The Give List – Giving Back on a Budget

I was wondering about all of the charities that exist and how people go about choosing which ones to support and what they can do, especially on a tight budget. It’s the holiday season, a season for giving in more ways than one.

Little things count. For example, we make cookies for our local firefighters and drop off a toy for Toys for Tots. These are easy things anyone can do.

Here is a great blog that illustrates many ways how we can give without impacting our wallets. Obviously, volunteering and giving your time is also needed and free, but there are lots of things you can do if you don’t have time to volunteer.

Check out the Give List and give back to those less fortunate.

Times are tight. We know, we know. We’ve all seen the scary headlines. Too many of the scary headlines. And we’re all feeling the pressure in other ways too. But, still, we want to contribute what we can to making the world the better place. The GiveList gives you ideas and inspiration for just that: ways that you contribute without spending or buying. Or maybe giving while buying and spending a little less than usual.
