Make Tomorrow a Good Day
Tomorrow is April Fool’s Day, and I must admit, I love pulling pranks on people, but instead spend your time and energy into making a difference in your community. Instead of plotting pranks, invest your time into thinking about how you can give back and help people in need. This is NOT an April Fool’s joke. You will be helping out your community, while feeding your soul. It feels good, trust me.
One of the easiest things you can do is donate to a charity. There are many local charities that would appreciate your support. Sometimes people feel like since they can’t donate a lot, that a few dollars won’t help, but it definitely will! A little goes a long way, but if you can’t afford to donate here are other ways you can give back.
Lend a helping hand by using sites such as volunteermatch.org to find volunteer opportunities that suit your interests/skills. This is an easy way to filter and find the types of causes that you are passionate about helping.
From clothing to books, you can donate anything that you no longer use. Drop off your items at a local Goodwill or Salvation Army location. Donate your old books and magazines to schools, shelters, or your local library.
You can give canned goods you already have in your pantry to local food banks. Since the economic downturn, people aren’t donating as much, so give what you can to help feed the hungry. Visit feedingamerica.org to find your local food bank. See how we are helping feed America!
