and Care

Money and goods aren’t the only things you can donate this holiday season.  You can also give back by offering your time to organizations and charities that need it.  Volunteer at your local animal shelter, women and children shelter, homeless shelter, soup kitchen, hospital, etc.  There are so many organizations in desperate need of manpower this holiday season.  Offering your time, compassion, and patience might be the most meaningful gift you give this year.
