We are striving hard to have a great impact on innocent lives and we won't stop until we make the world a better place.
Why is it important that we donate to charity?
Here are just 5 good reasons:
Help other people – there are millions of people in the world who are worse of than we are at any one time. Many of these folk have problems that are not their fault or are beyond their ability to prevent or change. Humans are a social animal and the best way for mankind to advance is by helping those who are unable to help themselves. We have a responsibility to care for other people, to help those less fortunate than ourselves. When we have some spare cash, time or goods, it is an opportunity to help out.
Make a difference – donating to charity is the perfect opportunity to make a difference in the world. By making a difference to someone’s life, you are leaving behind a legacy. You are making a statement that your life was worthwhile because you made a contribution to society.
Feel good – medical and scientific research has proven beyond doubt that giving to other people makes you feel good. The feeling of satisfaction you get when you help someone else is hard to replicate with any other type of activity or endeavor. People who give feel happier, are less anxious and suffer less depression than those who don’t. Better health is enjoyed by those who donate their time, expertise or money to others who are in need. Charitable people tend to be able to cope with their own problems more easily than those who don’t donate. Giving to others improves your self-esteem, self confidence and self worth. This advantage flows into all areas of your life so you will find that you are more confident at work and in social situations.
Support a cause you believe in – different charities touch the heart of different people. If you are passionate about something or believe that a certain area is important, you will be able to support that cause by donating to charity. You might be passionate about every child having access to a good education; that nobody should live in poverty in the 21st century; that everyone should be able to experience music or art. Whatever you believe in or are passionate about, you will be able to further the cause through donations to charity.
Meet new people – donations to charity give you the opportunity to met new people and expand your circle of acquaintances. This is especially true when you donate your time or expertise to a worthy cause. While most charitable organizations always need money, many could not operate without an army of volunteers. Whether you give up your time one day a week to serve meals, give a few hours a day to sit with the elderly or travel overseas to help build houses, you will certainly meet many like-minded people along the way. As well as being potential friends, who knows where these new relationships will take you and how these new people might be able to help you in the future?
So shed any doubts you have about why donations to charity are so important and offer your time or money to a cause you believe in. Many other people will benefit but you will also benefit in so many ways.
So, is giving to charity important in your life? What kinds of things do you do to make a difference for others?
MAKE A BIGGER DIFFERENCE THIS YEAR!!
You don’t have to donate money to make a difference. Here are some imaginative ways for you to support the causes close to your heart.
HELP A STRANGER
1 Help a stranger and make their day
According to the World Giving Index 2018, 63% of people in the UK helped a stranger last year. Why not carry on the trend and hold a door open, give up your seat on the train or just smile for someone you don’t know?
Share your good deeds on Twitter and Facebook.
2 Teach your kids about giving
Get your children involved by talking to them about the importance of giving. Giving unwanted toys to those less fortunate, smiling at someone on the street, holding doors open for people or visiting a sick relative is still charity because it warms someone's heart.
Start your children's giving
3 Donate blankets, gloves, coats etc.
Spare a thought for those who are homeless or in temporary accommodation. Use our charity search to donate to a homeless charity near you.
4 Be a bobble hat hero
Encourage your children to come to school wearing their favourite bobble hat and raise money to make a difference for other young people.
5 Support a toy box scheme
Not every child has toys or games, so buying an extra toy for a toy box scheme such as KidsOut can go a long way to putting a smile on someone’s face.
GIVE YOUR TIME
6 Donate blood
Donating blood regularly - or even as a one-off - is a great way to ensure that you're giving back to those who need it. By giving blood, every donor is contributing to a nationwide challenge to provide life-saving products whenever and wherever they are needed.
Find out more and search for your nearest venue
7 Volunteer your time in a soup kitchen or homeless shelter
Charities really appreciate volunteers and there are likely to be organisations in your community that could use an extra pair of helping hands. It’s a great way to meet new people and develop skills to use at work or university.
Start thinking about volunteering
8 Take part in a charity run
Completing a charity run is a great social event which can make you feel great while helping a cause close to your heart. It also gives you an excuse to tuck into some goodies as a reward.
9 Sell or donate your unwanted gifts
If you receive unwanted presents, why not spend some time selling them on eBay, Amazon or Gumtree and donate the proceeds to the charity of your choice.
ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO GIVE
10 Shout loud on social media
Share one of our quirky Facebook wall posts to raise awareness for a cause close to your heart. It’s a free and easy way to support a charity at any time of year.
11 Hold a fancy dress day, or a dress down day
Have a dress down day, or a themed fancy dress day, at work and charge your colleagues to get involved.
12 Hold a raffle for charity
If you’ve got chocolates or biscuits leftover from a party, why not raffle them – and other unwanted goodies – for charity? You can pool your money while you decide who to donate to.
13 Organise a charity shop Secret Santa
Rather than buying your annual Secret Santa present from a high street shop, agree to buy your gifts from a charity shop. Your favourite causes will benefit and you’ll receive an unusual and unique present!
14 Encourage your employer to develop a charity partnership for 2019
If your employer isn’t already partnered with a charity, speak to your CSR or HR colleagues about getting involved.
15 Leave a gift to charity in your Will
December 21 may be the shortest day, but your giving can be long-term. A charity legacy is a tax-effective way to give, and allows you peace of mind that your giving will live on.
