4 Kindness Tips for Financial Grownups
Ask what is needed- actually talk to the organization
If you want to help in your community, think about the things that you can do. If you’d like to help a particular organization, reach out to them to see exactly what it is that they could use help with.
Use your skills
You don’t necessarily have to have a special skill to be able to help. It can even be as simple as helping an elderly person to learn how to use a computer, a phone, or write an email.
Make it social
Doing a service project with friends or family can make things more fun for everyone. This also is a great time to bring your young children in to help. Children love to help!
Tell other people and invite them to get involved
If you share with others about how they can do good things, they are often times very excited to learn more and to become involved themselves. Sometimes others just simply don’t know where or how they can help.
