The holiday season is always a hectic time, we are busy cooking, cleaning, traveling, shopping, etc. But through all the craziness it's important to take a step back and do something good for others. Here are some ideas about how you can spread holiday cheer through giving to others this holiday season!
1. Adopt a kid for Christmas:
Find a local organization through you that helps get gifts and necessities to children from lower income families and adopt one! You can buy them a few essentials as well as fun toys and games for their age. Since you will already be out shopping it won't take up too much more of your time but it is a great thing to do!
2. Volunteer somewhere:
So many places need volunteers during the holidays with employees and regular volunteers being on vacation. This is a great way to help if you don't have the extra cash to donate! Find a local animal shelter or food bank that you can help out at and you won't regret it!
3. Bake Goods for Senior Citizens:
If you love to bake then this is perfect for you! Most senior centers and nursing homes need a little extra help on the holidays too and are often in need of some fun baked goods to spread the holiday joy! Make sure you call them in advance so they know exactly what you are bringing but this is a fun and easy way to help out!
4. Pay for the Person in Line Behind You
This is just a simple act of kindness that could go a long way! When at a drive thru line ask to pay for the order of the person behind you as well. Who knows, you could start a chain of kindness?
5. Be Kind to Others:
While this time of year may be crazy busy, it's always good to take a step back and remember that everyone else is going through the same holiday stress, so be kind to everyone you encounter!
