Snow Fun – Winter 2017!

Sure, winter isn’t ideal for many things, but it is great for having fun with friends! My son Mason enjoyed a snow day recently, and as you can see, there was nothing but pure joy about being able to make snow angels, have snowball fights and go on sleigh rides.

Giving Season is Every Season

The biggest time for charities is the fourth quarter of the year, particularly November and December. During those months, many celebrate holidays in which the spirit of giving is fundamental, like Thanksgiving and Christmas. At any rate, many great initiatives are made possible as a result of such generosity, and for those in need, it’s appreciated.

However, I’m of the firm belief that giving should continue all year round, because there is always a need. The summer months, though not as common as fall and winter, are actually great for charitable endeavors. If you’re wondering what you can do to make a difference, consider one of the following options.

  1. Organize a carwash, and donate the money to your local church or selected non profit organization. It’s fun while being helpful, and it gets others involved who may have not considered giving money to special causes.

  2. Volunteer for community service, such as cleaning up public space. This may not appear to have any direct benefits like giving money, but it does have a positive effect on the community, and it’s great for the environment.

  3. Donate clothes. As you pack away winter clothes and prepare for warmer weather, consider those things that you no longer need or may have outgrown, and drop them off at places like Salvation Army. Someone will be happy to have it, and can use it when the season changes again.

 

With the kids out of school, they can also be involved, and the work can become a family affair. Of course, these are just a couple suggestions. There are many more, and likely a few events compiled by others in your area in the name of philanthropy. Don’t wait until winter, do what you can today and always.
