Creative Ways to Give Back

Creative Ways to Give Back

During the holidays, we all get slammed with emails and advertisements telling us to buy buy buy. This year, we’re taking a step back and spending some time giving back. Whether that means supporting a hungry family or giving a micro-loan to a small-business owner around the globe, here are 5 creative ways to give back this holiday season.

1. Help squash hunger and poverty by giving the gift of an animal to a family in need. (heifer.org)

2. Make Secret Santa count! This year, give your “secret santa” recipient a donation to the charity of their choice for the maximum amount that you’re allowed to spend. Sure, a scarf or pair of socks sounds nice but $25 or $50 can go a long way for someone in need.

3. Empower people around the world with a micro loan to grow a business, send someone to school, and more. (kiva.org)

4. Hire a virtual assistant and help a Kenyan refugee with this iPhone app. (mashable.com)

5. Grant a random act of kindness to an individual or family in need (circleofgenerosity.net)
