Take time out from your schedule to do something positive for your community. For example, you can volunteer to help with a cause that you believe in, such as feeding the hungry. Anything you do to give back is a great way to be more generous this summer. Summer is the perfect time to donate or volunteer since you have free time reserved to take off from work or school.
If you have a specific skill set, you can help other people by teaching them the skills they need to succeed. They may take these skills and apply for a job somewhere and get that position, all based on your willingness to help them succeed. Sometimes people need a little extra help, and if you want to share your generosity, this is one of the best ways to do that.
Donating items to charity is one of the most traditional ways of giving back to organizations so that everyone can have everything they need to succeed. We live our lives in excess, not often knowing it, so anything we can do to contribute can help others greatly.
You can also donate money to charities. If everyone could contribute a few cents here and there, that money would add up to a substantial amount quickly. Maybe even enough to feed a village for weeks or months on end.
When you take time out of your busy day to volunteer, you make a conscious choice to do something to help the communities that you’re a part of to improve them. You might help with local shelters and food pantries as a start and then move to medical clinics and other vetted establishments concerned with helping those in need.
There are tons of ways to be more generous this summer if you look for them. Putting in the work is half the battle, but finding something that you’re genuinely passionate about is another. Sometimes it’s easier to dive in and do a little bit of everything, which is equally as fulfilling.
